Thanks for the prompt reply!!!

how can you decide when to hatch them? temperature? How are you preventing fungus in your little jars?

I am bidding on some 30 egg lots from the links you sent on the CAS email list / Some guy in Surrey BC.. Any idea on hatch success how many fish I might get from 30 eggs?

best of luck with your hatch.

Well... remember how Meghan said it was VERY IMPORTANT in her presentation to be prepared when moving?

The truck they had was... a little small. But we made alot fit... just took a hammer here and there to some boxes to compact them.

Hope they didn't have any problems at the border... or cats flying through the front windshield!

On a different note, when I got home after Toirtis dropped me off, my large female Ameca had popped 20 babies out of her. Time to start selling these things off on a regular basis, now that they're breeding in more prodigous numbers as there are two other females close to popping as well.

Just decide whenever I am ready and feel like it.

temperature?
The eggs are currently hanging out at a 'wamr room temp'...probably about 20ºC.

Quite easily....the peat that they are in is basically dry....some humidity is OK, but you don't want too much, or you affect the eggs.

Depends on how he selects his eggs...he is likely hand-picking, and one assumes he is choosing apparently fertile eggs, so 50%-90% is not an unreasonable expectation....so 15-25 fry, I am sure.

Thanks...and to you with yours. I am excited to see a new group of killie enthusiasts appearing within the ranks of the CAS. Hopefully I will be able to pick up a few mature fish when I visit the ACE auction in 10 days time.

Well, i crashed on the presentation. Left all my material home. It really sucked. Felt like a fool afterwards

Other then that it was ok ... the prices for some of the mini auction stuff was just insane. (cheap insane)

What was your presentation on?

Guess one of us better bring a roll of loonies to the next meeting so we can give Len a run for his money... That is 3 meetings in a row with low bidding eh?

Two, but this one was particularly disappointing...thanks to it being on the end of a long weekend (first nice one of spring), plus the Queen's visit, plus that May/June meetings are always sparsely attended...everything went at crazy low prices.
