Oh wow they look great, I’ve never seen any larvae in my tank unfortunately. Lots of berried females though!

Odin, you need to remove the berried female into a separate breeder tank because adult alphas eat the larvae. They love live food. I feed them live baby brine shrimp and they are all gone within 24 hours. In my breeder tank I have a small breeding box with small slots so the larvae can escape from the mother.

Awesome. Can you put up a pic of your tank? Do you live near the ocean?
Ok I’ll take a couple of shots of my breeder tank when I get back home later. I move the larvae from the breeder tank into a large 7 litre food plastic container. The reason is because all the larvae have died in the past and it’s easier to move and clean the food container. I stay on a small hill in Singapore :smile:
