Re: To dry or not to dry eggs?
I dry all my Aphoysemion and Fundulopanchax eggs. I collect eggs
for one week. Then I store them for two. This means some actually are dry
for 3 weeks. When rehydrated, I usually get all to hatch within a few
hours. This means they are all the same age and are easier to care for.
