Here is a picture of my oldest babies (still in the egg!). Sometimes I can see them swimming around inside the egg. I can see the eyes and I can barely see their little tentacles surrounding the yolk sac. Guess I better order some mysids...

and also a picture of mom, dad, dad and eggs.

I can see the ink sac on the embryos now. I will post more pictures as soon as I get my %&$#! PC working again... I see a hard drive rebuild in my future... in the mean time, I am borrowing hubby's ibook...

:goofysca: Just had a bit of a scare... went downstairs to check on the tank and found the breeder tank overturned and the eggs loose in the 55 gallon tank! I found two of the eggs right away, but I had to take out about 1/2 of the live rock before I found the other batch. I figure that one of the embryos should hatch in the next day or so since it's yolk sac is almost all absorbed... the other embryos are not quite so far along.

Aye, that is scary! How do you reckon that happened?

My girlfriend is determined to keep some Cuttles now. I have officially successfully spread the ceph addiction. I told her there were some eggs available but we're not ready to set up another tank yet.
