Thank you two! (:

Good and bad news: someone lifted the tank lid and coaxed my male out from under the nest while I was gone (at work or school. Idk when this was I found out last night). I went and checked on the nest this morning....babies all over the ground. No nest anymore. Idk if there will be a spawn anymore. We'll have to wait and see. If not, I will still be breeding this pair. I'll just have to re-condition them.

I hope so...I was REALLY looking forward to this spawn...it looks rather small, though.

Even though they fall out of the nest they will still survive. As long as there are no predators and I would not attempt to reintroduce the father to the nest at this time as he may begin to eat the fry. Just keep the water clean and begin feeding them when they start swimming.

All of the babies are dead. I will be reconditioning starting later tonight. Sorry for keeping you guys waiting on the update. I just got really busy these last couple of days.

Really?? What the heck happened?

Taking the male out after the babies hatch (even though they may not be swimming yet) does not put them at risk of perishing. Water parameters change??
