A female Kigoma Cyprichromis spit a bunch of 14 eggs while I was cleaning the tank. I dug out an air pump tubing and valves and hooked up the tumbler...that I've never used but thought I might need in a pinch. I got 13 to the tumblers...1 got squished and 12 grew to fry. If you ever worried about tumbling it is easy to figger out. here are some pics.

The tumbler is mostly the guts from a sponge filter and some acrylic tubing. I need to make a bigger one for the Frontosa if I have to tumble them. This one would hold about 20 cyp eggs. it is 1 3/4 in in diameter.
