Love this thread. It's fun to see each stage. Thanks for sharing. Your gill pics. in your last post came out fine btw.

Keep em coming.

Animal testing is a terrible idea; they get all nervous and give the wrong answers.

Eggs - Day 11

Day 11: The eggs are roughly between 224 and 250 hours old. A tiny spot is barely visible on the ventral side of each embryo. It's the heart and liver although impossible to photograph. The eyes, and heart and liver area are visible to the named eye. There is also a steady rotation of the embryo within the jelly.
