Sewellia Fry

The other night I had shifted the Najas mass to one side to see how the java moss in the 20 high was growing and spotted an odd movement on the sand. Looking closer, I was pleasantly surprised to find a wee Sewellia among the cherry shrimp. I suspect there would be more, but the LDA-08's have probably been eating the eggs. Need to move them to another tank, the 20 was actually the QT tank at one time. Then some more fish came along and I didn't have another tank suitable or ready... Filtration is 2 aquaclears, 200 and a 100, along with an air-driven sponge filter. I think there are 9-10 adult Sewellia lineolata and reticulata in the tank, been there for months and it's impossible to get a head count w/out stripping down the tank. Also 7 LDA-08 uber-dwarf BN and uncountable cherry shrimp (started as a dozen or so a few months back.)
Pics (good ones at least) of such wee critters are hard to get with my autofocus point-and-shoot camera, but I'm too busy/lazy to buy another SLR and learn to use it.

For size reference, that's a small cichlid stone on the left and .5mm NLS Grow pellets scattered around the rock.
