yeah they are very small. The so called "eggs" that you say are zooming back up are actually newly hatched fry that still has egg sacks.

If the male is neglecting the fry/eggs, it would be best to remove him. It's an early sign that there's something wrong with him - probably exhaustion. But if he's just resting from time to time and later picking up the ones that reached the floor then let him be.

Congrats. hope they make it.

Well some appear to be starting to free swim now, so I think I'm just going to take Cerberus out. He's done an amazing job being a dad and I think he needs a break, the fry should be fine right? Also could anyone tell me exactly how much BBS to add for about 30-40 fry? I just got a medicine dropper :D

Here's a video of the fry btw, so Cute :3

Just took daddy out since most of the fry appear to be free-swimming. I don't see that many though, could only really see maybe 10 at a time. But I guess they could be hiding in the java fern or the wisteria =/ I hope there's more! Fed them some infusoria, hopefully it had some critters that they can eat. And the BBS is currently in the progress of hatching, should be ready by tonight.

Updates will come soon! Also I will post a video when the fry Turn a week, two weeks, three weeks, etc. They hatched on Sunday, so expect a 1 week video on Sunday :D I hope I still have fry by then....Any tips/advice? I think I'm going to fill the 5 gallon up either tomorrow or the day after depending on how the fry look. Bye!
