If you wanted your eggs to hatch. You can try putting them in a ten gallon or 5 gallon and use a airstone attach to a airpump and let it run to agitate the eggs to keep fungus off the good one. I had 50% hatch rate the last time I tried so its a pretty good and simple way to art hatch them. I have also try putting them in a small container in the same spawn tank without any thing to agitate the water and only had like 1 or 2 fry hatch. So agitate the eggs is the key of artficial hatching.

Sillycone- YUP! I've got plants and there are TONS on mosquito larvae outside in a bucket by my front door. Think they can eat those at such a young age?? o^o

Dramaqueen- Thanks! I hope it works out too!

Sillycone- I've got some plants and the fry (30-40) in a small tupperware thing floating inside a giant storage box. The water is heated to 82F and the top is covered with cling wrap - nice and humid :D. The fry all seem to be doing well! (they're almost a week old ^^)

Thanks Dramaqueen! :D

Do you guys think they would eat really early stages of mosquito larvae? They're are TONS of them in this bucket outside and there are ones that are super tiny- like not even a mm long!
