<< My F. dispar have been spawning but in a mounth I've only been able to
recover about 20 eggs. The first and single egg from 5-5-00 didn't hatch
untill 5-31-00. It looks like all the eggs are developing that slow from
observations under the microscope. I can't remember how long it took for the
eggs to hatch with F. notatus and chrysotus, but it seems like a long time.
If anyone has experience with dispar could you let me know if this is
normal. >>

Don't know about dispar, but F. julisia can be very vairable and sometimes
takes a couple of weeks. ??? Don't know why. Certainly doesn't seem to be
completely temp dependant.
