    If you copy the 4th link below the pics (from photobucket) and paste it into the body of your text it will direct link the photo's to your post. Looks like they are growing very well and developing slowly but surely. They might make you wait for it, but waiting can be very rewarding sometimes

    Wow, they're looking good! Very interesting to see the sumi under their skin and waiting for it to come out. Sure is nice motoguro on the one.
