If you look at the odds (inspite of them being large egged, we don't have a successful hatch and survive in the journals) and you weigh the possibilities of finding a hummelincki ...
On the other hand, can you tell if it is a male? Females have a nasty habit of setting up to brood within two weeks of going into the tank and producing infertile eggs. I so would like another male but would hesitate on a female.
hmm did not know that about the females...what are some clues for hummelincki or are they the same for briereus? i really really doubt there are any babies left..ive checked at all hours fed at all hours...the closest i came was a six legged serpant star ha
broke down and got her...well not sure if he or she yet was still balled up....she came in on monday so i asked the guy what she came in as and he said carribean two spot.. he also had a merc that came in as dwarf...so this is at least encouraging that he can ask for 2 spots instead of just carribean species...got her yesterday dripped her and let her be alone all day and night.. this morning i found the remnants of my 2 nas. snails i bought when i was "ghost feeding" the babies so she is eating...today she was "molded" on a rock but did take a frozen shrimp left the interaction at that...she is a little bigger than i wanted best estimate is mantle sligtly smaller than a golf ball...ill post pics in a couple days as not to spook her
