We've had to remove Ariel a bit early. We can only see about 12 fry still surviving out of the 50+ that hatched. The bugger was eating them.

Aww man! That's too bad, I've had a baby eater too :(

Congrats on the spawn though!

Any reason why they would do that, or are some males just incapable of distinguishing fry from food?

I suppose stress? That is why my male ate the eggs in my first spawn. But maybe since they were already free swimming he did see them as a snack, he was probably hungry.

They'll do that if they are disturbed or feel threatened.

We did forget to take into account that their mother is still recovering from a nasty case of velvet: since it cropped up within a few days of spawning it may have taken its toll on the fry as well. No sign of it on Ariel though, and the few fry we have seen seem to be okay *knock on wood*
