Aphyosemion australe gold 25+ eggs


When you receive the package you can start immediately. Put the content in a bowl with about one liter of water, about 3 cm water level.  Use water from a well cycled tank or rain water. Keep the bowlor container covered as the eggs are light sensitive. When the eggs get dark (eyeing up) they will hatch within a few days. Now you can uncover the container and slowly start feeding. They are ready to take live brine shrimp along with powder dry food. After 2 weeks move them to a well cycled tank as they grow faster in a larger tank. Per trio a minimum of 12 litres is recommended until they are 2 cm in length then you should move them to their final fish tank.
