    Got a few fun shots of my blue jellies and some of the week old shrimplets. I didn't get clear shot of the 11 day old babies with the first bits of blue, they wouldn't hang out anywhere useful. Got zoomed in enough with a large magnifying glass infront of the camera.

    This one is for size reference. The baby us on the curl of zillas shell next to the bridge

    Nice, I'm jealous I have wanted some of those blue jellies for awhile(don't have the funds). Look forward to updates?:p

    yes, lots of updates....one of the few places my obsessive observations are appriciated :)

    When my colony expands enough they might be looking for new homes thru here.......:)

    Played with the camera and magnifying glass some more (its a little awkward but kinda fun) here's another feeding shot and a couple of the babies in between colors (11-12days old)

    Very nice shrimplets! Congrats featherblue :)

    If featherblue sells them here he will sell them in the Buy/sell/trade/free forum and you have to have 50 posts to buy or sell there so hopefully by the time they get ready to sell some you will have 50 posts :)

    its amazing how much theyve grown.....i think im at 2 wks now, but ive lost track a little. At least half the babies are blue. a few have red on their ridges still, but the panels are all blueing up. the mom who dropped first is preggo again as of the first. its a nice date, hopefully ill be able to keep better track of the timing this round
