Cool

The number of bubbles in the nest is not important. Keeping the breeding tank covered helps keep them from dispersing. I have seen the nest disappear altogether and he still raised the brood.

It is covered thats why I get the plastic containers they come with lids :P I got tired of fighting cling wrap.
Maybe 20 eggs I can see but there is always more then I can see so maybe 30?

If the nest disappears altogether you can drop the water level to minimum to keep the heater safe. Just try not to disturb the nest more than you have to.

So far he is keepin it small but its still there... only 24 hrs max left. The other good thing is that I see no eggs on the bottom not sure if he is eating them but I doubt it.

Should be fine. I really doubt he is eating eggs unless they are not fertilized? My Big Ear HM let the unfertilized ones lay on the bottom and still did not eat them.

If he is disturbed too much he may hold many of them in his mouth to try and hide them, or move them to another location. Try to give him his space during this time.

Well they hatched (hatching) and I think daddy realized he needed more bubbles and now the nest is larger then ever lol.

And normally I see them sell for like 40$ a piece but that was the price of the pair so I had to grab it.
