Thanks for the tips Indjo. I think I will try him again but probably not until later in the year. I can do spawns in the winter because my entire operation is done indoors so my tanks are heated. I'm also going to be on the look out for a different female who may be a better match for him. Hopefully if I try a smaller tank, etc I'll be more successful with him.

Well... its been over 48 ours and I see no wigglers. I'm pretty much positive that this spawn was a failure.

I found this at Bettysplendens this morning. It's an article detailing a way to hatch without a male present. Maybe it'll help next time. Anyway, it was interesting.

Too bad!!! He would have had gorgeous babies... :(

Do you think the eggs could have been infertile?

Thanks VG I've been meaning to read that article but haven't gotten around to it yet.

I think there is a good possibility the eggs either had fungus (although they looked perfectly fine to me) or they weren't fertilized. Like I said before this pair was very.. awkward. They didn't spawn for very long and there was only one good embrace that I saw (13 eggs), the rest only yielded 4-7 eggs a piece. While I didn't condition Ada specifically, while Jane and Rio were being conditioned everyone was being fed frozen so for two weeks pretty much all my fish got conditioned. I don't think that was the problem. With two unsuccessful spawns, however, I probably won't try these guys as a pair again.

I really like Rio and I really like Ada. I'm hoping I can maybe get my hands on a marble sib pair to breed and then breed the male to Ada and the female to Rio as well so I don't lose their genetics.
