Those eggs sound like they are infertile to me. You will be better off hatching the eggs in another tank actually with a heavy dose of methylene blue to prevent fungus development.

I'm ready for the pressure.
The drama and the pleasure!
If there is one thing I want to see here, it's HUMOR.
I believe I can fly!
I believe I can touch the sky!
I think about it every night and day!
I stand in awe of my body.

I was always told/read that the eggs were very sensitive and needed to be kept in the same tank to begin with. It was sucessful for me. I suppose there will always be different ways.

The whiteness does seem to me like they just hadn't been fertalised like Lupin suggetsed.
