Re: [Killietalk] Shipping eggs
I have sent K. marmoratus eggs to Israel, Japan, Argentina, UK and all
over USA... always in water and no antifungal agent. In my case the
trick is to ship them very early after collecting them, otherwise they
hatch in transit which has happened to me too. I've read at
elkiliclub.org about shipping eggs between two makeup remover pads. Need
to try that in the future. I tend to agree about the buying of fish
instead of eggs... but many times the fellows in Europe and South
America have very interesting species which many times they are willing
to trade or sell.
"Shipping in water results in hatched, dead fry."
Not always. I don't order eggs often, but I recall a shipment of 2 species
of Epi. eggs from Mogens Juhl a decade ago. They came from Denmark and when
they arrived there was so much acriflavine/methylene blue in the water (they
were in water, in small vials) that the eggs were colored bright blue/green
themselves. I thought they'd never hatch. But darn if they didn't. 100%
