Ahh.....I thought perhaps they would die without access to the surface...I've seen several fry look as if they're taking a breath...I suppose I'll have too look a little more into it, but if the fry can survive at the bottom until they can swim on their own then I won't worry so much :)

Wally has since re=constructed a good portion of the bubble nest and so long as I don't go over and distract him hes attention to pick up babies and put them back...but they just keep falling, and there really are TONS ^^; Poor guy....

I use a Pentax...exact model/make I couldn't say, can't seem to find anything else on it and goodness knows where the box has ended up by now >.<; Though its not as good as my dads Nikon....if I knew where that was I'd be snapping shots with it and instead, the pictures come out a LOT better xD

Alright, little update....went and researched and found a few places that said the babies should be fine on the bottom until their swim bladders develop and that the labyrinth organ doesn't develop until later, which is interesting to know xD A lot more seem to be swimming around now too, spiraling up and down, and daddy is attempting.... and failing...to keep them in the nest. Its actually very cute ;)

Come to think of it, I think I read that the labrinth organ doesn't develop for a few days.He may be reconstructing the nest to move them there.

I think I read that it didn't start to develop for a few weeks O.o; Hmm....well, they're okay now, and whats what really matters :)

Well what happened was the nest broke apart a little(may have been partly my fault when I stuck my hand in, and the gradenza the tank is on shakes a little if my brother is running around or something....)and at first he was just letting it go, but hes built it back up now ;)

Thanks! :)

I've only been able to get access to BBS and Egg yoke, so I'll be using those this time 'round.
