attempt 2

I posted a little while ago about Frances and Isabella. Frances ended up eating those eggs, so I reconditioned and started over.

Results have been outstanding. They began embracing when I got out of work around 1:30 and I've been watching since.

I'm posting from my cell currently but I will provide details when I can get wi fi!

Thanks!

Frances has been carefully watching his nest, moving eggs around, etc. I'm sick due to the heat but I'm so excited I can't sleep! I keep checking the nest between fits of nausea as if things change that quickly, haha.

I've got a lot of little swimmers, and Frances is picking them up and putting them in their nest. Such a good father! :) This is very exciting. They're so tiny and cute. I could watch them all night. :)

The fry are mostly putting themselves back into the nest now. Hope that means they'll be healthy and strong!
A question though: I was planning on starting 50% water changes when the fry are 10 days old. Is this correct?
Also, start feeding when they are free swimming and remove the father at that time as well?
Just want to make sure I'm doing the best thing for the babies!

As soon as I find the cable for my camera and some wi fi I will post pics. I've been snapping a few every day but the flash seems to annoy Frances so they're mostly dark & blurry haha.
