    Jungle labs makes a product that prevents egg fungus. This should be available at most pet stores. A good practice is to remove all dead eggs as soon as possible to prevent the spread of fungus. A gently bubbling airstone is also advised

    If the eggs are too spread out and/or the parents are not fanning them well, set a bubble wand near (not under) the eggs to help water circulate over them. Meth Blue is a stand by that I keep on hand - it has been used longer than I have been around (a long time) and works without issues that I am aware; try and get some (I hear larger bottles can be bought.) Other meds may work but they are not well tested by users (and then they may be good or cause problems, only time will tell.)

    Do remove bad eggs where possible.

    Best of luck with the rest of the eggs!
    Knowledge is fun(damental)

    A 75 gal with eight Discus, fake plants, and a lot of wood also with sand substrate. Clean up crew is down to just two Sterba's Corys. Filters: continuous new water flow; canister w/UV, in-tank algae scrubber!! Finally, junked the nitrate removal unit from hell.

    Methylene Blue is the traditional anti fungal for fish eggs hatching tanks.
    Any dealer that sells Kordon products can order it for you if they don't already stock it. The dry powder form is available from Angels Plus.
