The eggs normally hatch just after lights out if I'm not wrong. You got to wait till they are free swimming before they are able to start feeding. Not sure how long that would take but my guess is anywhere from 24-48 hours. You will need ss-strain rotifers to feed the fry initially. After the rotifers, the feeding of Artemia nauplii should be rather straightfoward. The main thing is to maintain high water quality and use gentle water aeration (limit to only few bubbles per sec). Best if you can design a simple overflow system. Make sure the water surface is not overly turbulent or oily or covered with dirt as the fry will need to break the surface to inflate their swim bladders later on. Normally occurs after lights out.

when they are a pair , they will swim together and the bigger one is the female , smaller one male. sometimes, the female will bite the male one to 'henpeck' him.

careful when putting your hand into the tank to move the eggs, cos mummy will bite.

Flowrate depends on alot of factors like culture vessel size, age of larvae and overflow area. You should increase the overflow area such that larvae do not get sucked to the overflow. Easily achieved using a banjo sieve.

tis one 2nd labour but e mama sumtimes still quite slack on taking care of e eggs

POOR male... :o

That's very normal behaviour...the male tends to the eggs whilst the female protects the territory. She will only really begin to help about the day of hatch, which is generally around day 7 or 8 at our temps.

Easier to take the nest out to hatch...if not, then have fun trying to catch them out :P

How many more days? I might try to raise them through the initial stage for you. No promises though..pm me to arrange. ;)

You can try, but looking at the number of eggs that you have now, not worth risking them out....I would propose you forgo this batch and feed the pair with better food. My proposal is base on the following:

- Better food = better eggs and better survival rate of fries

- If you shift them now, the pair might not want to lay eggs anymore....do some search in the net and you will see that sometimes when the environment changes, the pair will take a long while to acclimatise or might not lay anymore....which happened to mine.

- they will lay eggs once every 2-3 weeks if undusturbed, so plenty of chance.

Anyway, if you are successful, do let us know the updates.

P.S. when the eggs turn silverish, it is time, should be soon this two days in your case.

Good luck!
