I stripped yesterday, put the eggs into my DIY tumbler, where the eggs were tumbling yesterday, now, there are 0 eggs in the tumbler. The tumbler has mesh on the bottom and top. I have about 30-40 1" fry in this tank...is it possible they sucked the eggs through the mesh? What a way to ruin a crummy day....

Yep, happened to me first time I made a tumbler. You need a second mesh cover about an inch above the bottom one, or put the tumbler in an enclosure.

There is no learning like experience. I have read that before, just figured they were too small to mess with the eggs. That's not the first time I've been wrong and it certainly won't be the last. It's the last time I'll be wrong about that though.
