Thanks for posting Andy!

Yes, this is very exciting progress for us...although still LOTS of work to do! The good news is we now seem to have a nice supply of eggs to work with, and have really ramped-up our algae and copepod production. Lots more exciting things to come in the next few months... Stay tuned!

Thanks goes to you Chad. Those are great photos. The larvae look huge at day 14 and they surely are filling up the bellies. Go Parvo. My students felt better about spending all that time on the Parvo after I showed them your larvae today.

Glad you like the pics! I certainly can't take all the credit... those photos were taken by our dedicated assistant Melissa. To answer a few of the questions above: The tanks were about 4 feet deep & We got a just a handful to that stage, but we sacrificed many (that would likely have made it) along the way to get those pics. :cry:

We'll keep you posted as we keep working!
