My Octopus (species unknown) has lain eggs in its den which is a small hole in a piece of live rock. She stays there all the time and it has been a couple weeks since the eggs have been lain. I don't know if they are fertalized, however tonight when I was looking at the eggs I saw white dots on the end of all of the eggs and small brownish blobs on the inside as well as two spots on either side of each egg. I don' t know if this is what then normally look like, but I think that they are going to hatch. I'll upload some pictures tomorrow of them when I get the chance to take them with my good camera. If they are going to hatch, and this stage of their incubation sounds familiar, are there any estimates on the time until hatching? And if they do hatch, what do I do? I have couple small tanks that I could put them into, but I'm not even sure if these are small eggs or large eggs nor if they are rear-able or not! The eggs are pretty small, probably about 1 mm wide and 2-3 mm long (VERY rough estimates). So in conclusion, are these eggs likely to hatch, and if so, will I have any luck in rearing them as well as how.
