Trout Egg Basket Options

There are many different ways to keep your eggs in your tank, and a lot depends on what you prefer.  
The standard breeding basket that comes in the kit can work just fine.  It can be a little small, and also sometimes eggs can be caught between the frame and the mesh.  One solution is to attach the mesh to the inside of the plastic frame.  If you do this, just be sure you secure the corners of the net with aquarium-safe materials.

Here the basket is assembled as per package instructions.  It is also possible to put the mesh net inside the plastic frame and secure it with aquarium-safe ties.

Another option is to build your own egg basket.  Virginia TIC has a great demo video of one way to do it.
