Fertilized Eggs Microscope Findings

56 posts in this topic

Not so long ago I've written in my presentation post that my little ranchu laid eggs all around... but unfortunately none was a baby wannabe. However, as many users told me (thank you for your cheering ^^), she spawned again accidentally. By accidentally I mean that she got into a pantyhose/mesh I have with some filter media in, and when I got her out she expeled some eggs. So I was like this: :o .

As I didn't want her to spread them all around and make me pick them out one by one, I've prepared a small bowl with bottled water and handspawned her there gently (she releases all by almost doing nothing). After that of course I took the male and did the same thing. Sincerely I wasn't too excited because the last time nothing happened and I got really down. Nevertheless, this time there was some luck.

Day 0:

Day 1: (eggs under microscope)

As you can see there's a little gf inside with even small eyes, but yet not visible at bare sight.

Here you can see one egg that's empty. Actually I don't know the reason why it's empty, but that's how it looks like.

Here are few more.

This shows how unfertilized eggs are in case someone wondered.

What I did so far has been "culling" those white eggs in case they were to get fungus on. In fact it's really easy to tell which are a yay, and which are nay. This is all for now :D!!

Congrats on the eggs! Those are spectacular photos! I can't stop staring at them. I'm not sure if they'd qualify, but if one of those were to show up in the Goldfish OTW Poll it would have my vote ;)

Do you have photos of the parents so we can imagine what the little guys will look like?

Thank you so much ^^. I didn't know that there was a contest haha however I do this for the users, and in order to kill the curiosity :D. Now I am preparing few pics and videos with blood stream and heart beats.

The main changes I've detected on this second day are:

- bigger bodies (the previous day they occupied 60% of the egg, and now 95%)

- heart beating

- blood stream

-movement inside the egg (reflection)

-bigger eyes

You're welcome ^^. I agree. This stage is comparable to your photo, when you detected the eyes in the egg. They are extremely tiny but soooo cute :teehee
