My first spawn failed, as the eggs ended up infertile (common for first-timers), but this one has worked out so far. :)
I put my pair in a 10G filled to about 4 inches. I floated some bubblewrap to encourage him to build his nest and gave him an entire night to begin his work. The next morning, I released her, and I had eggs within 12 hours. :)
Mom has some damage and is recovering.
Now, about two days later the eggs have hatched, and I seem to have somewhere between 30-50 fry falling out of the nest and driving Dad crazy!
These are the parents:
Hoping to have lots of beautiful babies...
