Hi,

Finally, I found my 1 year old Atyopsis carries her eggs, but how to make them hatch? Is it difficult to grow the larvae?

Regards,

Jeffrey

Very cool, Jeffrey, thanks for sharing the pic of your ovigerous female with us! :nice:

I'm afraid trying to rear the larvae will be difficult because they'll require brackish/salt water and no one yet knows the successful formula, or at least no one has documented it that's been available to us.

However, some people are trying and here's a thread you can read; this is about the most info we have for now, unless someone else comes in and adds to it:
