How many babies do you have? How did you extract the eggs?

Three babies from the artificial hatchery. I just flip the net upside down and pull the net to the surface of water. The babies came out by it self lol.

Actually I scoop the eggs with one of the flat tweezers tip. There were about 10+ eggs. I felt bad when I was extracting the eggs because I butchered the momma. Tried my best not to put any pressure on the eggs.

I have to refine my technique. Left organic matter on the eggs of my recent ones I was artificially hatching, and had some clumped together.
