Funny things happening with my incubating A. australe eggs
After an initial successful harvest of eggs from a couple of pairs of Aphy.
australe orange, some really odd things have been happening during the
incubation. I'd welcome any comments from those on the list-
1) some of the eggs have eyed-up nicely, then a "partial" hatch seems to
i.e. tails appear poking through the "shell" with the rest of the
2) some of the eggs begin to show some embryonic growth, then the egg swells
too 2-3x the size of the other eggs.
3) all the eggs made it 3-plus days, then some began to fungus. I'd been
impression that if they're going to fungus, they usually do so within
the first 1-2
Needless to say, what I thought was going to be a 10-15 fry harvest, if I'm
lucky I'll get 3-5 instead (one fry is hatched and free swimming).
Any and all thoughts are welcome!!!!!
