I had a female I thought was pregnant very early on in the season, but never filled out fully. She just drop her eggs last week, whenI was expecting them by early June.

Well, long story short, she laid 8 eggs, but one was an obvious slug. The other 7 were in a hovabator within 48 hours of them being laid (about 3 from the time I first noticed them. Still, so far, I've lost three to greenish yellow bacteria. And one looks like it is on the way out.

Three of the remaining eggs have good veins, but they are denting after 10 days in the incubator. The hottest it's gotten in there is 91.2, and the coolest is 86.6, but the overall temp since it's stabilized has been between 88 and 90. The humidity has held steady at a 99.7% the whole time, so I'm not sure why the eggs are denting.

I'm using a hovabator and the no-substrate method with the eggs on a light grate elevated slightly over the incubator's own water lining that has about 1/8 of an inch of water in its chambers. The environment seems right, but the eggs keep failing....

Anyone have any kind of tips?
