Hi everyone! Quick question...

When you get S. bandensis eggs, do you need to acclimate them before adding them to your tank? How well can the egg walls regulate what goes in or out of the egg? I can't seem to find an answer to that in the papers I usually reference.

IMO..i like to acclimate everything that goes in my tanks, but i do it just enough to get the temp stable and water quality close, i'm not one for doing two and three hour acclimations. maybe 20 mins at most then I transfer the plant/animal or egg in this case.
