Unfortunatly my first eggs all went bad. I have more now and have about 3 weeks to wait as I put them on peat moss this time to prevent fungus. I changed the conditions by adding peat moss to the tank and they layed eggs like mad. I got about 27 in a bag of peat. So now we will wait and see if I can get them to hatch. I am now selling/trading eggs on the petfish trading board. So anyone who wants eggs let me know. If even most of the eggs hatch and grow to adults I will need to sell them.
