Nice Thales!

Do you have some kind of recipe/documentation for this sugar treatment?

And here's another question, this article talks about artificially raising briareus eggs without a brooding female by suspending the eggs in a column of water using an aeration stone. No problem... just a fluidized bed. But is anybody aware of this being done with a small-egg mass?

It depends on what you want the sugar for...as a trate reducer I found it lacking. I was using a 1/4 tsp per 50 gallons.

There are a lot of people using egg tumblers for bangaii eggs, and their construction is varied. Check out http://www.marinebreeder.org/ for ideas.

When rearing eggs artificially, I'm assuming good water quality, high dissolved oxygen, and low or no light is best to prevent bacteria and algae from growing on the eggs? How about a UV sterilizer? Anything else?
