Re: [Killietalk] golden killie eggs
Do you have really hard water?
I'm kind of grasping here, but could excessive water hardness cause the shells to be tougher?
Anyone else know about this?
They are usually very easy to breed. If you are seeing them grow eyes they are definately alive.Drummond HowardGaithersburg, Maryland> Date: Fri, 11 Jul 2008 10:51:40 -0700> From: lasseter1113 at yahoo_com> To: killietalk at aka_org> Subject: Re: [Killietalk] golden killie eggs> > Are you talking about Aplocheilus lineatus ( golden wonders )? If so that is the first killifish I ever spawned and I just simply set the eggs in a small cup with about an inch of water from the breeding tank. I didn't add any kind of chemicals to the water and I had a very successful hatch rate. Another suggestion would be to set up another small tank. Then take the spawning mop and set it down into the new tank. The last suggestion I have is to purchase some acriflavine. This stuff works wonders with some of the non-annual killifish eggs. That is about all the advice I can give. I haven't been doing this nowhere near as long as some of these guys and gals on here so you might want to take some more advice from them. I have met a whole lot of very nice people through kiillietalk. I honestly don't know what I would do sometimes if I didn't have this discussion list to fall back on. > Good Luck,> Gary L> > > ----- Original Message ----> From: sherman ketchum <paintballer12447 at hotmail_com>> To: killietalk at aka_org> Sent: Friday, July 11, 2008 12:28:09 PM> Subject: [Killietalk] golden killie eggs> > > sherman ketchum> actually the female is very large,i would say fully grown,she is even bigger than the male but most of the eggs you can see them moving inside but they never make it to the final stage,i tried peat incubation water incubation and adding formalin and malachite green in very light doses but still no go?i fed her bloodworms,brine shrimp,and blackworms.i dont know what to do.any suggestions?> _________________________________________________________________> It’s a talkathon – but it’s not just talk.> http://www.imtalkathon.com/?source=EML_WLH_Talkathon_JustTalk> Join the AKA at http://www.aka.org/aka/modules/content/index.php?id=9.> Archives are at http://fins.actwin.com/killietalk/> Modify your subscription at http://www.actwin.com/mailman/listinfo.cgi/killietalk> > > > > Join the AKA at http://www.aka.org/aka/modules/content/index.php?id=9.> Archives are at http://fins.actwin.com/killietalk/> Modify your subscription at http://www.actwin.com/mailman/listinfo.cgi/killietalk
