I have always assumed that eggs will hatch at various length of time depending on water temperature mainly. One would think that if other water conditions, eg water hardness, were the reason some eggs don't hatch then you would think that none would hatch (with the exception of unfertilised ones of course). With Cyanodorsalis and Townsville signifer, water hardness shouldn't be a factor - or one would think so. Salinity may be a contributing factor. However, I'm currently breeding and hatching T'ville signifer in ordinary Brisbane tap water which is roughly pH 7.4-7.5, GH 100-120 ppm and KH about 30-40 ppm with a conductivity of around 300 uS and NO added salt. This is the same water that I use for all my breeding - I never try to alter it? I have had rainbowfish eggs that eyed up and went all the way to larvae stage and then when I thought they would hatch within 12-24 hours, all the larvae went grey and died with no hatchings at all. These particular eggs were sent to me through the post and I put the reason down to something "unknown" that may have happened to them en route or because they were shipped without water. This incidentally has happened a few times with mailed eggs. However, I've never had this problem with my own eggs. I know that some species eggs need certain conditions to hatch but as stated above you would think that if the water conditions were unsuitable then no eggs would hatch at all. I have also never found a problem hatching rainbowfish or blue-eye eggs under my water conditions. What are your general water conditions Mach? Also I would be very interested to hear from other list members on this subject. Adrian. ............................................................... Adrian R.
