PostSubject: How many eggs?   Tue Nov 10, 2009 5:31 am

Was just wondering how many eggs people usually get from there spawns?My 1st spawn i managed to save 15 fry,i know that 3 escaped into the tank.My 2nd spawn,i was a little late catching and only managed to save 6.This latest spawn ,i noticed the eggs last weekend.So checked again this weekend and the fry was hatched and free swimming(most had lost the eggsac).So i removed the piece of wood to my growout tank.I estimate i have around 200 wrigglers in there.Is this usual from 1 spawn?Or is it likely that both my females layed in the same piece of wood?

Female's can lay up 300 eggs mate depending on her size and as little as 40 or so...but if you have 200 off 1 female then i would say this is pretty normal...you may need to buy a bigger grow out tank because every 3 weeks or so you may have 200 wrigglers....when my female L182 spawned she layed a huge amount i mean there must have been over 300 eggs easily but i only saved JUST 4 grrrrr..
But she is a good 6 and half inch long may be bigger.....

cheers
