I couldn't find that thread, but I think I remember the questions. The research was based on early developmental effects on the fish eggs and/or embroys. I started with a few things for trials.

I am planning on trying this with several environmental pollutants that are common, mostly nasty things (metals, toxins, peticides, you know, yucky things).

Ummm, so far I have found that just about everything concentrated effects the development. The trick is trying to find the correct level to deal with.

I am really doubting that the micro Z danios will mature sexually enough to breed. I think they are from the caffenine group or the retanoic acid group.

Once I finish it all up I hope to have some neat things. I still have to finish my Ich. research paper.... Tim
