To do this, you need to do extensive daily wc. And try to feed various kinds of live food, instead of just VE. Try to make them constantly eat/snack through out the day. You should have close to 1cm fry in 4 weeks.

Oh I know about the water changes. I'm prepared to do these every day after the 2nd week.

And thanks for the suggestion I'll try to buy a different type of culture or some BBS eggs.

Hooray for fry!:D
I am actually watching some hatch at this moment. It really is beautiful! A few have also fallen from the nest and swam back up. Daddy is currently trying to catch all the little buggers. :P

There also some that are on the bottom of the tank on the complete opposite side where the nest is, waiting for dad to come and pick them up. :P

That's normal. He may even wander to the other side of the tank, but he'll come back. If he's bred before he knows what he's doing.
