Thanks for the wishes, guys! The second is still stubbornly transparent as of this morning....

Luis: The blue in the pic may be slightly enhanced due to the flash, but it is definitely there visually as well. Maybe they are a little faster in our warmer waters?

Now for a dumb question :D : How do you guys wean them off the BBS and onto something more artificial? Do they "naturally" do so once they color up?

Finally...no 2 has also started to color up! :)

This time Luis is right - the black coming in before the blue, or at least the blue is not quite visible to the naked eye yet even though it is obvious in a flash picture as shown above.

The 2 survivors.....

Sorry I missed your question.I give them diet after meta.But I never wean them from bbs if I can.
And regarding the blue band,it can be seen with a flash light before it is readily visible.

Li Chieh, would you be so kind and describe the first of days of larval life with regards to feeding. What, when and how much?
Thank you.

Sorry....must have missed that out. I treat them not much differently from my percula larvae - rotifers for the initial days. Since I work, I really only have time to give them one feed a day, unless it is the weekend or holidays. What I do is harvest the rotifers in the morning, and dump the lot into the larvae tank. Also, normal green water technique...

Thank you for the swift answer. Here's more questions for you :).
What type of rotifers and algae did you use (SS,S, normal sized rots)?
