No pressure! LOL! This is just with an Iphone and an Olloclip...not the best setup but doable. I have better light when the sun is out as the light floods the room but heck as long as the egg stays put and doesn't wiggle off the sponge this should be a great 'step by step' type photo sequence. WOOOOTT!

HOLY COW. You have to stay there and take a photo every five minutes. That is INSANE. You can make a YouTube montage afterwards and become famous.

Here is Eggy this morning...now I'm a little concerned since the color has become so orange...because I would normally take this as a bad sign. Then again it may be because it's just so different from the other eggs which are still red (eyes visible in all). But I hope this little sucker is still viable. There is some strange stuff going on on top of the egg...almost like little legs starting to poke out...doesn't look like any fungus on it but something odd is going on with that back half. I'm going to try to move some of the other eggs to that side of the sponge where I can photograph them as well. It may all be useless in the end but then again if something bad goes down with the eggs, I'd like to document that as well so when folks go through the same thing they may be able to tell the difference in viable eggs and lost ones.

Well first off it is upside down. And second off I would think the poor thing is dead :/ the colors don't look healthy. However... If the colors are just a phase (I really hope) then those look like little appendages hanging off it.

Can you see any movement?

I'm doing this too, only with a filter bag under the outflow of my HOB. RIP Ms. Sakura.

Can't see movement because they are constantly moving due to the sponge filter. The only reason I hesitate about it being dead (Which is my thought too) is the orange color began developing when the initial split developed. So it looks like the color change is part of the cellular development. But I just don't know. I may turn off the sponge filter here in a little bit and see if I see movement from it. Not even sure if it CAN move though.
ETA: Turned the filter off, no movement. Went to move the egg and it literally fell apart and turned to powder. RIP Eggy.

Going to move other eggs to the front this afternoon for further documentation.

Ug. I was so sure, too. Well, let's try the others until there is no hope left...

RAOK Club and BBRR Club! My thinking has been invert-ed!

Yeah. I was pretty sure the orange color sparked death. Still very neat.

Sorry Jamie

Still got 20+ eggs to watch so one egg down isn't horrible...just hope that's the only death.

Well these are CRS... They have a high mortality rate. So hopefully you're right.

Well, that's after they hatch. At this point I just want them TO hatch so I can know if this system will work in the future. I just meant hope it's the only egg death.
