So a few hours later, in the morning, I see that Herbert has grown and now has friends...

The airlock now has a little bit of activity going on and starting to see some changes happening as you can see in the pictures.

It really does look like a wad of snot.... but really, even if 'Herbert' is reproducing, no worries. It's probably coagulated proteins. Should settle out.

So an update on Herbert... He has grown sufficiently and is much more... Interesting looking? You decide. Below are a few pics.
