    I've tried to be less intrusive, to avoid the parents eating the babies, but early this morning or sometime last night, they have hatched. Is that the right word? LOL. They are not free swimming yet, but are "huddled" in a place the parents are guarding in the sand. I've got my brine shrimp "brewing" and expect them to hatch any time. I hear they can live a number of days without food as they feed on the yolk sack, but I'll offer food as soon as I see them swimming. I'll post again, some videos soon. Trying not to bug them too much right now. The parents were happy to eat just now when I fed them. Gwen
