It's about time i started documenting and posting some photos in a dedicated thread for my larvae and baby shrimp tank! I'm not quite sure how many are in it right now but i keep moving all the larvae from my main 140 litre breeder tank into this one which is around 30 litres.

Here's a few from tonight:

It just makes it easier for me to monitor them and catch them @caine . I'm going to start selling them and if I let them grow out in my breeder tank I don't think I will ever be able to find them when they hide and I don't want to sell my adults and may get them mixed up when netting them out etc.

Roughly 95 larvae in here at the moment! Whether they all make it to their next stage is another question but i am hoping for a good % to make it.
