Spawned 12/4/19, hatched 12/5/19.
Tom gave me some S. splendidus larvae, just hatched.  Placed them after acclimating to a 82F tub with Isochrysis and had been running for a week, with nothing but copepods, unfed and mostly dead. They look great, yellow, and darting at parvocalanus nauplii. 24 hours after hatching at 82F, they have eyes! Warmer temps sure do make development happen faster.
