Hello everyone! My nanno came in on Tuesday, so the zoeae only went 24 hours without it. They are doing well! They have gone through 2 sheds now. Water changes take forever. I've been using Mary's idea of dumping my old water into a 5 gallon bucket when I'm seeing spiral eyes looking for babies in the water that I have siphoned out. Sorry I haven't been as active on the HCA as I normally am. I've been posting daily videos of the zoeae on my youtube channel. :cloud9:

Glad to hear that they did fine without food and still moulted in the meantime! Really happy to hear things are still going well!

You can see them so well! How’d you get it to highlight them so clearly?

They have had food ;) The nanno is just one source of food that is available at all times to them :) It also is what makes the water green :)

Edit: They also only went 24 hours without the nanno ;)

Well...today marks one week since I discovered the zoeae this go around! :) They are either 7 days or 8 days old. They are doing great other than they are definitely going after one another! I have increased the feedings and I still watch them go after one another. Nothing I can do about it really. It is what it is. They are eating everything I fed before other than I added the little orange jar of dead artemia. They like those. The downside to them is they cloud the water, so I prefer not to feed that to them. ;)

Wow! Your phone takes very good pictures! A lot of the time the zoeae look like little specs, you can see them very well in your phone pictures.

I have an iPhone, I must not know how to use it right! I can never get pictures to turn out like that! I have one good picture of my two year old, in the portrait mode, only good one I’ve been able to get! Lol!
