It's been non stop floating babies. Trying to spot the transitioned ones has been somewhat impossible.
Only a few minutes ago did I see two on the front of the tank.
They are tiny and nearly completely transparent, making it impossible to spot them if they are anywhere else.
Haven’t seen the two or so baby Opae in a while.
I’ve increased the amount of light above the tank to help the algae on the walls grow faster - to try and make it more like tank 3 (see the second image: tank 3 on the left, tank 2 on the right).
Here's what under the lights, on the waters surface - it's bubbly because, it's floating on pockets of air the algae gives off:
Tank3 and the jar:
Everything is going great, seams that the baby Opae are at about adult size (in tank 3, see image below), compared to the actual adults. The jar baby Opae are only half the size but still growing faster than in tank 1.
What was a baby in Jan/Feb, is in the yellow square outline, the adult is to the right in the acorn outline.

when in doubt, change it out... Using fresh mixed water...
