What is the incubation time of the Austrolebias?

These small killifish are one of the lines killifish enthusiasts, who often keep many species ends and the truth is that I understand, they are wonderful and its behavior and biology are one of the most peculiar things I have ever seen

The annual cycle of the South American Austrolebias is significant, lay their eggs in temporary waters and these eggs remain buried for several weeks during the dry season until the rains again with new fish hatch born of the earth.

When it rains we can say, "it's raining", we will not ever go wrong, but the weather is a science still uncertain for us, many times the weather man tells us to prepare the umbrella and then we need to cover our radiant sun ago.

Eggs thus will not have an exact period of incubation, if approx. But the eggs will develop each at a different pace.

The best method is to wait a minimum of time according to the time table for annual American diapause below and observe the state of development of the embryo to wet peat as explained in another article and get new fry for a new generation in our water aquariums sweet.
