You will just know when there are eggs, they are little yellow dots that are obvious against the nest. That first embrace probably was a "false" embrace, since usually they will keep embracing in rapid succession. Don't be sorry about questions!
Well I watched them for awhile and they were having a hard time getting it right, so I left on a trip for about 5 hrs and come back to this!!!!
Thanks! I'm so excited its my first time attempting and so far its working out great! should start seeing fry tomorrow night around this time so I will make sure to get some pictures. you can subscribe if you'd like because I plan to have updates with pictures at least every other day!:D
For feeding them, green water is useless, but infusoria is not. It sounds like what you inadvertently made was infusoria (get out a penlight and shine it in the culture, are there tiny, drifting particles?). I would feed bbs right off the bad if you don't have a banana/micro/Walter worm culture. Are there live plants in the tank?
there are little specks but am I supposed to see them move? and no live plants right now I have some bulbs that have been growing outside in a container for almost a month now just starting roots about 2-3 inches. I have the bbs eggs and have made them before but wasn't sure if they were going to be to big for the fries first meal other than their yolk sacks.
