Are you expecting to sell these babies to the public or wholesale to stores only? I'd be keen for a baby pair once they're eating readily on prepared foods.

Not sure.

I'm hoping to get the parents back this weekend!

Tank is running well and the babies are growing nicely.

Starting to tidy up the leads and make room for all the gear.

Fitted marine ply shelves and peg board backing.

This is the level with the UPS and light controller.

LED lights installed. Just some cheap ones from China, but they span the full 6 foot, do a summer light cycle and the full lunar cycle.

It's pretty tight under there, but I've hung them right up against the row of tanks above.

The controller for the lights. It tells you how much blue/white light the light is using at each point in the day cycle.

With some of the pairs once they get going.

I've only just moved them in less than 3 weeks ago, so I wasn't expecting a spawn.

This pair always eat their eggs, but at least it lets me know that everything is on track.

Wow looks very nice! Just curious, what is the % rate you are getting on babies for nice snowflake patterns? Do you have more pairs for spawning planned in the future?
