Guppysnail Posted December 14, 2022 Share Posted December 14, 2022 (edited) Ok this is about the 5th batch of eggs from different pairs. The other for whatever reason lay right on the gravel so I can’t collect easily. They ignore all the wonderful river rocks I put in secluded areas they like to flirt in 🤨 These two have been at this the better part of 45 minutes. On the UV light 😖 I was told my hard water high tea from the tap will not allow these eggs to hatch by someone in my fish club. @Fish Folk is this true? They said I needed to use RO water. I don’t have any RO and I’m not running to the store this late at night or tomorrow during an ice storm. Water chemistry folks help @modified lung I have distilled water. I know the two different methods RO and distilling create the water but no clue if they are fundamentally different as end products. To my non science brain I think they should both be pure right??? If I do get these to hatch how do I transition to regular water and how long can they survive without any minerals and such. The boy is diligently going behind the girl after every pass she makes and does his scoot and wiggle so I’m hoping they are fertile. This is a small pair not the larger original ones. Thanks folks for sharing your knowledge and input! Edited December 14, 2022 by Guppysnail 1 Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
