what an adventurous introduction thread this turned out to be! :biggrin2:

Unfortunately she won't last much longer now that she's laid her eggs. Do these tiny eggs appear to be clear, or are there any dark spots within them? Wondering if you're about to have your arms full!

Thank You now I am just trying to find out what kind. It does not match any of Pygmy Species That I have looked up so I am pretty sure it is a Juvenile of some Kind

Maybe start a new thread in the ID Requests forum, or go straight to creating a Journal. Maybe Octopus digueti?

So these Eggs that were laid are starting to Develop. Eye spots are forming. I have place to get Live Copepods and other Planktonic Animals for possible food testing and a Fry net to keep Them seperate. I know it is a long shot.....

It is always worth experimenting! Do post what you try and how long the hatchlings survive.
