You can use some meth blue to keep fungus away :)

I would use meth blue for higher egg concentrations because eggs can get stuck to one another, but yours are nice and spread out so any bad eggs will be easy to spot and remove. I hope they all hatch! As long as they aren't white by now they're likely nice and fertilized.

Squee!!!! Their tiny breaths though and giant eyes!!! :heart :heart :heart

So I'm looking to plan the next steps... I have 4 one liter bottles that I'm going to be turning into BBS hatcheries. I also have flexible air tubing and an air pump. I've got ridged air tubing that should be here Friday or Saturday which my LPS ordered special for me. I also grabbed some Hikari First Bites, BBS eggs, a turkey baster, and a feeder ring to make things easier in the future :)

My biggest thing I need help on is the sponge filter. I haven't done much looking into it yet but tips are very welcome!!

When my guys spawned, I counted about 50 eggs, then when they started hatching I thought they had stopped at about 30...the next day I counted about 80...when I eventually got to count all the babies there was over 200! :thud:
