    Well, sadly for some odd reason, my GBB that was sitting on her sac, decided to try and make a meal out of it...
    Good news is, is that I caught her just in time. I was walking to the shower and something told me to check the Ts, so i did and saw her with a fang rght through it and trying to position the other fang into it, scratching the side of the sac. I grabbed the tweezers and got it out quick. Here are the results:
    6 broken eggs
    And a crap load of perfect ones that will be ewls in a few days. :D

    It was just in time! Well if you do get impatient and pull a sac, you will need an artificial incubator, that will rotate the sac slowly on a daily basis. If it was me in your shoes, find a way to sit on your hands and leave it with her for at least 20 days.

    Update this morning on the GBB's

    Phones showing fuzzy img xc is that an ewl eating an egg?

    Yep, but no leaking egg beside it. I had to crop that photo a little bit as I only have a, well you know camera, lol. Its two ewls eating two eggs.
    I saw that, flipped out, and separated every single ewl to make sure they weren't eating each other. Upon doing so, I noticed that the ewls would not attack other ewls, or eggs about to become ewls. They only started eating the ones that looked like they weren't developing, which were these two eggs, and one other. I found it pretty interesting.

    Based on how it looked, one fang inside the sac, the other fang positioning to go into the sac as well. There was a huge hole in the sac and wasn't going to chance it staying with her because of it.

    ---------- Post added 04-23-2015 at 01:27 PM ----------

    I'd be more than willing to separate them as well. I just got back to work and saw them about 30 minutes ago, the eggs they were sucking on have been gone for a while from what it looks like, and everyone else is fine. Plus there are around 180 of them, and I don't have the room to individually separate and incubate.

    I think those are the same as "Ramekins" right? I have a bunch of those, but shredding the coffee filters to fit each and every ramekin, will be a hassle. I will keep a close eye on them though. What the plan is, is when they all hit 1i or 2i, they will be transferred into those individual ramekins anyways.
