Great photos. Your female is definitely a lot bolder than mine. Mrs stiktos spends most of her time skulking.

I love how readily the males of this complex flare. It takes a lot of effort to get my other males showing off like that.

Ugh, I can't tell if my male stiktos has eaten his eggs or just put them really high up in the nest so I can't see.

When I spied in on him just now,he swam under his nest and starting looking like he was gathering something up in his mouth. I assume based on him sticking close to the nest that there must be eggs still in there. I wish they would hatch soon as then I would definitely be able to tell.

I think they have the same turnover rate as the domestics, so they should be out by tomorrow. I could be wrong?

I'm not sure. I think hatching time is also based on water temperature.

I suppose I will just have to cross my fingers and hope to see some fry.

Well I know I said he ate the eggs, but I realise that perhaps the fry had hatched and I couldn't see them, as my stiktos male has a small number of fry in a nest he managed to rebuild.

Talk about a good father though considering I tipped him out of his film canister, tipped all the nest out and poked it a few times with my finger to see if I couldn't find any eggs.

No wonder he was in a panic and not leaving the nest site.

He was probably like "Hey mum come see my... OH MY GOD!!! NOOO!! WHAT ON EARTH ARE YOU DOING YOU CRAZY WOMAN?!!"

The fry are so tiny. Going to try and catch mum so she can't gobble anyone up. I think the male should be alright to leave in with them as he isn't freaking out or anything.
