Don't want to hijack this thread. I love it and look forward to your updates. So the short version - yes. I am seeing many examples now that point to water chemistry effecting the initial setting of the embryo and also a very strong connection to split scutes.I literally just run them under tap water. Luke warm and rub off all the slimy film.
Is there evidence that fluoride, pH, etc causes harm to the egg? Would love to know more. Even if it’s a theory.
