I may try him or my CT with another female, to rule out the "bad daddy" part. Fiona's been fatter than fat with her eggs, and she always passes a huge chunk of white re-absorbed eggs - plus her flirting.
I really do miss Maine and Madame. They did so well :/ and he wasn't an egg/baby muncher.
On side note from the CT/VT spawn the one baby is doing so good and basically is a mini betta.
