Very interesting! Thanks for the photo. It helps me understand much better!aquaholic wrote: ↑07 Apr 2023, 11:20 Well done!
I've noticed I get a better egg hatch rate when eggs are prevented from touching each other.
I use the fine mesh under egg crate concept with one individual egg in each compartment, stacked several layers high with gentle down flow. Boost the dissolved oxygen with an airstone in a corner, raise temperate for faster hatch and can use UV if fungus becomes a concern. For the screen, I use a fiberglass midge mesh product. Superglue to fasten.
Alternatively another setup suggestion:
I use open top plastic drinking cups with an electronic soldier iron to create small holes around the sides, 3 cm off the bottom so you can pick up a cup without it completely draining out. These are useful for individual hatching and then raising fish that would normally eat each other. It's easy to feed through the open top and you can buy a thousand cups relatively cheaply that neatly stack when not used. The plastic tote trays can stack vertically as well.
