    although its hard to say for babies you will not see them for at least 2 weeks probably more like a month. It took almost a month till a could actually see Legs.

    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.

    From what can be seen on their website, I can see why your LFS would be happy to tell you the wholesaler as, at least at first blush, they appear to be first class for this type of facility.

    Since they are in California, I would put a small wager (SWAG) on your new addition to have come from Haiti.
