    That last hatch (9/10) is doing really well. I have hundreds of larvae at day 4. I saw the first "waggle" today. Hopefully I can keep this brood alive.

    The 8/25 group of 14 or so is in growout mode now. All or nearly all are misbars from what I can see. Lots of teardrops. Since this bunch was lucky to survive a slight heater malfunction I guess I'm not surprised they are misbars. It will be interesting to see how the 9/10 batch does in comparison because they have not had any water quality or heat issues to contend with. Historically 95% of my orange ocellaris are fully barred.

    WOOT! 60 DPS! The fourteen or so from 8/25 batch is doing well. They are all named Alex (after my son who was born 8/23). :gay1:

    I can't even put into words how excited I am. So many years of waiting.

    Striping has improved with each batch!

    The 60 DPS batch of 14 is mixed in with two other batches. One orange ocellaris group that is 1 month older, and a group of about 120 Darwins about a month younger. In the red circle on the left is a 60 DPS and on the right is one of the younger ones with full stripe and really dark color for it's age.
