So excited! My S. petricola catfish spawned in a flower pot- marbles setup. I removed the marbles this morning to find probably 200 small eggs.
Now what do I do? I tried putting them in my tumbler but they fall through the holes at the bottom. So I temporarily have them in a breeder box with an air stone, floating in my ten gallon tank.
Do they need lots of agitation? How long to hatch? Advice please.

The following morning the eggs were fungused. I could not deal with them until day's end. When I came home from work all were doomed so I ended with zero fry.
Sad, but I am happy to know I had a spawn. Either none were fertile or they just needed better care.

Possibly next time you could put some of the eggs into a net and in a container with light movement from an air stone with enough methylene blue to colour the water. If they were fertile they may develop.
