    Hi everyone,

    So this morning I found 4 Emerald Rasbora eggs - moved them to a moss tank. Really hoping for more and that I can raise the fry. Been searching for these guys forever. I managed to get 8 about 2 or 3 months back but i am down to just 2 currently. I actually gave up on them but decided I had to give it one last try.

    Will post a pic of an egg tonight. Just hope they are fertile.

    Still no fry that I can see but its still too early. I think another 3 or 4 days until the possibility of free swimmers. I found another 4 eggs this evening which I moved to the hatching tank

    Congrats @TheGrissom, so about 10 days for them to pop? If they anything like rainbows you will have a higher count from here on.

    Something like that yes. I dont think I will get as many as rainbows - smaller fish, closer to my celestials. If I go by my cpds then somewhere between 3 and 10 usually
