The image of this I have in my head is just... LOL! Poor girl wants to feel relevant as a parent
Oh yeah, I forgot to mention that I figured out why I haven't had any albimarginata spawns. It's not that they're not spawning, they're just eating the eggs right after! I caught them in the act yesterday. Sigh! At this point I don't know how many times they've done it, but I suspect it's a habit by now and I probably won't get any babies out of either pair. I know I have my hands full with the ocellata at the moment, but I did hope I'd eventually get some albi babies. I may need to get another pair in the future if I want that to happen successfully. Ditto for the patoti, the female is fine but the male has continued to attack her whenever she comes out of hiding. And not in a spawning way, in an "I AM GOING TO MURDER YOU!" way. I have such uncooperative fish lol.
