A little off topic

Post by Reef_Logic on September 16th 2010, 12:43 am

Sorry for getting off temperate tanks. I had to share the event that happened today. sooo while at work today i was talking to some customers about the breeding cycle of bamboo sharks. We had an egg in our shark tank. As i was talking to the customer i picked up the egg and noticed some algea had started to grow across the face of the egg. I was going to show the customer the baby shark and how it curls and forms in the egg because they are generaly transparent... somewhat.. anyways i started brushing away the algea with my thumb while the egg was in my hand and after about 20 sec the egg started thrashing and a nice and healthy baby bamboo shark slid out. It was quite an experience for me as most people in this hobby raising eggs never actually see them hatch. They just come home to or wake up to the baby in the rocks or something of that nature. Just thought i would share. I thought it was pretty neat to have a shark hatch in your hand.

No problem! That's amazing that you had a shark hatch in your hand! Certainly one of those once in a lifetime experiences. I'm jealous haha, that would have been really cool to experience.
