I have found that size matters. What I am suggesting is offering a VERY small piece of shrimp, maybe sucker sized. You would probably have to the pieces on a clam shell or even in a small shallow bowl or bottle cap.
I believe so. I can only see a very small speck inside each one. Originally I couldn't even see the but they have slowly developed to a spot. Not sure what part that is to them as they develope.
Also, I've been told to look for pulsing and have not seen that yet either.
The black dots will likely be the eyes (you should be able to see two if the egg is in the right position and you use a magnifying glass. Try a cheap pair of reading glasses (you will only want roughly 2 - 2.5 magnification - dollar stores often have them) if you don't have a magnifying glass available.
