Now that's really cool! Ive got some black backing on some of mine but it doesn't give the desired effect like yours, awesome stuff.

Thanks! I knew I want a background when I saw that beautiful visitor complex display tank posted here by opae ula related. It does make a difference!

So finally after circling the globe 5 times carried by ocean currents :wink: my free swimming larvae transformed into next stage that looks more like a miniature adults, less than 3 mm long. It took about 20 days in temperature 24 Celsius ( 75F) and salinity 18 (specific gravity 1013)
