You need the HD to see these guys. So tiny! They have moved from the shell where their eggs were to various shells in the area. Very skittish though. This is 5 days after first seeing them. Great tank to watch on my desk at work.

I find it interesting how the parents have an urge to cover up the shell except for the opening.

hrmm interesting.. they may not be pure multies. from my understanding multis dig out the area around a shell until it hits the bottom of the tank. its the ocellatus that i find bury shells and hide all but openings. idk just my two cents here. either way i love shellies!!!

There are no signs of hybridization. Some shells are dug out to the bottom. They dont bury a shell except for the opening. Instead theres just like a dusting of sand over the shell.
