Question corydora eggs

okay so 2 days ago, my peppered corys spawned , i got as many eggs into a small betta tank as i could see, i put a bubbler in and methylene blue in the little tank. the eggs have no fungus on them, but almost every one of them have a small white dot on the inside . does this mean theyre developing orrrr are they duds?

-thanks!

The eggs turn almost completely white after a day or two if they have not been fertilized. Also, the healthy eggs will darken as they age. After a few days it should be obvious which are good and which are bad.

The eggs should have hatched or will hatch in the next day (5 to 6 days) make sure you do water changes prior to hatching to remove thee methylene blue as it can kill the newborn catfish.

Congrats!
