I found this YouTube video of them actually stripping the eggs from Tilapia and hatching them in a pan... :mrgreen:

Cool! badflash has described this and also shows how he made an egg tumbler (as opposed to a pan), in one of his posts.

Notice the glove. They will spike you if they get a chance and it hurts like hell. The double net is important. One course, one fine. The fish will often spit the eggs before you get a chance to strip her, so the fine net catches those eggs.

Clean moving water is key to the hatch. It doesn't matter how you get it.
