Charging people? Hmmmmm. It would certainly help with operational costs, but I'd rather have a heart attack trying to raise monies elsewhere than deny people access to something like this.

I don't think he meant that you would actually charge people, just put out a hat in case they want to tip you for the great entertainment.

Umm, yeah, like he said.....

Those embryos in the lower egg mass are getting extremely close to hatching!!! You can see myriad little black eyes staring at you ... do a CU

BTW, if you want a chance to see these things hatching, you'd be best to check it out ~ 0700hrs NZST; be looking at the lower egg capsules.

Hmm... not sure how the conversion goes, with daylight savings time and all, but I think that's about noon here in California. Will be watching =)

For those who might be witnessing the joyous event of squid hatching. Please do get a few screen capture (Print scrn on the keyboard, open sofware such as photoshop or even Paint iirc and crtl+v to paste the screen capture) :nyah:roud:

They're hatching! :squid: :baby: :squid:

Haven't seen one actually emerge from an egg yet, but you can see a few of the little guys swimming around now!

edit:
The first baby squid picture from this batch:
babysquid.jpg

The squid (white blur) is swimming to the left. Yes, horrible quality, but I'm having to fight with other spectators to control the camera; makes it hard to get a good shot.

edit2:
Well, I don't see a tank full of squid. Did I jump the gun and call some other tiny beast a squid?

The webcam is going to be down most of tomorrow afternoon, while I install a sump and the chiller unit. You'll probably hear me swearing from where you are (in fact it would be a hoot if I left the cam on and you saw me in operation, swearing).

I dislike sumps ... as in balancing flow rates, and I've got to keep the flow real low, as there's squid in a second tank in there right now (they've been separated as they'd die in the present flow regime), so there are going to be valves on each and every line (hope I don't burn out power heads). Cross fingers we don't have a flood!
