Re: Artemis, Day 14 carrying eggs

You guys crack me up. :hlol: It is SO hard to keep track of them all. Started a new full count today and we're up to 195 as I tucked them all in tonight. Found them congregating in big groups, all snuggled together happily. They seem to be really companionable little creatures, thankfully. I have be...

Re: Artemis, Day 14 carrying eggs

Did a land count yesterday and there are currently 215 moving around, eating, and climbing. There may be more underground finishing up molts, so I'll keep the empty tank warm for a few more days to see if more emerge. Here's a video from Facebook. https://m.facebook.com/mary.akers?fref=nf&ref=m_noti...

Re: Artemis, Day 14 carrying eggs

Just moved #150 in a shell over to the land tank. I don't have time for a bigger update, sorry, I'm barely keeping up, and there are more still in the water in shells. Will need to figure out a bigger baby tank very soon. Thanks for going along on this crazy ride.

Re: Artemis, Day 14 carrying eggs

It's like The March of the Penguins on the ramp in my transition tank. I can't keep up. I currently have 66 little ones in shells and on land (plus the two from the first batch) and more still in the water. I know they won't all survive, but these numbers are truly astounding me. I will be really in...

Re: I HAVE ZOEA!!!!!

You are doing SO great!!! I have a good feeling about this batch!! Really super excited for you--you deserve all the success you're having. You have earned it! And I meant to text you again, but those shells you sent me have been a LIFE SAVER. Or more accurately, multiple life savers. So many of the...

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.
