Right now he cant seem to keep the eggs in the nest. =( He has let the nest fall apart and hes just picking up the eggs that have fallen and blowing the eggs back up but they fall right back down. Poor guy if he would just leave the eggs and let them fall long enough to rebuild the nest they would stay up in the nest.

Not a good sign. I have had this happen before and that spawn didn't hatch, I figured it was from over handling. Not to mention Dad is working too hard on a little over a day of having the eggs to deal with.

Wish me luck!

That's why they need to be in prime condition. IME nest has little to do with eggs staying on the water surface. And over handling doesn't effect hatch rate.

Gorgeous pair. Hope you get lots of fry.

Let me know if you want to make this a SPAWN LOG

Yes conditioning is always a must! Well that is good to know I wont fret about him over handling the eggs. Thanks for letting me know about the spawn log. Thank you I like the pair too! =)


He actually just repaired the nest a little its not very impressive but it is better. He still not putting the eggs back in the nest though hes just blowing them toward the surface so the eggs are falling I made a video and took a few pics with my phone.

Most of the eggs have hatched! The newest of hatchling are laying at the bottom of the tank. Dad is concerning himself with the most active fry trying to keep them in one place.

Well looks to be about 25-30 fry. There could be more fry in the heavily planted section that I cant see but Im calling it 25-30.

I also see two deformed dead fry that he has yet to give up on, he has tried to put them back in the nest a few times since I have been home. lol I had a talk with him before breeding and told him he better not eat his young. I think he took me too seriously lol


I see only 3 horizontal so Dad is staying for now.
