    Okay, so almost all of our buff orp eggs have hatched. Ones almost out, but there is an egg that's blowing bubbles, and not making any progress.

    The humidity's not to high, I checked.

    So, any ideas?

    the egg is no good and i promise it will break or explode if you don't get it out. i had 1 do the same thing about 2 days ago and it cracked leaking nasty green slime and the smell was horrible to say the least. you might wana toss that egg.

    bad egg...wear rubber gloves when you remove it in case it explodes [​IMG] and I wouldn't have my nose too close either
