Hello there, I am pretty new at breeding bns. I have had four successful spawns from my longfin albino males and various females with at least two spawning from my only brown female. I had just recently moved all the adults into a 180 barebottom tank in order to leave the 120 gallon tank for all the previous juvies, and tow females had spawned with one of my males. Something happened and he ended up kicking the entire spawn out of the spawning cave. I removed them and put them in a diy egg tumbler and they are hatching right now as I type. I estimate about 80-100 eggs showed fertile. I took a clear plastic piece of pipe made to cover an 8' flourescent light bulb and cut it to about 12" On the bottom I took a 1" pvc tee and put a piece of plastic window screen over it and put it into the end of the clear pipe. I then put the eggs into the pipe and cut some filter sponge to use as a plug. I slid the plug down the pipe until it was about and inch and a half above the eggs. I then put an airstone down the pipe and turned the air on until the eggs were moving a little but not jumping around. It works so far. If I have some more time I will post a few pics of my diy setup.

Sounds interesting, do you have any pics?
ATM I have made a fry tank - like the ikea one I have posted previously.
Not used it for eggs but raising a few fry in it, works a treat as they do not have to search far for food,
reckon would be able to use it for the eggs if needbe.

High guys , Is there really the need for an egg tumbler Curby? Why not put the eggs in a breeder net with an airstone - like we have suggested to everyone else who asked about stray eggs? I've only used this method and gets 100% success rate+ I've never used a tumbler so can't give any advice(except for the tip - thefishcave.com)
cheers J

As near as I can tell I have about 80-100 with near 100% hatch rate. We will see how they take to being raised away from dad.

Just an update. When I finally released them I had to stop counting at 175. Of those that did hatch I lost about 10-15 in the first few days. The rest are eating like champs. I feed them cucumbers, tropical flakes, and a very small fry food that I had used to feed baby discus.

cheers troy....
Is there any chance you could post a step by step on making tumbler's??

I think they are a must if egg's are booted out the cave and your proof is also proof that they work a hell of alot better than a standard fry saver with an air stone in...

cheers for posting mate.....more pic's please... Very Happy cheers

Using a net breeder, do you keep the airstone running until the eggs hatch or until the fry are free swimming? I have a bunch of L144 eggs I didn't really want developing in a net now and they look like they will hatch in a couple of days.

High skippy, I don't even use the stone in the net caper as I have a 1800ltr p/h power head blowing across the front of the tank where the net is situated , as for removing the stone - when the eggs hatch you'll notice the fry all bundeld up together( I'm assuming this is a comfort thing) so saying that , maybe to much air would disrupt this- so yeah I'd loose the stone as soon as they hatch.
Unless the air is low volume and fry are still hanging together you could play it either way.
cheers J

They are now bumping about so maybe I will turn the airstone right down and hedge my bets. Whilst I was trying to catch and relocate a couple of peppered corys I noticed a few other baby plecos also wriggling in a couple of things I was moving about. It seems I'm about to be inundated with a plague of little buggers. I hate it when that happens!

My male recently kicked out 80+ eggs and I hatched them in this, he's still sat on 100+ fry in his cave mine you
