Pair eating their eggs

Pair eating their eggs

Postby Alexandre » Fri Apr 07, 2017 12:10 pm

Hello, breeders!
I have a pair of picasso percula that eats every single spawn by day four after laying. I have been improving feeding offering
mysis, white worms and home made paste food made of marine goods.
They are fed three to four times a day.
What would be the best way to hatch the eggs artificialy, if possible?
Thank's!

The key point here is wether the eggs are fertile or not :?:

I guess they are. Because they get dark with time.

Thank's !

I guess they are fertile, as they turn dark with time.

Yes,usually fertile eggs darken up after some days,but you should look for eye development to ascertain fertile status.Unfertile eggs sometimes turn whitish.
You could incubate artificially and look for development. :wink:

That' s the point!
I would like to know how to do it properly.
By the way, they have another spawn right now.

Are they laying in some removable substrate?.You have to pull the nest and place it in another tank with an airstone moving the eggs.

Yes, they lay on clay pots.
Only an air stone with the eggs would work?
From day 3 ?
No need to add any medication?

Thank's very much, Luis!

You can add antibiotics,but at this time,your goal is just to find out if the eggs are fertile,as evidenced by eye development.You can also check some eggs under the scope if you feel in the research mood :D
If your fish are eating fertile eggs,AI can solve the problem. :wink:
