artificially hatching CBS eggs

My berried CBS died and Im trying to hatch them. What are the chance of success? This is my first time too.

I put them in a net and placed them into the tank. I also will be spraying them with tank water as often as I can.

Chances are not good with the setup you have. I try that before; with the same type of net in a breeder box, put where the water is coming powered by air. All the eggs developed mold. I believed the problem was the net was not rigid enough for circulating the eggs. You would need a net that is more rigid and keeps it's shape, plus water flow.

Myself and Ravensgate have had some success with hatching eggs in this thread: https://www.plantedtank.net/forums/sh...ht=fascinating

My thinking has been invert-ed!

I had little success with artificial hatchery in a net.
Started around 10-12 eggs and only 3 hatched.
