Hi all,

As you know now, Debbie (dbbga) is letting me have 6 of Jetta's babies to attempt to raise - thanks, Debbie!

We both know that the chances of seeing any of these babies through to maturity are slim, but I'll try my best. I'm turning the babies loose in a 19 gallon mature tank teeming with amphipods. (and thanks to Colin, for encouraging me to take on this project!)

These pics were taken by my husband Bill of Jetta and the babies in Debbie's tank. One shows Jetta, another Jetta and the containers with the babies, and the third shows a baby. These are the first published pics of Jetta's babies! :smile:

Good luck on raising them. From what I have read, it is difficult, but I'm sure that if anyone can, you can do it. Best of luck.
