So excited! My S. petricola catfish spawned in a flower pot- marbles setup. I removed the marbles this morning to find probably 200 small eggs.
Now what do I do? I tried putting them in my tumbler but they fall through the holes at the bottom. So I temporarily have them in a breeder box with an air stone, floating in my ten gallon tank.
Do they need lots of agitation? How long to hatch? Advice please.

I regret not being able to get any help. The following morning the eggs were fungussed. I could not deal with them until day's end. When I came home from work all were doomed so I ended with zero fry.
Sad, but I am happy to know I had a spawn. Either none were fertile or they just needed better care.

sorry to hear about your loss. but at least some good came of it. try joining the chat to get some hands on assistance next time. gl with your next spawn, keep em well fed and maybe toss some extra protein their way (in hopes of getting stronger eggs?)
