Found eggs in my tank


Colossal Squid
Nov 19, 2002
Not much you can do! Is the mother still in the tank if so she'll look after them. If not you'll need to occasionally send a gentle flow of water over and through the eggs, a turkey baster works well. Once they hatch...if they do.....you'll need to have a LOT of amphipods etc ready for dinner. And expect many of the squirts to die off or be eaten by sibs.
