    I candled them yesterday night and I saw no internal pips they were doing great before alot of movement and they looked fine. But day 17 I stopped seeing movement. I remember the temperature dropping to 96 for about half an hour a few times and going up to 103. Maybe thats what stopped them, aquarium incubator has failed me [​IMG]

    Just wait a few more days. The first time I tried to incubate eggs, there was 4 eggs. Only one hatched and it didn't hatch until day 30 (duck eggs). So wait a little longer, just to be sure.

    I hardly see a lot of movement around day 18 before lockdown. I'm not sure if it's because the lack of room in the egg or if they are resting for the big HATCH DAY! Don't give up just yet.

    Mine did that too. I externally pipped them on day 21 since there was still no movement, then 6 hours later when no progress we carefully helped ours out. Our darkest eggs were shrink wrapped so at least some of them made it since we helped them.

    I don't think that's such a good idea- the OP posted two months ago. If they haven't hatched by now..... [​IMG]
