    Guys I was able to capture an amazing video of a newborn crayfish struggling to free itself from its molt (very common). This one was stuck to a dead sibling. The entire thing took about an hour but I condensed it to 5 mins. At one point I remove the dead sibling with a wooden BBQ skewer. Happy ending :)

    Like an olloclip? I think thats what theyre called. Ive been contemplating getting one forever, I just hate the idea of having to take my case off each time to use it. Im impressed with the video quality though, might have to look into one.

    Yes. I got some cheap off brand on Amazon. And yeah having to go caseless is the only downside

    Fantastic video but how could you stand it. That little guy looked like he was struggleing so hard I wanted to help him. I saw Waver walking by and the red shrimp. How many babies so far? You must be so excited. Keep those pictures coming please. Alison:;hi1

    She's dropped a dozen or so but still holding tons. And yeah it was hard to watch but nothing you can really do. Keep in mind that's a macro lens, the actual babies are almost too small to see with the naked eye, let alone help pull off that molt lol

    I was teasing you. Just looking at the end of the bamboo squewer gave me an idea of the size. I also wanted to tell you by the way that thanks to your snail pictures and Bijous I ended up buying 5 mystery snails. 3 gold and 2 ivory. Now I want to buy one like the magenta one with the light foot that you posted. How many of Wavers babies are you planning to keep? Alison

    She's dropped about 25 babies. She still has at least a couple hundred. Peeps is my puffer.
