Re: [Killietalk] Water incubation egg storage
I bought small containers (eg. the dark blue color of diameter 6.3 inch round bowl) from Dollar store. It cost $1 for three bowls. I put all the eggs I collected in the bowl -- each bowl could hold at least 40 eggs. Then I place these bowls in a dark area with the top cover up with card-board etc.. I use direct tap water (eg. with chlorine) to incubate the eggs in the bowl. Change water everyday and remove any fungus eggs if found daily. During the daily water changes, I inspect the eggs to see if the eggs are eye-up. If so, I take those eye-up eggs and incubate it with de-chlorine water in another separate container (eg. I have alot of beanie baby container and so I use them to incubate the eye-up eggs with a few java moss in it). I also change the de-chlorine water everyday on this beanie container. I have a very high yield of hatching using chlorine water (eg. thanks to Lee Harper on this tip).
