Thanks Paul! That one is actually more bright orange, but does look red in this picture. I love the white stripes too, they are so bold it looks like someone painted them on.

Thanks! I had to catch up to you and all of your new RFAs! Babies are good, still tiny but EVERYWHERE! Well over 100 but no telling how many will actually survive and grow. I can still see several inside the mom, so I'm hoping those continue to develop and come out bigger and with some color.

Almost the entire sand bed is sprinkled with babies, here's an idea of their size.



Here's the female with tons of babies under her. Many of the males are also hiding babies under them, it's really cool.

Very cool! If only a quarter made it, that would still be plenty!

That's incredible. It is fun watching all the developments. I truly hope you get to raise a very large number of them Sand Dollar. Can't wait to see them grow up and get color!!!

Thanks for the support everyone! It is quite the journey. While very exciting, it is also kind of stressful wondering day to day if they will make it. Here's a video of the mama nem delivering more babies tonight!! She just keeps popping them out!
