I've been pootling about trying to find out how long eggs (of a few species) might take to hatch and two or three weeks seems to be about what you could expect. Of course, you don't know how old they are already but if they're not hatched by the end of the month then we've all been eagerly awaiting baby shirt buttons or something.

I daren't watch any more of your videos. Seriously, how do you ever get anything else done when you have a whole river of fascinating little creatures to watch? They're mesmerising.

Tnx for looking around. When i started this little live filming project i was thinking in hours... yesterday I realized it could be days.. And now ..tnx to you! i'm into weeks.. a month ! WHaaa, i'm not a patient man. : )
Besides it runs on my 400 watt PC.. thats not nice.. But I can't stop .. i'm curious and stubborn to.

'Before I head my work glass desk placed over the L shape at the wallside. So i could see everything around me, while "working" ( and occasionally dropped something into the water ) . It was very relaxing.. maybe a little too relaxing., So i recently moved a few feet away ; )

Very cool!

It looks like there is something moving around inside the top one.

Maybe its a reflection or trick of light, but if so I would expect to see the same effect on the other ones.

Awesome set up! I've got a 65 gallon 'regular' tank, and yours is so much cooler!

(Mainly responding so I can find this thread easier)

Hi Tommy, I also see something move on the eggs.

First i did think maybe a parasite ( or beneficial ) small thing crawling around.
But it could also be some debree cached in the egg-slurrie what is keeping them on their place, and dangling in the little current.
Third.. It could be movement inside. : )

Tnx, and 65 Gallon is a descent tank , and you have windows! ; )

What happened?

Did something move the eggs or did the camera move?

Edit: Now I see you are moving the camera. Or you have ghosts.

I've tried googling to find out what might lay purple-colored eggs like that but I've had no luck.

Sometimes I move the cam indeed to trying to get a better picture.. or i just knocked it of its aim, my setup was not taught out, it was an ad-hoc decision so its not very stable or handy.

Those eggs are 1/2 a mm each.. so my little old webcam is having a hard time to focus on them. I tried magnifying it with a little lens, but no luck so far.
Tnx for searching, i tried as well, no luck so far.

Any Biologists around ?

What would be the ideal temperature for my little breeding bath ?

They come from water around 20 Celsius, as my lamp gives heat.. i had some problems with keeping the temperature stable.

It went up to 27 ...oops... poached eggs anyone?
Now I try to keep it stable around 25 to simulate spring or summer...

Any tips ?

Edit , I also got a little airflow going in to keep the water oxygenated and moving.

Head-sup: Gonna do some maintenance.

Software update, and a restart of my PC .

Hope to be back live in a few minutes.

Edit: Maybe i should put my avatar comet in a Sun-synchronous orbit and see for myself

For that one viewer: We are
again !

eehm.. I know i'm getting a bit over the top now.. But i made a little underwater tour as well:

I'm not a n good egg keeper, temp was up to locally 26/27 again. Ai.
I also know now why the shrimp not swim in front of the cam anymore.. he was lying all crispy next to the bowl. Even a bit more red as i remember.. I hope i did not boil him out.. but he jumped : (

I've turned down the light, and put on the blue little leds on the webcam for the night.
It wil lower temps.. that might be good to simulate night..

But i have no clue.. and it seems no biologists on ATS so.. vingers crossed.. and good night !

Tja.. what can I say...

They are still hanging loose
No fungus i think
They survived my Christmas balls
I want my fakePro and saladebowl back!

Mini update:

Still no difference...

Not sure if i'm willing to keep the 24/7 live stream up.
I'm thinking about switching to a photographic time-lapse.

I'm so interested in this, whatever you decide to do please don't leave us in suspense as to the outcome.

I even know the names of the denizens of your little river. In your video a fish was swimming about and I thought 'Oh, that's Cleopatra'.

Sorry to hear about the poor little shrimp, though. rip 🌹

Tnx for following along, somehow it is intriguing.. the unknown ; )

Well something is happening.
But not with the eggs..

I noticed more and more gas bubbles are forming on the rock

I guess it is the pre phase of some algae grow starting due to the continues light

Oh Oh...

We have a visitor

It seems the eggs have escaped the snail, besides some green poo.

When the snail crawled by you could actually see its heart beating.

Perhaps that's Mum stopping by to check on the kids?

The bubbles all have smiley faces

That's been a quick week, well done for keeping them safe for this long.
