Day 2 - Day after spawn: Dad is keeping a close eye on the spawn under the cup. I am not sure how many made it as, I see many eggs on the floor of the spawning tank. Considering how he seems to be staying in only two areas under the cup, I am guessing it isn't big but, I have been surprised before.
Mom had no damage and, I had removed her right away so, he really had no chance to get at her. I did add some IAL extract I made, slowly into the water today as, it is a great antifungal. I will check in a few hours, to see if we have any live fry as, it's only been 24 hours. I will immediately be putting WW in, even though I have hornwart in there, just to give alternate live food.
I thought some had come out of their nest, earlier as, dad was darting to the end of the tank but, he must have chased an egg as, he is now standing guard under the cup and seems to be just staying there. Poor guy needs a big treat when he comes out. He is taking suck good care!
