small (2 oz sauce cups) containers - and that I've had most success with
'dry incubating' [putting eggs on top of freshly boiled-cooled wet peat
moss, then removing most of the moisture before incubating in the dark].
There are a few species who I have not been able to 'dry incubate' (F.
chrysoteus - very large eggs, for example). But my major problem is
My objection to the multi-compartment method is that I suspect that
there are times when one or two compartments needs good cleaning out,
but that cannot be done because the rest are filled.
If I do water incubate, I use very fresh tap water that I just
dechlorinate and add acriflavine solution, leaving it in and sealing the
egg in container. When I've had one egg hatch with other eggs not yet
hatched, I have a problem removing the fry without prematurely 'popping'
the eggs, so I try to place eggs of same development together or
Uh, in fact, I've had so much success these past few months that I do
