I agree. I learned the hard way. Mr. V... most of my eggs have fallen to the bottom of the tank...do you think I should leave them alone?

leeb62.. i looked at the article.. thanks for sending it.. i may be able to hook up something similar, but the sponge filter I have is a little different than the one shown. If this spawn doesnt work I may have to try something else.. so any suggestions are welcome.

If the male is still with them then he should get his tail into gear and get to picking them up. Also the next spawn with this guy, try removing him and leave the female. More on this method:http://bettysplendens.com/articles/p...?articleid=889

I took the male out because he was eating the eggs. He has eaten all of the eggs the last 2 spawns.

Yeah dont mess with the tank after the parents are removed. Wait a good 24 hours after free swimming before doing anything. Note: A lot of eggs will fungus on the bottom so add some ani fungus meds.
