thanks.
the waterfall is part of a filtering system that I just found out is no longer being made. :(

it was around 60-70 new a few years back.

the name of it is :Water\'s Edge Viquarium.

Remove the eggs gently without turtning them at all. Put them in a sweater box or something to that effect with about two inches of vermiculite and have the tops of the eggs exposed with moss on the top if you want. The top of the box should have small holes in it. You want to keep the box humid inside. I use a spray bottle and spray once or twice a day. I have had great success with this. Mine always hatch within 80-85 days. Hope this helps
