Re: Re: Prematurely Hatched Australe Frys
Hi! Thanks for sharing your experience and tips on
this issue with me. It only happened to my australe
gold too, no other species. I did change the water
every two days or so, now I'm going to let the water
sit there. I always put in acriflavine in my
I also started to put some eggs in peat to incubate
them. Then I will wet them in 2 weeks time. I don't
know if this will eliminate the prob but it's worth a

I have this problem also, only with orange australe.
No other species.
I have found that it happens more often when you
change the water in
the hatching container. I now put water in a hatching
a half drop of acriflavine and put in about 2
dozen eggs. I don't
change any water in the hatching container nor do I
put in an airstone.
Every few days I will pick up the hatching container
and very gently swirl
the water. This has pretty much eliminated the
problem. I can change
water on the fry as much as I want.
When the fry do hatch prematurely, I just leave them
in the hatching
container and they continue to develop normally. I've
seen some develop
that didn't even look like fish when they hatched,
just a clear ball
with a hint of a tail. Maybe if you put acriflavine in
the water they will
not die even if they hatch prematurely. I use half a
drop in 8 ounces
I hope this helps you.
