More triops

About 10 am yesterday I put the remaining triops eggs in their protective (to keep the older one from eating them) glass jar, and last night Lawrence spotted some hatchlings. They are supposed to take 18-48 hours to hatch, so we were somewhat surprised. This morning there appears to be quite a good brood of them, here's hoping I can raise them. Once they are big enough that the older one won't eat them, I'll tip the jar on it's side so they join the main tank, but I'm planning to leave it there, because the big one seems to enjoy swimming around it.

Last night I also gave the older one some tiny pieces of carrot, and it went crazy, picking them up and going from one to the other... so I assume that was a welcome relief from food pellets, especially as they are mostly gone this morning.
