Kuda babies notes

We had 100++ babies released on May 2nd, 2015. As of today May 15th we have about 16 left

The father was placed in a kreisel tank the day before birth and removed the day after.

The babies were fed fresh hatched enriched baby brine shrimp (fhebbs) from birth.
After the second day we added parvocalanus copepods and rotifers. The babies appeared to be eating the rotifers.
We had some significant losses to date which I attribute this to not giving them a small enough food to start with.

We have not had any losses for the last 3 days

In our previous attempts we had problems with hydroids so the tank is wiped down daily.

We haven't gotten there yet but we needed a larger food than fhebbs before and now we can grow brine shrimp to any size.

This is the first batch from these parents.
The babies have not started to hitch yet
