I put shark back in the sorority, and it was calmer, no tail biting, but still hectic. Then last night about 8 pm when i was feeding them , I saw it!!!!
I have eggs! Shark is a male, and he mated with blue. I only saw the last time.
Shark must be a placket too. His hangy down fins in front are short just like the girls. I pulled out the girls and all the fake stuff in there, and all but one snail, its too close to the nest.
I left him the eggs and her in there, but no more mating. I pulled her out at about 2:30 am. I read that when mating is over the male will kill the female. Since it had been hours since i saw them mating, I assumed it was over.
Lastnight I decided to give the eggs, not many, a chance, but as I lay there trying to go to sleep, I realized that was so dumb. I dont have any food for them, nor any room. I decided to take them out this am, and again, I couldnt bring myself to do it!
I cannt buy a 20 because there are none in my area. But i can buy another 10 for the sorority. Leave the eggs in the one they are in, and put the now 3 males in the ten. Or 2 in the ten, and one in the 4, which was to be the plant, snail, qt tank, always ready.
Oh well, I doubt the little guys will live, but today, the eggs that I can see do look real. He didnt make a nest, but used the leaves on the floating island for his nest. The eggs are tucked into a leaf, curled over another leaf.
He is such a good father. Too bad there arent more eggs.
