Ugh.. I think Rio ate all the eggs.. I can't see ANY in the nest. Yesterday I could see a bunch of eggs on the edge of the aquarium. Today I can see no eggs. I've tried looking from the top, bottom, with a flashlight (..in a box, with a fox,...) but I can't see any eggs.

I'm going to leave him in there for a while but if I don't see any tail down babies by tomorrow night I'm retiring him from breeding.

In a box, with a fox.... LOL!!! I'm sorry. He's just not a good Daddy I guess. Maybe he's just not ready for a serious relationship. Perhaps he would like to play video games all day and hang out with his boys. Maybe next summer he'll be better.

I'm afraid next summer he'll be too old. He's just a butt head. I told him I'm feeding him to the cat because he's bad.

I really hope my Mom surprises me with money for a pair for my birthday. I want another good breeding this year.

Me too! LOL. He's probably all "Aw Mom... you know I'm not like other guys... I'm nervous and my socks are too loose."

Sorry about your misfortune.

IMO Some HM are very bad breeders. But you should give Rio one more chance because he is too gorgeous to retire. Condition him for a month (.... if season change doesn't effect water temp too much). Try using very shallow water (5 - 8 cm) in a smaller tank (I often use 25 x 25 cm plastic containers for bad breeders) or you can use dark dividers for large tanks. Don't use lights (make it dark after 6pm), don't disturb him too much and use dark covers on the tank.

Before you breed him, make sure he is active - always moving. If water condition is ok, healthy eggs fertilized etc, even if he doesn't tend to the eggs, many will hatch and survive.
