Re: [Killietalk] do watched eggs ever hatch?
Hate to rain on your parade, but they are not likely to hatch, right
now. You might try redrying and looking for eggs. See if they have a
fully-developed gold ring around the black iris of their eyes. If so,
try agin soon (week or two). Otherwise, wait for the developed eyes and
try again, later.
I usually expect to see the first babies making a try for the surface in
a quarter to a half an hour. I use pretty cold, low-tds water. Usually
they are all hatched that are going to hatch by the next morning.

I just setup a small hatching tank for my notho eggs, and last night
added 2 inches of water, and my aged peat&eggs. This a.m. I saw
plenty of wiggling microworms, but nothing moving like a tiny fish.
How long after wetting might I expect to wait before seeing fry,
assuming they were appropriately developed and conditions were
favorable for their emergence?
Just getting a bit anxious, since these are the first killie eggs
