Introduction to theĀ African catfish hatching system Plug and Play

Each fish tank of the African catfish hatching system Plug and Play can be stocked with 100 gram of eggs. Giving a total stocking density of 400 eggs per run. The fertilised eggs are spread over the included floating egg trays and hatch in around 24 hours (when water temperature is around 29 degrees Celsius). The larvae will fall through the mesh of the eggs trays while the non-hatched eggs will stay behind. Treating the eggs with chemicals is NOT needed, resulting in healthier fry.
