Just wondering if people prefer to leave them as is and not risk damaging the developing eggs or try and remove the bad ones to prevent moulding over the good ones? It seems to me like different people prefer different approaches.
Ive currently got two developing from the last clutch (first three clutches were all infertile) and I’m not sure how easy it would be to remove the bad eggs that are touching them. I think I will probably leave as is to avoid damaging the devolving ones unless I start to see mild creep up.
The two good ones are circled below
I've left them with no issues in the past, but also out of fastidiousness used a small eyedropper to carefully suck up the bad eggs from the egg mass. That takes some finesse if you don't want to damage the good ones. Either method has worked for me.
I usually don't mess with my eggs at all. I find that I have more issues with eggs the more I do to them. If I pull my eggs at all anymore, I usually leave them in their film canister or tadpool removable leaf in a petri dish until they're ready to swim free.
If I see infertile or molding eggs in a batch, sometimes I'll use a bit of diluted meth. blue on them, but I can't say I have evidence of better outcomes one way or the other.
