So i came home today. The tank looked like some maniac with an egg-gun had sprayed everything!

Now...i know there's some way of telling which eggs have been fertilised or not?

You'll have to excuse me...i'm still grinning like an idiot.

And yes, eggs, plants etc moved to an incubation tank.

I edited your title.

I've read here that the fertilized ones will be relatively clear and the unfertilized ones are whitish and you need to remove those ones before they get fungus.

But I don't have eggs yet so what do I know? :rolleyes:

And I'm not sure if it takes the unfertilized ones a while to change to cloudy or what.

Good Luck!

Ive heard that as soon as they turn white to get them out QUICKLY as they will get fungus that will affect your good eggs as well.

Whoa. That *was* fast! I removed the hazy/white-looking eggs and the next day (re - today) the amber coloured ones hatched!

Well...i should say 'hatching'.

I'm a little worried as to how i'm going to feed them. With luck i'll be visiting the aquarium tomorrow so as to start getting some baby brine shrimp and liquifry.

I don't think i have many fry...8 at the most. Does anyone know, or can anyone estimate, how many would be expected to make it from this batch?

Thanks for all your support!

For the first 3-4 days, the fry will feed off the eggs sacs on their bellies so no extra food is necessary.

Once the fry become free swimming, you can start feeding the BBS and liquifry :D

I've heard that ghost shrimp help with cleaning around small fry.
