    This little guy hatched in the last few hours. I lifted up Peach his mother and saw him. Im really concerned. What is going on at his butt? And he isn't moving at all, I don't even know if he is alive :3 Thanks for any and all answers!

    There is no image. He might have pasty butt.

    How come you can't tell if he is alive? Does he seem to breath?

    I would try to clean it, dry it.. I don't know if it is the right way to go, but it is what I would do!

    I didn't notice him moving at all, and I didn't want to touch him either to find out cause of bacteria transmission and all that...

    I looked at him again and he isn't moving at all, it looks like that thing is some undigested yolk, and I am pretty sure he's dead

    Sorry but he does not look good at all. I think he will die if he already hasn't.[​IMG]

    Looks like the yolk was not fully absorbed, which unfortunately means he will die. I am sorry :(
