[Killietalk] Re: Eggs on Peat, now fungus
It could be that some people use the peat to help prevent good eggs from
getting fungus. I have even had to do this on some Aphyosemion eggs that
were giving me problems.
One question to the group, Do you have better success with preventing fungus
if you keep the eggs in the dark? I have heard this before, but in my
experience I find no difference between otherwise identical petri dishes of
eggs kept dark and ones in the light.

Thanks to all for the info . It looks like I will be reverting to my
original incubation method with water. I had heard many people mention
that they incubate their semi-annual killlies such as the gardneri
species on damp peat and seem to have had success doing that. Even was a
topic of discussion at one of the talks at the past Michiana show. I
thought I would give it a try. I can see no advantage to it and it
appears to be much more drawn out than the water incubation method
unless I am doing something wrong.
