Fertilized Eggs Microscope Findings

Not so long ago I've written in my presentation post that my little ranchu laid eggs all around... but unfortunately none was a baby wannabe. However, as many users told me (thank you for your cheering ^^), she spawned again accidentally. By accidentally I mean that she got into a pantyhose/mesh I have with some filter media in, and when I got her out she expeled some eggs. So I was like this: :o .

As I didn't want her to spread them all around and make me pick them out one by one, I've prepared a small bowl with bottled water and handspawned her there gently (she releases all by almost doing nothing). After that of course I took the male and did the same thing. Sincerely I wasn't too excited because the last time nothing happened and I got really down. Nevertheless, this time there was some luck.

Day 0:

Day 1: (eggs under microscope)

As you can see there's a little gf inside with even small eyes, but yet not visible at bare sight.

Here you can see one egg that's empty. Actually I don't know the reason why it's empty, but that's how it looks like.

Here are few more.

This shows how unfertilized eggs are in case someone wondered.

What I did so far has been "culling" those white eggs in case they were to get fungus on. In fact it's really easy to tell which are a yay, and which are nay. This is all for now :D!!

Congrats on the eggs! Those are spectacular photos! I can't stop staring at them. I'm not sure if they'd qualify, but if one of those were to show up in the Goldfish OTW Poll it would have my vote ;)

Do you have photos of the parents so we can imagine what the little guys will look like?

Thank you so much ^^. I didn't know that there was a contest haha however I do this for the users, and in order to kill the curiosity :D. Now I am preparing few pics and videos with blood stream and heart beats.

The main changes I've detected on this second day are:

- bigger bodies (the previous day they occupied 60% of the egg, and now 95%)

- heart beating

- blood stream

-movement inside the egg (reflection)

-bigger eyes

That video is amazing :o and the difference between day 1 and 2 is quite extraordinary. Thanks for sharing :D

You're welcome ^^. I agree. This stage is comparable to your photo, when you detected the eyes in the egg. They are extremely tiny but soooo cute :teehee
