this: take 1 male and 1 or 2 females and place them in a 2 liter soda pop bottle
with the top cut off. Fill with about 5 inches height of water and
place 1 inch of aged, rinsed peat in the bottom of the pop bottle.

enough daphnia as the spawning group will eat or if you do not have any daphnia,
a very small amount of baby brine shrimp. Leave in the bottle for 48 hours
and remove the adults. Rinse the peat in a fine net and after a good
squeeze, break the peat apart gently and see if there are eggs present.
The eggs can be small and translucent. If your adults are old enough to
spawn there should be eggs in the peat. Works every time for
