Pretty cool to have an egg, hope to see him do well in all the stages, then become a beautiful active little guy.

Thank you. I'm hoping too. It looks like the yolk is pretty well gone as it's just the cord left. The egg still looks pretty solid though. Hoping he'll get out of it soon.

Patience grasshopper. Looking at your latest pic, it's gonna be soon. With the direction his head is facing I would flip the egg over so when he comes out he's head down

Lol.. I'm working on it. Patience is not one of my virtues though. I'll flip over the egg tomorrow and hope for the best.

Yep, you called it. Thank you for the advice. I wasn't home when it happened unfortunately. Hopefully he'll be eating in a few days. How long should I wait until I try?

New 300 gallon tank

I'd try tomorrow. Mine ate on day 2. I used a shrimp skewer to dangle a piece of shrimp in front of him. Squeeze the shrimp over the water getting the scent in the water. He'll "wake up" and start moving......then put it in front of him. I would get him used to eating like this so he doesn't mistake a tank mate for lunch
