Most Aphyosemions I water incubate the eggs. I pick eggs once a week
and place them into a small container of fresh water and wait. If you
have a pair of fish that puts out alot of eggs each week and you don't
want different sizes of fry all over the place, you can pick the eggs
and put them on top of damp peat. Store the peat away for the correct
amount of time and then flood the container with the peat and eggs.
This way all the eggs hatch at the same time and you get fry all the
same age. Saves on all the small containers of different age fry.
This is great for Blue Gularis, different Fundulopanchax Gardneri's and
Aphyosemion Australe, as these fish put out alot of eggs each week.
Experiment and see what works best for you. Everyone does it
differently. All depends on what you prefer. Good luck with your
