The Lone Survivor

The lone survivor P. vebusta is responding well to antibiotics. Yesterday the larval tank which had a cleaning two days prior had a golden colored bacterial slime on the walls and floor. I've moved our survivor to a new clean tank and am continuing antibiotic treatment. She is being fed wild caught plankton at 1 food item per ml. She looks a little thin to me but is hunting and exploring her environment.

I've chlorinated everything having to do with the larval tank and am ready to start another run when fertile eggs are available. I collected eggs the last two nights and both batches were infertile.

Here is a video taken yesterday at 26 days old.
Sorry for the quality but it's better than nothing! :)
