Yummy, an egg yolk and tank water cocktail. :P And who doesn't like vinegar eels or grindal worms?
I will allow everyone to laugh at me now! I am being such a girl, but the thought of ground up worms and the like is grossing me out. Yes, I have a dog, a cat, an aquarium, and kids! (& lets not forget a husband too) Yes, I performed surgery on a goldfish (long story, find the thread if you want to know more), and yes I removed fish eggs with my bare hands, but YES this is grossing me out! And no, I could never watch "Fear Factor".
I was planning on putting the fry inside a hanging plastic breeder once they hatch. This happened so quick, that the tank I have the eggs in just wasn't ready for them. I don't feel it's an ideal spot for them and think they are better off in a wonderfully clean, perfectly maintained tank.
Any tips on how to remove the eggs if they get fungus but are attached to other eggs? 10 are on a plant so that is easy to do, but the other 8-10 are on substrate that I gently picked out by hand and many look attached.
It's been about 35 hours or so and a few of the eggs have started to turn tan in color, and if I stare long and hard with the light in I can see actual movement inside 2 of them. It's like a slow and slight rolling from side to side within the egg, nothing crazy or obvious.
