Well it might have been 24 hours but they might hatch late because of temperature. So just be patient and everything will come to you:)!!

Good luck. also i bred ,y VT's in no heated water at all and its october and sort of cold in NY and my 5 week fry are still living. Its weird because i do regret not using a heater. Please!! please!! dont do what i did! i did it out of frustration and stupidity!

they are healthy and swimming but i dont want anyone else to do the mistake i am making because i might be paying for what im doing as i speak. sorry everyone for my ignorance and breed the right way if you even are going to breed. Thank you and good luck to you!

I m in Florida, but my breeding tank is inside so the a/c makes it cold. I have my heater at about 82-83.

I think 82-83 is a good temperature for breeding.

It really depends. VTs will breed at any temp above 70 and the fry will be fine in cooler water. BUT others like warmer water. I breed from 78-88*....it just depends.

Well, My poor BB King didnt make it. I put him in a separate bowl and treated him with melafix. he was eating fine and seemed active, but when i ccame home from work.. he was not alive.......broke my heart.... he was in bad shape.. I have learned to NEVER put a small male with a larger female, and especially, dont leave them together overnight when you can't monitor them.
