Default First time tumbeling questions.

I successfully stripped my young female front 2 days ago. She's held befor but only untill day 4, so i stripped a few hours after the spawn. How do I identify fungused eggs?? I have been removing any that look extra white or have deformity in the surface of the eggs, but now they seem to have a white point on each egg. Is this where the tail will start to form? How white is too white and indicative of fungus ? Any input is appreciated.

Unfortunately if they start turning white at all chances are they are not fertile. How large are they?

I'd say they are about 3mm more turned white overnight and it looks like the rest are starting to turn. I assume none were fertalized. Maybe i'll have more luck next time. Thanks for the reply

Don't give up hope. Since my frontosas started spawning almost two years ago, almost half the time I ended up with eggs disappeared in a couple days, or if I stripped early, all eggs gone bad in tumbler.

On the bright side, it has worked over half the time. From keeping notes of what does and does not work, for me best success has been stripping at 14 days. I then tumble and hardly lose a fry.

It looks like out of the 27 eggs I have 2 that sprouted tails, I guess we'll see how long they last! lol
