Thanks you all. Some have died already. They got caught between the mesh screen and the plastic grid of the holding net.

Phyl, he had just gotten the seadragons, I didn't ask but perhaps he has permits and whatnot to keep them. He had them shipped in from Australia but I don't know what all is involved with that. He's in the works trying to breed them. But, having only just gotten them, he's not been successful yet.

Did you purchase the babies or did your reidi give birth?

Well, I have about five left. They don't seem to be impressed with the food so doubtful they will survive. I'm afraid it's just to late. I'm disappointed but am not gonna dwell on it. I was not ready for babies and had requested one that wasn't pregnant. But, I don't think he has a horse that isn't pregnant. Well, hopefully there will be more. I will be prepared next time.

Hara, sorry I totally missed your question. Draco is about 1.5hrs from me and I should have called him and asked. I never even thought of that.

as a last ditch effort you might want to try egg yolks, I have raised many fry with it.

you do need to put the babies in a seperate container to do this tho. Hard boil an egg. take out the yolk and mash it. Put in a drop of vitamins if you have any. then put the yolk in a coffee filter or paper towel and squeeze it through the sides and into the water.
it will milky up the water just a little, so you will need to change out some water after each feeding. Let the yolk water stay in about an hour or so for them to eat. (I kind of think they "eat" by default and get a little nutrition). This might get them big enough to eat other foods.

coincidently, I just got my newsletter from marinedepotlive.com, draco marine is on the front page. They are now supplying marinedepotlive with reidi and erectus.

Very cool. They have no problem shipping when you are ready Hara. He told me they've shipped as far away as Italy so, getting some down to you shouldn't be a problem. lol

I'm feeding the babies every hour in an attempt to get them to feed but honestly, I can't tell. I'm gonna keep trying though.

I have a few left, some that I thought had perished were actually still alive when I went to remove them. I've moved the babies to their own tank, hope that helps.

Well, none of the babies made it.
But, the Reidi were breeding again today. I'd been checking in off and on and everything seemed fine. I last checked about two hours ago and they seemed done. I just checked on them again and found the female has aborted a mess of eggs. So, now I'm not sure if any of the eggs got transferred or not.
