some happy little sultans

after some hard work keeping these eggs viable and stopping the infertile eggs from fungus and spreading i was excited to see these hatch.....



i turned around and came back 5 mins later



im over the moon as the first lot of eggs i found kicked out of the cave didnt hatch... this is the second lot i found outside the cave one morning about a week ago...
i didnt have very high hopes for this lot of eggs but i tried something different incubating the eggs and either it worked or they were going to hatch anyway but it doesnt matter now
