I don't think you can do a water change for awhile yet. Someone can correct me if I'm wrong. Congrats!! How exciting!! :)

im just charging up my camera now and then i will load pix on.....lost a couple of eggs overnight but still a nice amount there,he hes moved them from being all over the bubblenest to just one little circle of them close to the heater lol.
learnt a couple of things for next time tho....i wont be spawning again in a tank with gravel.....just a glass bottem as he is having trouble finding the eggs if they drop

Yeah, they always recommend using a bare bottomed tank because its harder for the male to pick up the eggs with gravel.
