Re: [Killietalk] A newbie with questions, and a little about
I would add to Joe's remarks that to wait only 12 hours before rebagging is
way too quick. I just had a batch from Argentina that when I started to
rebag on the third day, I noticed one lonely fry. I then waited and within
4 or 5 hours, I got more than a dozen more hatch out. My advice - don't be
in such a hurry to rebag.

If you find yourself in a hole, the first thing to do is stop diggin'.
