    Yeah, that really is great! Especially since I have, in the very beginning, put my name in for adoption! :-D

    I know Rüdiger 🙂

     

    Have a few more, since a few days the bigger can feed Tubifex

    Now they can walk and they aren’t so “boring” as their smaller (only with fore legs) siblings…

    Noticeably more mobile now Thomas?

    Yes, definitely. They walk slowly on the ground. They rarely “swim” (it’s more a hectical “speed jump”) in the plants and resting there. But not long, after a few minutes they are back on the bottom and searching for food.

    The first have metamorphosed…No, kidding of course. The parents slowly crowd back to terrestical phase. The female stayed the last night on the land area under a broken coconut piece.

    Looking really cool. :) What’s the size difference between the eldest and youngest larvae?

    ~5 – 8 mm, maybe a bit more.

    Now they are in a small glass tank, much easier to take photos. ~28 mm

    Oh dear, have found two tiny larvae in the parents tank. Only with forelegs, I never feed them, so how should they grow…

    No idea how many are in the tank, one male is still in it. He don’t wanna go out of the water. 🙂

    For the eldest it will slowly seriously, and for me too!
