well this morning i went down and decided to try a different method in photographing the eggs. i used my point and shoot thats got a pretty good macro on it and a pretty bright LED flashlight and got this shot. you can see the eggs are showing the eyes developed and if you look close you can start to see the bodies forming.

conannys still taking frozen shrimp eagerly about every other day. at first i had to place it in the den but now when she sees it outside the tank she leaves the eggs and comes to get it from me then goes back in.

That is a great shot! I can see the eyes! I sometimes use a flashlight. Someone also suggested setting up a bright light like they use for portrait photography.
