DT's oyster eggs....

Well I made the jouney to get some DT's plankton today and picked up some DT's oyster eggs to try out. Bad think is despite wrapping them with a ice pack they still thawed in the trunk. The temp here is in the low 30's so they didn't get to warm.

Do you think they are ok yet?

Anybody try these out yet and have any reviews? I"m not sure how often and how much to feed either of them to my 110g reef tank. Has 5 smaller clams, about 20 softies, 10 lps, and 15 sps(1/2 of them are cmaller frags)

I've had that happen too and never had any bad results though it is recommended not to refreeze things. When you prepare to feed the food once defrosted, smell it to make sure it at least doesn't smell bad. A bad smell can indicate bacterial decay that can make things sick.

We, as a people, know so much more about outer space than we do about our own oceans. This lack of knowledge can very well spell the dangers that lay in wait for us.

The oceans surely would swallow us before a rock comes down to smite the planet of it's life.

Eggs are typically a little hardier than other types of frozen foods.

I think they're probably fine but the sniff test is a really good idea.
If you wake up breathing CONGRATULATIONS!!! You get another chance to do it right.
