Here is an update at 17 post settlement.  I did a little experiment this morning.  I gave my one remaining (I lost one at around day 10) some argent freeze dried cyclopeeze and he ate it with zest.  I think at this point I am discontinue the artemia.

Alright, I lost my last banggai.  I got busy and didn't do the water changes in the vase he was living in and I lost him the day I was going to do the water change.  Lesson learned

Good still holding.  Hopefully I have better luck since I don't have to pull them early

Pulled the juveniles from the male.  Ended up with 4.  All doing well and eating so far.  The are living in a large vase inside one of my 20 gal broodstock tanks.  Time to start the clock.

Well, I had to clean and do a water change  the Banggai vase today.  It was getting pretty nasty and I wanted to keep the conditions good.  However, it was good opportunity to take some pics of the equipment that I am using to rear these guys.  Here are some pics of the event.

A now clean Banggai vase.

Spawned again today.  Actually witnessed the egg transfer.  Pretty cool stuff.  Didn't have the camera though.

Updated for additional spawn.  Haven't decided yet if I am going to pull this one or not.

Not really, I was lucky enough to find a spawning pair at an LFS.  I have just been feeding Sally's mysis shrimp.

However, they ate the latest spawn so I will have to set up some artificial incubation.
