Ares is still doing a great job, I left a flash light on during the night so that he could find his eggs and I could still sleep lol. Woke up and a few are on the bottom, but he's still working away.

There are eggs all over the ground, but ares is actively collecting them and the majority are in the nest, so I'm not worrying. Yesterday I counted the eggs on the floor (it didn't look lik many) and there were 58. This is a fairly good sized spawn!

Ugh. Ares kinda slacked on his bubble nest and his eggs just fall out. The majority are on the ground, but he tries! Hopefully they will still hatch.

They will still hatch but leave him in there and do not disturb him! Watch for fungus on the eggs and remove all infected ones, they should be fine.

I know. I'm so frustrated with him, but they should hatch tommorow and we'll see how it goes I guess. I'm hopeful!

So... All of my fish are good, Jess (the mom) is recovering very well and has tiny amounts of damage. I still have a lot of hope for this spawn. It's not like he leaves them to rot on the bottom, he picks them up, spits them into his failure of a nest, then they fall again. All eggs look healthy still. They should hatch tomorrow. Lets hope for the best!
