Dear Dr Cooper,
Sorry if I don't comprehend it all, but why would it be so? Don't eggs
begin some sort of embroyl development even while they're, for lack of a
better word, embedded in submerged peat?
Going by what you've said, would _intentionally_ leaving these submersed
eggs (for months) be a way to delay/extend hatching time? Won't the
eggs develope fungus?
