How to artificially hatch bristlenose eggs?
 
My bristlenose laid eggs under some rocks inside my community tank with angelfishes, therefore, I decided to artificially hatch them inside a different tank. The fries are starting to hatch, but am I supposed to somehow take them out of the egg shell? The reason I'm asking is that one of them died the next day while still inside the shell. Anyone here who artificially hatched bristlenose eggs care to provide some pointers? Thanks!

You should not need to remove the eggs from the fry. Do you have the eggs in an egg tumbler. The fry may have died from lack of oxygen, or just stress.
