They did, but I only managed to catch 4 of them. The rest hatched after I gave up and went to bed. Learned a bit this go around. First the room needs to be darker so they hatch sooner, and I really need to get the rotifer thing figured out.

Well, I am going to take a break from this as there are some things going on, nothing bad, that are just taking to much of my time to really be able to do this.

Based on the last hatch, these eggs should hatch on either Tuesday or Wednesday. This morning their little eyes showed up, so my guess would be Tuesday. I'll let you know, and let me know how to get them to you.

What method do you use to catch these little guys? I can come and get them from you on the night that they hatch.

I was going to just use the cup/bowl and flashlight method. This is because the eggs are on the back wall of the tank. I just need to make the room darker to encourage them to hatch sooner than later. My lights go out around 9PM, so I just need to make sure that I leave all lights off in the living room. I'll PM you my contact info.

Well they are hatching tonight. I turned the lights off 1 hour early, waited a bit for the lights to cool down, covered the tank with blankets, and turned off the pumps.

Magic! They started to hatch. Now to see if Mitch and I can catch them.

Well, not all of the eggs hatched. There are still lots left to hatch. Let me know if you want to try getting the remaining ones.

Maybe I will have to try again in two weeks. I just found out I have to go out of town for a week. Bad timing

Sad day! The orange one (female) took a dive outside the tank! Needless to say she did not survive. Maybe later on when I get the black one paired up again things will start up.
