Aqua Dragon Update

This morning we were excited to find several of our aqua dragons had fully hatched from their eggs. These hatchlings are extremely tiny as their eggs are as small as the head of a pin! Once your eyes have focussed on the tank it is possible to see them swimming around and coming up to the surface at times. They enjoy light so we have put them in front of the window in the middle of the day and we oxygenate the tank by squeezing air into it through a pipette.

As they are so tiny we only need to feed them once every few days, but we will keep checking in on them and providing them with light and oxygen
