How Long Does it Take for MacMasteri Eggs to Hatch?

Hi everyone, I was able to get my MacMasteri pair to spawn! The female is currently brooding eggs (which I’m unable to see from the entrance). The internet mostly says it’ll take 3-4 days for the eggs to hatch, and a couple of people have said 7 days.

Does anyone have a relatively accurate answer for this species? My water temps are at 78F. Hardness is pretty low (GH&KH are 3). PH is around 7-7.2. Thanks.

Alors entre la ponte et l'éclosion il faut 3 à 4 jours et pour la nage libre il faut 4 jours un peu prés.
Il faut compter un peu près 9 jours entre la ponte et l'apparitions des alevins.

Thank you. That makes more sense. I woke up to wrigglers today so they must have hatched overnight.

Hatch time: 72-84 hours
