Oranda Eggs!!!

As I mentioned in the Ich thread, Whitey has been popping eggs out, I said I wasn't going to breed them, but just for curiosity's sake, I've put a few into a small tub (usually used for carrying rodents, small amphibians or housing a Betta according to the label (Not recommended, it's too small!!!)), so, we'll just have to wait and see if they hatch or not...

Thanks, the tank's staying up at 86f cos of the ich problem (although thinking about it, it could have been breeding spots as the other fish haven't had any spots, but Whitey had spots and females don't get spotty... ), but anyway, I'll have to see what happens, and if they hatch I'll pop down to InStore and get a largish plastic container to use as a tank for them...

Thanks, I have examined Mop as closely as I can, but he just won't stay still long enough to see if he has his spots, everytime I get close to the tank they think I'm going to feed them!!!

But yes, I hope to see some little baby fishies, I don't know what I'll do with them though, might sell them or might just give them away on Freecycle, but we'll see what transpires...

I have a picture of the masses of eggs, but I can't find my camera's cable or my card reader, so I can't upload that just yet...

Hmm, looks like they're not going to hatch, they look like they've turned white and are going a bit iffy...

Ah well, maybe next time...

I will do, but they have gone white and seem to have a blob round them, unless that's normal, but I have read that white eggs are duff eggs, but we'll see...

Nope, definitely looks like they have gone bad, I'll pull the tub out tomorrow, it's a bit late now (midnight here in the UK)...

Well, I know how to get them to breed now, so if I want some babies I'll do it the right way when they're not feeling itchy with Ich...

Tinnitus, basically when your ears make annoying sounds due to loud or constant noises, it can be pretty bad for some, but others tend not to notice, but for me the humming I get when I go to bed is very annoying!!!

It's ok, it only lasts until I fall asleep, my dad used to get it badly though when he was a delivery driver, some find it comforting to have an off-station radio under the pillow as it eases the sounds the ears make...

I must try that sometime...

Actually, that could be useful to get the warm air from the radiators moving, the bedroom is pretty cold at night in there!!!
