Hmmmm...IDK.

I think you're paranoid, since most missing scales and finnage issues occur after spawning.

If he has a nest you should release them and see if they spawn.

Ok so your good for about a day or so, since brine shrimp take a while to hatch. I reccomend you have two hatcheries going at all times (one started 12 hours after the first).

If you spawned in a half filled ten gallon tank, and you have a filter, you shouldn't have to change the water until the fry are two weeks old.
To change the water use an airline tubing as a siphon with an air stone attached to the end. You won't hurt fry this way. Take out 50% of the water and replace twice as much. For a half filled ten gallon take out 2.5 gallons and replace five gallons. The water you are replaceing MUST BE THE SAME TEMPERATURE AS THE SPAWNING TANK!!!!
