i found a clump of super red eggs on the gravel a few days ago and i usually throw them away anyway this time i tried to artifically hatch them in a jug and airstone method and what a nice suprise i got when they hatched in 3 days i thought about 50 atfirst but ater today moving them into a larger tub there is just over 100 wrigglers heres hoping they survive .

They will eat anything adults will eat, cucumber is a good first food, nice and soft for them, once they are feeding properly then add a bit more variety of foods.

update young nearly lost all of their egg sacks a few grazing on a small slice of cucumber here,s hoping they continue to develop im changing the water in the hatching tank every morning and replacing with the tank water they came from so fingers crossed they continue to survive these are quite stressfull to grow on as this is the first time ive had to do this so its the blind leading the blind it feels like il keep you updated on their development. Very Happy

a killing isnt the half of it! the person who either gets them over, or breeds their own will be rich!!

not that i recommend breaking the law Evil or Very Mad

nice work of saving them though, always a good feeling!
