CONGRATS!
It's inspiring to see people succeed with species once thought unkeepable.

Thank you!

I looks like a couple of amphipods made it into the petri dish despite my efforts. So, the next day when I went to check, most of the eggs looked pretty chewed. So, I'll have to wait 'til the next round.

Hopefully the cultures will bloom soon, so I can start trying in earnest.
