We would appreciate updates from you if possible ashwin. People would love to hear about the habitat and if you are lucky enough to get the canarensis and if you've spawned them.

After a very long wait, I have finally got my hands on a dozen of these fellows. Size is slightly less then an inch.
An updated picture of my setup, without flash and a rare shot that managed to capture all 12 pieces.

Here's a video of them feasting on frozen daphnia. They are almost an inch now.
