Preventing Fungus growth on Stripped Pyjama squid eggs


Feb 12, 2018

Hello! Recently I have had Stripped Pyjama squid lay eggs, and hoping to raise them into adulthood! I have found that after transfering the eggs to breeder boxes, after a few days they seem to be growing a layer of grey fuzz around them. Are there any dips/ medications that might be able to apply to the eggs to prevent fungus growing on the eggs? I know how sensitive cuttlefish can be!
There are a number of aeration techniques used to prevent the development of fungus/algae on the eggs but I have not seen suggestions for removing existing. Here is one from MBARI - you might try something like this with half the eggs in hopes that the tumbling will gently remove the fuzz. @Thales ?
