Default Mudpuppy Data

I'm writing down a summary of my mudpuppies success so far. Thought you guys might be interested in a documented article from hatching to adult hood. This is a rough copy. Tell me what you guys think?

Canada, ONT
Wellers Bay
http://i1124.photobucket.com/albums/l570/NannersBanana/km.jpg
Late July-Early August
3 eggs collected
http://youtu.be/HEnUGCHoehI
Set eggs in Small clear plastic container with holes in lid 3 cm hight, 4 cm width
one hatched on site
2 hatched 3 weeks later
Larvae where placed in a Small plastic critter cage/cricket keeper like container with a bubble wand stone. Water was 4 cm high due to food intake. Turned off bubble stone 'cuz they where getting air pockets in the chest area making them surface bound.
Fry where fed mini powder fish fry food twice a day
http://i1124.photobucket.com/albums/l570/NannersBanana/P33086.jpg
Water was changed once daily
Morphed to juvie stage in 1 month and 2 weeks after hatching.
Morphed juveniles where fed frozen bloodworms once a day or everyother day. Raised the water hight to 10 cm to encourage hunting instincts and to get their legs moving.

water was changed every other day
2 premature deaths:1 still surviving

Date for Water Quality Test:07/02/2012 Juvie is a little over the size of a toonie at this point.

In the video that person totally vandalized the nest and scared away the guardian mother. Sorry but I didn't enjoy the video.
