Wright, thanks for the tip. Regardless, I'm gonna wait out the
incubation date stated on the bag which is another 3 weeks. I'll let
you know how the wetting turns out.

Yeah, I thought so too. Our warm weather here throws havoc on the
incubation tables, often accelerating it by as much as 2 months. This
is a shared observation amongst local killie keepers who maintain nothos

Mark, the pics were 'accidental' in the sense that I wasn't suppose to

wanted to get closer macros than what my toy camera allows.

Yes, it was fun for me... enlightening as well, since I've never seen
eggs in detail. IIRC, Intel has one of those microscope thingie that
connects via USB to your PC. I did a run through ePay...
Be careful... you can lose your pants shopping there... ;o)

Hiya Al, Angelfire returns this message when you submit an incomplete

I look forward to your comments.
PS: Does anyone know how I can 'shorten' the URL? I recall there was a
site that could do it but can't remember which one.
