    Hi,
     
    Is it possible to take the eggs of 'Fundulopanchax Gardneri Jos Plateau' from the peat they're be delivered with and place them into petri dishes with aged water?  If so do you have any advice for antibacterials that can be used in the water to prevent any nasty's? 
     
    I hope this is a sensible question but I'm itching to know the answer.
     
    Thanks folks

    I'd really rather not do this all wrong.  Can anyone at least tell me if it's not a good idea?  There's so much info online but everyone seems to do it differently.
     
    Any advice is good advice.

    Yes that's a common way to do it.  What I'm trying to find out is if doing the above is a bad move or a good move.  Have you kept Killifish before? :)

    Well then all I can do is continue to research and give it a bash.  I'll keep you posted and let you know if it works out. :)
