Just waiting for this one berried female to release the last 3 of her larvae. I was hoping to witness it myself tonight. Seems that they're just about to come off. Not sure if there were more and if so where did they go? There are other baby opae in the tank but I think they're too big to be counted as newly released from this berried female.

No not yet. It looks like at times she's trying to flick the babies off. Have you?

Yeah, it is extremely fast. Here is a slow motion of it I took a while back.
