an unexpected hatching

Posted on September 10, 2012 at 9:40 PM

I decided that Monday was too early. I waited until Tuesday to move the pipe containing the eggs to the clean, bleach sterilized black round tub. I fastened the pipe so that an airstone would bring bubbles and clean water through the pipe, jostling the eggs. I waited. No hatch. The next day the eggs still looked good, no fungus, so I waited some more. No hatch. By 7am Thursday morning, when I still didn't see larvae in the tub, I was ready to give up, even though the eggs still looked good. I thought they should have hatched by now. I planned to clean the tub that evening. I went back to feed some other fish at 8am, glanced at the tub, and sure enough, there was a cloud of larvae darting around in the clean water! Here's what they looked like:
