Day 20 of P. venusta trial 5

This larval trial is still doing well. :)

On Day 15 I transferred all of the larvae (33) to a new/clean tank.
They continue to grow and develop. One thing I've noticed is that they seem more sensitive to light now so I'm adding more algae to the water which seems to make the larvae more comfortable.

There are 4 larvae that are smaller in size, longer bodied and have a jaw line that looks heavier than the other larvae. I'm assuming these are the African Flameback larvae (C. acanthops) and am happy that out of 20 Flameback eggs we have 4 larvae. That's a good percentage!

Here is another out of focus video taken today of the larvae.
