A. arcuatus at day 40

Unfortunately I lost three larvae yesterday at day 40. I'll be happy if I get a single fish through this run. The three that were lost were the three smallest and the one in the photo although smaller was one of the more developed larvae. So sad to have lost her. The larger larvae that are left all look good and have been eating cultured copepods and Artemia for the past week.

I did decide to concentrate on this larval run and have not started another yet. I plan to start the next one in a couple of weeks with a new moon spawn and I hope these larvae are far enough along by then to move into a grow out tank.
