    move the eggs it’s alot easier Richy, put them in any container like a margerine tub and some oak leaves if you have them, just shove an airline in with a clamp on you dont need it bubbling awat-y just so many per minute.
    if they’re fertile they should be hatching in around 3-4 days

    looking at the 2 Adolphi’s there is a big difference in shape/girth so maybe I have a pair? There’s 10 eggs that I know of. I have a spare tank running with a sponge filter on but it has 5 Hengeli in it so i’ll have to move them first.
    b*gg*r, where to put the hengeli.
    Eggs have only appeared within the last hours ish, is it possible they’ll be fertile or have a chance to be by now?

    usually you cantell if they’re infrtile mate, they have a white spot inside the egg, fertile are usually fairly clear, if i can find a pic of eggs i’ll bang it up in the next few minutes bud, hope theyre fertile for you.
    you can remove the eggs now bud, use your finger they’re pretty adhesive if you’ve got a show tank you can stick the eggs in the sides then you can see the developement within the egg.

    Yeah and don’t be too afraid of breaking them as they’re quite tough mate. Use your finger to kind of roll them off the glass.

    Edit – busy day in your tanks!

    It’s hard to tell as the white lights have gone off and just blue on now.

    have a look at this pic Richy, you can see most of the eggs are fertile but there are the odd ones amongst them that are white.

    the eggs were from C89’s

    they look yellowish here or is that tannings in the water? Well I moved 7 over but can’t see anymore as all the lights on the tank are off now.
    I have a feeling I probably moved them too early!
    Mine were dotted about in very small amounts but I have read that some cories scatter a few slowley and some just blast bunches out. Mine were mainly opaque/white not yellow like the photo looks to me here.
    I think my friends Julii only scattered a few randomly too but their Albino’s dumped large clusters.

    yeah there was a lot of tannins in the water bud, adolfoi only lay single eggs and not many up to 20 is a good number but normally 10-12 eggs is the norm.
    if the eggs were laid around an hour to 2 hours ago they would be fine to move as the outer caseing has had time to harden off.
