    I had 3 embryos that all died at the same time. Is it something I did or can that just sometimes happen?

    the last time this happened to me is that a bug got in the eggs. This is why i never spray water on my eggs anymore.
    Also, it could've been a temperature spike. you should get a thermometer that reads the minimum and maximum temperatures.

    I'm sorry to hear you lost three. I had all 12 of mine die while they were embryos. All I can figure was the heat spiked and killed them.
