Anti-fungal and egg problems

I was wondering if anyone has ever had problems with fungus
developing on their zebrafish eggs. I sterilize everything very well
and sometimes still get fungus. Is there any chemical that I can
add to the embryo medium to help this problem???
My second question is regarding eggs. I have been having trouble
lately with the eggs developing. When left undisturbed in the
bottom of the breeding tank in normal water, they will develop fine.
However, when I collect them and add them to embryo medium at
28.5 degrees they have been dying. The chorion is fine, but the
yolk sac and cells seem to merge into a big glob and turn darker in
color?? Any suggestions???
Thanks very much to anyone who can help me as I have searched
all over the web and have a copy of the zebrafish handbook and
can't seem to find an answer.
