well now were down to 4 i think in the breeder cage... found a dead one around lunch time. the other one i can find seem to be fine still swimming around and such. i still havent seen any more in the tank which leads me to believe that they hatched the other night and most may have been lost to filtration and the 1 cardnal that is left... oh well maybe ill get lucky and start seeing little octos crawling around in a few weeks. the mother seems to be fine. she has actually been in the process of excavating a series of tunnels under the rocks for her new den. she still isnt really coming out but i guess that will take some time. anyway thats all for now. oh yeah and the reef bugs do work its amazing there were thousand and thousands of little mysids shrimp and pods crawling and swimming in the tank last night.
