Silly fish. That isn't how you make babies.
Lol I'm glad they're figuring it out.

Both females are removed and it is all up to the males now . The only damage in the grizzle female is a few missing scales, but the yellow/blue girl is pretty tore up and, most concerning, she banged her eye or something and not it's swollen and there's blood in it. She's still active and healthy otherwise so I'm thinking all she needs is a bit of Epsom salts, IAL, and clean water.

Lol thanks.

I'm going to start a spawn log(s) once they start free swimming. I get a few days off, then the work really begins...

Dt ate the vast majority of his eggs. I have five left (that I can see)... Oh well, at least I have some, and five babies will not be hard to raise and will grow fast lol. I got him out, now I'm just hoping they stay in the nest for the next 12-24 hours until they hatch.

The other dad is doing well, and I think he has a big spawn, but I can't really tell since he made his nest in the least visible place possible.

Ok, so, he definitely ate some eggs and was an awful daddy but there are a lot more hen I thought... There are eggs underneath the duckweed... I probably have more like 30. I made sure to look everywhere to make sure he didn't just move his nest, but I guess I missed some.

A few eggs are starting to twitch. We're only about six hours away from 36 hours which is when I expect them. Excited to wake up tomorrow lol.
