One other option I'm considering is adding an airstone to the egg catcher box.

Eric what does that pot sit on in your tank any pics of the set up.bekateen wrote: ↑01 Jun 2023, 20:33 ADMIN note: Since this post and the previous five posts are about the Microglanis aff. poecilus eggs (not Amblydoras eggs), I'm moving these posts to the Microglanis aff. poecilus spawning thread.
I understand. I'm already using the needlepoint canvas on the egg catcher, but you're right that the fish can swim anywhere in the 10-gallon tank. The inverted pot with the synodontis-style setup sits atop the egg catcher they're already spawning over, so the pot itself should act as a water barrier to concentrate sperm to fertilize eggs at least as well as the flow-through canvas (which wouldn't restrict water flow or sperm dispersion).sturiosoma wrote: ↑01 Jun 2023, 19:28Yes but I believe you will have success if you can get them to spawn in the syno breeder you added to their tank, and maybe even a tank divider to lessen the available space, I have the plastic needlepoint canvas and suction cup dividers, I will post pics.
https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0824 ... psc=1,this plastic can be had in different widths, I guess what I'm trying to say is that with you only having 3 fish and one of which is a male and they are small fish, me personally I would put a divider in the tank and cramp their style, just my thoughts.
SPAWN #6: I arrived at work today to find 4 eggs in the egg catcher under the Synodontis pot, but the eggs weren't directly beneath the pot... I don't know if these eggs were released inside or outside of the pot but they did fall into the egg catcher.
I don't have rainwater, but I do have RO water. I've moved these four eggs into one of the FLUVAL breeder boxes with an airstone (not bubble-through flow) and I filled the box with RO water, not tank water. Let's see what happens.
If this fails, the other thing I'm contemplating to employ is an actual egg tumbler. I have one of the Cobalt style egg tumblers.
Below is one of the pots I made using the concept for Synodontis but adding a mop inside. I call it "mop-in-a-pot."
I'll take a pic tomorrow when I return to work.
Just checked this afternoon. No fry yet.
