| || | I'm getting some fish eggs in the mail, what's the best way to hatch them? Advice?
I've been breeding live bearers for years but this will be my first experience with egg layers. I ordered some rainbow fish off aquabid.com and the seller is also giving me a mop with a bunch of eggs on it. How do I raise the eggs that are on the mop? I have a breeding net and so I was thinking about just putting the mop with the eggs in a breeding net in my big tank and then remove the fry as they hatch and put them into a tank I have just for raising fry. Also, I heard about another method of getting a little air tight container and putting the eggs with totally clean, treated water in there and then floating the container in my big tank until the eggs hatch, changing the water with fresh treated water every day... what would be the best way to do this? Any advice or ideas on this would be great! Thanks
Oh yeah - I forgot to mention, the reason I wasn't planning on just putting the mop directly into my fry tank is because there are some snails in there and I was afraid they may eat the eggs
