He looks like he's blowing bubbles and putting them back up.

Hey nothing wrong with 50 man. In this water that is good. Plus you wont need to cull much only for deforms ect. You will be fine get 2 containers of bbs going 24 hrs apart. I should be able to drop off mw and java but we will see. Should be swimming 24-48 hrs or so but others could take longer.

So for bbs and time I'm looking pretty good for skipping steps and making mistakes? I hope we will be able to meet soon. I really apprixiate the help. 50 was just a quick guess. It's hard to see the nest in the cup but I can see about 25 that are falling and swimming vertically while dad helps them, plus I'm guess about another 25 are still suspended in the nest or haven't fully hatched. Could you help me with the bbs though.

I'm using a 600ml bottle. And filled it up 3/4 with distilled water. Then I added about 1ish table spoons (plastic spoon for eating) of AQ salt. Then 30 mins later I added a small amount of bs eggs. I will add more after. I just wanted to make sure I did it right be fore wasting a whole bunch of brine shrimp.

I was kinda hoping for more like 100 that way since I am a rookie I know I will make some slip ups and some will die. Hopefully this spawn goes successfull. When should I turn the sponge filter up higher and when do I add a little bit of new water?

I use tap water and add 4 tsp AQ salt in a 1l jar with a hole drilled in lid for airline hose. It takes more than average salt here with the tap params. I never used distilled so not sure. Best to do nothing at this point seriously. After they get swimming for a bit you can add little food and equal temp water very but slowly. I would turn the filter off for a few days.

Ok I added another spoon of AQ salt. I will set up another tonight cause I'm guessing this one may or may not work. I will use the 1l jar 3/4 fill with tap water and add 4 spoon of AQ salt. How many eggs do you use? 1 spoon full?
