Is she still eating? Been my experience that they seem to get very active after the eggs hatch, almost to the point of senseless behaviors. Ink did this for probably 4 to 6 weeks after her eggs disapeared. She continued to eat right up to the end. Keep offering food and keep sharing those great pics with us!

they hatched about 6 days ago... i think they all dissapeared throught the filtration and the digestive track of the cardnal i couldnt catch... the few i did find i put in breeder nets only to have them all dissapear after about 4 days... oh well at least ahab is still alive.
