Temp is 25C that's as low as its going to go without a chiller (which I am trying to sort) add some plastic plants and they are moving about swimming well, hunting the mysis. Watched one stalk up and pounce.

They don't like it too bright so just enough light to keep night/day cycle. Next door to there tank is the mysis breeding tank, but don't think it's going to keep up with their appetites so have offered more mysis and feeder shrimp from lfs.

i think the second video's thumbnail didn't render because the video is short (<10 seconds) but the video plays fine.

Thanks for contributing!! Great stuff.

Hi everyone,

Now have at least six healthy active little babies, eating well and all look perfect.

Does anyone know why they stick the tentacle with the suckers on up in the air like a periscope? Is it like a lure to interest prey? Mine are all doing it, looks very cute.

Amazing! Thanks for that link, my baby's also Bob up and down, specially when a mysid swims past they actually look excited.
They are getting better at catching the shrimp already yesterday was lots of missing but today both times I watched them strike they got them.
