C. perlatus babies!!

Inspiration to do this again.


Day One for the new perlatus babies! I’m estimating about 400 zoeae, which sounds like a lot, but with an ultimate survival rate of maybe 2%, that would mean eight on land. Since I’ve never gotten straws to land before, even eight would be a big victory for me. We shall see…

This new kreisel build has its issues. It’s not leaking, which is a win, lol. The rest of the things are fixable, I believe, so it will just involve plenty of tinkering–as does any new piece of equipment that one builds from scratch without a blueprint. I need to put something black behind the tank to make the videos clearer, but this is what we’ve got for now.

I’ve put my shop on hold to concentrate on this attempt. It would be wonderful to have enough survive to be able to learn about them from birth. Send lots of good vibes for their health and growth.







I figured out comments! Have at it.
