Finally Got My First Spawn!

After my first spawning attempt failed, I tried again with my wild pair. I supervised them yesterday for about 5 hours. I got home around 3 hours ago to find lots of eggs! There's probably 50-75 in the nest. I removed the female and the male is busy guarding the nest. Here's pics:

Eggs!!

If they're wild splendens why did you remove the female? Wild splendens pairs can be housed together.

Thanks for the posts. I didn't know they could be housed together, but he was getting pretty aggressive towards her and kept running her away from the nest. He will even flare at me if I walk by the tank. So far everything is going good and he hasn't eaten any eggs. Hopefully this spawn will turn out nice :)

Well, I was concerned because I saw tons of eggs laying at the bottom. The male kept putting them back, then more would fall. As I continued watching, I noticed the eggs began swimming back up to the nest. Then I realized they hatched! They are so cute! There's gotta be 100-200. I know they probably won't all make it to adulthood, but I still couldn't believe I had that many. Looks like this will be a nice, big spawn :)



I know that's not the best pic, but they are the little white dots all over the ground and the plants.

I was lucky enough with my dragon spawn in September to see the eggs hatch....It's hard to believe my giant fry used to be little white specks :P
