Re: I HAVE ZOEA!!!!!

I SO feel your pain!! Migraines here, too. All that staring into water with a bright light trying to pick out tiny, half invisible little squiggles. Maddening! (I put my shop on hold, too. This is a fill time job!) But you are doing so fantastic!! Those are some lucky little zoeae!

Oh, no! I'm so sorry. For them, but also for you. All that work and time and care! I live in fear of this happening in my tanks.

Re: Leaf litter

About 40 seconds in the microwave works, too. I place them on a plate, sandwiched between two paper towels and that helps to absorb the moisture. Then let them air dry for a few minutes. If they are still not completely dried out, you can give them 20-30 additional seconds.

Re: Artemis, Day 14 carrying eggs

I've had three take shells and go to land. Two met untimely deaths (lots of pitfalls when you're that tiny), but one seems to be doing pretty well. Took a video of my setup and the little new guy to give a shot of size-perspective. http://maryakers.com/day-44/ I still have some stage five and severa...
