    Hey everyone so this is my first hatch and wanted to know if this was normal or what it meant. I have kept the temp around 100 and humidity at 50 it's the 7th day and I wanted to see if there was anything going on in them this is what I see super clear at the pointy end but a dark mass up top is this good or bad?

    Hard to tell from your pic but it looks promising.

    From the red color it looks to be fertile.

    Out of 120 eggs 20 of the eggs were completely transparent the other 100 were dark except for a little portion of the pointy end. So I'm hoping that's a good sign I cracked open the 20 one had a blood ring going around the entire thing and the other 19 were not even fertilized
