I dont think he is eating them... just isnt keeping up w them. There are like 15+ on the bottom of the tank. he doesnt seem interested in picking them up unless they wiggle, then he will suck them up and try and blow them in the nest. Seems like he is blowing the same 3-4 back into the nest over and over again. lol

How is he doing this morning with the fry? Maybe next time because of practice he will be a more doting dad?! Hopefully! He has never gotton the chance to keep up with fry at my house unfortunately.

Hes doing great! I didnt take him out yet, wanted to see what he would do with them. I see fry zipping all over and daddy chasing after them. Cant tell how many there are but it was a small spawn to begin with. :)

I wouldn't worry about him not grabbing the other ones. Mine did that and i ended up with a ton of fish. They breathe with their gills for the first couple weeks anyway. Him putting them in the nest is mostly just to keep them together so he can defend them from predators or keep them from getting lost/buried in the dirt (he doesn't know he's not in the wild).

Maine did that. He kept catching his darting fry, sticking them in the nest, only to have the "rebel children" dart off again!

Took the male out yesterday... I still see a few fry. Cant tell if they are free swimming and hiding in the java moss or he ate some before I took him out. Some are swimming in circles upwards, idk if they are just slower at getting to the free swimming stage or if they arent quite right. Guess time will tell. I plan on spawning these guys again as soon as they have had a break and reconditioning.

Some probably will do the spinning-out-of-control swim Some of mine did that and crash landed in plants or against something.

Love to see pictures, if you are able to :p
