Gosh darnit............. maybe I spoke to soon. Well the female just decided to abandon the spawn. She still has eggs. (she still has white speck on her belly and I can see the eggs) From what I can see, there's really not that many eggs in the bubble nest. The male is taking turns flaring at the female (trying to lead her to the nest) and caring for the eggs. Is she just taking a break?????? The male is not hurting her. I'm thinking I should just leave her in there and wait for them to start spawning again???? or should I remove her??


P.S. Sorry I keep confusing you guys. :C

They usually are finished when the male drives the female away and will not let her return to the nest....sometimes she needs to rest and if he is still trying to flirt and lead her to the nest I would leave her for now...unless she is panting and appears too tired to go on...not worth stressing her out....make sure you have lots of places for her to get out of his line-of-sight to rest...when she is ready she will return head down....

Finally the spawn is done!! well........was done about 2 days ago. Anyway........the fry have Hatched!!!!!!!!!! Theres prob. about only 30, but thats all I really expect from some first timers. You were right when you said they were small!! I'm trying to convince my Mother asap to buy some microworms off of eBay. Will that work when they are this small up until they are larger???

Only for a week or so. You should run to a fish store to get some baby brine shrimp eggs.

I double MrV, In my area, newly hatched BBS is mostly used for the first 2 weeks. So you should get and prepare them asap (other than the microworms).

Ok..........well it's been ike 4 days since hatch. About a day ago, I could see 15-20 fry hanging from the nest. Now, today I don't see any fry at all???? By now I would think they would be free swimming. I do have a large piece of hornwort and other plants in the tank. Are they free swimming and I just cant see any of them???? or did the male eat them???? Should I take male out yet???
