    Sadly the eggs aren’t fertile. I’m guessing at least. They got an fungal infestation.

    Are they likely to breed again this year Thomas?

    Don’t think so Matt. Next year after a real overwintering, I hope they will do a better job. This year it is lacking of the males engagement… Wink

    But till know I can find new eggs, yesterday I have seperated two again. Who knows…

    Till now, 11 are hatched. They start feed artemia after a week. Of course I could take many Eggs off the Tank but I’m not sure if this make sense… Lots eggs doesn’t develop but for me it’s enough.

    The first four juveniles entered the water in september, and two weeks ago the last four do it also.
