You mis-counted. there were 4 I think in the video
Pardon my mistake. I'm just too enticed by your Alpha. :laugh:
Ha. No big deal, just saying. Can't wait to your new tank with Alphas.

I am 99,9% positive about the snail eggs. They look typical to me. Interestingly enough I wanted to ask you about your snails and how much eggs they lay. :grin:

I was able to isolate the berried Alpha in a jar. I also was experimenting to see if the Alpha would eat a opae ula larva (see 1.03 mark) and after 24 hours the larva is still there. So this particular Alpha was not interested but I noticed it was staring at it for the longest time. :what:

Ultimate goal is to video an Alpha larva. :sidesmile:

Opae Ula larva disappeared in the jar. :( I did have some tiny holes on the lid that it could of went through or got eaten by Alpha. I will try again without any holes next time to eliminate that possibility.
