    Hi all,

    My O. Vulgaris laid eggs 2 days ago, and I plan on trying to rear them once they hatch (if they're fertilized... she was wild caught).

    Does anyone have or know of any pictures of rearing tanks? I have Roger Villanueva's article on rearing but don't have the diagrams to go along w/ it.

    Also, what's a somewhat inexpensive but nutritious food source (for both planktonic and benthic stages), and where could I obtain it? I have live baby brine but don't think this would sustain them.

    I appreciate your help! :grin:
