I just bought Nothobanchius rachovi, I wanted to know how to hatch them.
 
First off, beautiful fish!

Secondly, here is what I could find on SF:

“When its natural habitats become dessicated during the dry season the adult fish die, leaving fertilised eggs encased within the substrate. These are resistant to dessication and remain there until the rains return some 5-6 months later at which point the fry hatch and grow very quickly with sexual maturity reached at around 3 weeks of age.

Typical lifespan in the aquarium is 6-12 months and eggs should be stored at a temperature of 70-77°F/21.1-25°C for 5-7 months before being wetted.“
