Well my aculeatus beans has layed eggs. She has been brooding for now about a week and a half. I had her for about 4 weeks. So the eggs are most likely fertile. I did get a glimpse of them. They are tiny. I do know that raising these eggs are very challenging and the longest they have been kept alive is 11 days. Also she has eatin a few hermits and a little bit of a shrimp. What i am planning to do is put each baby in a 3 in clear tube with fine netting on both ends. Then set them at the bottom of the tank. I am planning them to feed all the babies tigger pods. What do you think about this? Also what is a pretty simple way to set up a brine shrimp hatchery? Does any one see any errors in this process? About how many hatch out of the eggs? Also about how many babies will there be?
