    I swear I had a link saved that gave the recipe for an alcohol solution to preserve embryos in however I have lost it and not been able to find one. His project is an embryo set. Can anyone point me in the right direction please.

    I had a student do something similar in our Science Fair a couple of years ago, good luck! I'd love to see how it turns out.

    we will be maling an embryo set and diagrams of different stages of incubation. We are also hoping to get at least one live chick out of this.

    A friend of mine preserved some halfbeak livebearer fish in pure rubbing alcohol when he was a kid. He's now maybe in his 50's and he still has them. [​IMG]
