I’ve been spawning a lot of Dempseys in the last couple years in pursuits of breeding Blue ones…

My eggs usually hatch at around 72~84 hours (3~3.5 days)… I keep my water at about 80~82*F… in colder water it will take a bit longer…

The fertilized eggs turn reddish brown… funguses eggs turn white… unfertilized eggs get funguses really easily… I believe unfertilized eggs remain creamy in color…

If you are using an adult male and a young adult female I would suspect your male would have no problem fertilizing all the eggs…

I bet by this time tomorrow you have wigglers…

If the clutch does fail… I’ve had them spawn again as soon as 2 weeks later… and I’ve had them take months to try again…
