So I was doing a water change for my eggs and I noticed one has no jelly around it but it is reacting when touched the other two are the least developed and after moving one has turned slightly cloudy I will post a pic those three are separated for the moment from the other eggs I also lost one while moving them could someone help me and tell me what I should do as this is my first time dealing with eggs. The one that I lost also looked like the other two.

How are you moving them ?

I generally only do 1 water change while in the egg stage to avoid issues from handling.

turkey basters can cause huge damage.

I am moving them by hand I am doing a water change every 2 days at the moment but I am worried because I forgot to add the water conditioner to the water and they were left in there for a couple of hours before I realised their tails are slightly curled but they look like they are doing well the one that had no jelly actually hatched and is the only one so far out of the clutch that has hatched the other two that I was worried about were duds so I got rid of them. There are seven of them six are still eggs and the last pic is of the hatched one.

eggs only need a change once a week and sometimes not at all.
hands are safer.
most larvae have curled tails in the egg due to space issues

Thank you what about the one that has hatched is that a daily water change?

    To raise GH, add calcium carbonate (or tums). What has you doing this?

    Thank you! My tap water is naturally low in GH and KH, and I need to raise it... but I don't want to raise the pH, which is perfect, with coral.

  • AnimeDan:
    Hi Delaney. Can you be more specific? There are lots of reasons for cloudy water, such as substrate getting kicked up, water hardness, etc. if you don’t have hard water and it doesn’t settle then I’d do a water change and see if that helps.

    Hey guys... Hope you all keeping well... I have 4 fire belly newts and one looks very bloated... I have seperate him and moved him to his own enclosure so he can get better hopefully but I don't have a filter in this specific enclosure. Please can you guys advise if I need to get him one or whether I can leave it? I have read a lot of articles that say they prefer still water and I can change his water frequently keeping it clean. Please advise 😊
