Re: [Killietalk] Eggs from thailand
My experience with known reliable shippers of South American annual killifish
eggs is that the expected hatching time is usually considerably accelerated
by the shipping process. For example eggs that are supposed to hatch in 3
months typically are ready to hatch in two months and long dead at three months.
The only way to be sure is to examine the eggs under a microscope or magnifier.
If they look ready to hatch, immerse them. If they don't hatch within 24 hours
redry them for no more than a week and try again. Nothobranchius may tolerate
a delayed hatch according to reports. I have no experience with them.
Austrolebias and Simpsonichthys have a fairly narrow window of opportunity if they go
too long they may hatch and be belly sliders. Too short and no harm, no foul,
but don't wait too long to try again. In all cases, a look at the eggs is
