PostSubject: Fully white egg   Tue Apr 30, 2013 8:00 am

My female laid eggs on the 26th of april so it has been 4 days since they have been laid and there is one egg that i can see that if fully white. Is this any cause for concern or is it just an unfertilized egg?

Also my last lot of eggs hatched in 3 days what is the average time frame? How long should i wait for the eggs to hatch cause this is the second batch of eggs my male has taken care for in a row so i wanna get him rested as soon as i can dont want him going for too much longer.

Is the white egg In the cave with the male? If so, I'd leave it to dad, he knows best! If not then I'd take it out with some tweezers.

It usually takes 5 days for BN eggs to hatch. I wouldn't wait past 7. Maybe someone else has a different opinion?

Yeah its in the cave in the cluster with all the other eggs. Maybe its just one that didn't get fertilized. Hopefully they hatch tomorrow so my male can have a well deserved break for a while Smile.

Hi,the eggs are fine,they can take up to 7 days to hatch but is usualy around 5.I wouldn't take the eggs away from dad as soon as they hatch.Why don't you take the females out instead would be much better.The white egg is just an unfertilised egg and you need to leave it well alone.


Bristlenoses Very Happy

I was gonna tip the babies out of the cave and remove the cave 6 or 7 days after they hatch Smile. So they don't spawn again. Thanks for the advise on the white egg too.
