    I collected quite a few Nothobranchius Rachovi Beira eggs during September 2011. I have kept them in damp peat in a sealed bag at room temp in the dark and i still cant see any eyed up ones yet.

    What have i done/doing wrong ?

    The incubation time of Nothobranchius Rachovi eggs lasts between 5 to 7 months

    This is dependant on temperature, you may try to store your eggs at a slightly higher temp.
