I woke up this morning and discovered that a bunch of tiny whitish specks were all beneath the bubble nest. I see my poor little male trying frantically to put them back in and I am upset.
I have no idea what happened, maybe part of the nest fell apart or something, but there were at least a hundred eggs spread beneath the nest and I just have a feeling that I'm not going to be having a fry any time soon. The poor male hasn't eaten (or slept probably) since the spawning and now this disaster has happened.
I just found out that my female is actually a copper half-moon (not dark silver) and my male is royal blue crowntail with red tipped fins and I thought they would have very unique looking and cute fry, so I'm upset.
How could this have happened? If they don't hatch in the next few days, shoudl I just take the male out and recuperate him and try again in a couple of weeks?
