Looks like they're wrapping in earnest now.

They started wrapping when I left the house for a job interview and were done when I got home. There's a MILLION eggs in there. @_@

She also looks seriously deflated. She was like a bubble goldfish before but now she's slimmed down to a normal size. Omg.

Daddy is tending them nicely but mom is hiding where I can't get her without disturbing the nest so I'm waiting for her to come out.

This is a portion of the nest, best photo I could get. The nest continues on and covers the underside of the IAL in the photo, about half the size of a full sized leaf. As far as I can tell, the underside of the IAL is as packed with eggs as this shot.

She seriously looks like a deflated balloon.

Dad is working CRAZY hard. He's shuffling around under there like he's got a fire under his tail.

Really rough estimate of eggs is around 400 range.
