Thanks a lot I hope so too. Any ideas how long i could wait for the other eggs that look good to hatch? I mean they look perfect is it normal for eggs to hatch days later?

To be honest I am not sure yet the thing is i have several other good looking eggs so hopefully they will hatch with some other beauties. The thing is these guys hatched on Christmas day so i wonder when the others will hatch any ideas?

As i said I had to improvise as the polystyrene box inside the tank was too small for the eggs and before i cut it it was too big anyway i can't see it being problem.
