Sure. The advantage the peat gets you, is it enables you to collect a lot of eggs, pick out the bad ones, then put all the good ones in water and have them hatch out around the same time. For fish that are stingy with eggs, its what I used to do - especially for OGO 80/24 and 78/18 (now *there's* a fish I'd pay $$ for to have again.) Got a few eggs a day, for a week or so, put on peat, after another week, picked the remaining good eggs from the peat and hatched in water all around the same time, so as to avoid uneven fry growth (and bigger fry predating the smaller ones.)
