These are some of my S.officinalis juveniles which I'm raising at the Malta Centre for Fisheries Sciences. They are now 52 days old now and today they were transfered to two glass aquaria in the trials room for growing on. Note the three newly hatched paralarvae and the paper clip for size comparison.


Another bunch of eggs hatched this morning...


this is the link to the first video of the first brood: http://www.tonmo.com/forums/vbtube_show.php?do=tube&tubeid=59&t=17115#watch

Are the three tiny ones in the first photo from the same egg cluster as the others?

No they are from a different batch, just hatched yesterday. I put them in for size difference in the photo.

Very cool! Did all the other little guys hatch just before the video?
