Well you can try them again in 1 week - 2 week. Next time you should probably remove your male after they mate.

Yeah I'm not going to try again until after I move (2 weeks). Should I put an airstone under the bubble nest so it's easier for the fry to stay in the nest without the father?

How big is the tank your using? If your airstone bubble isn't too strong you could try putting it under the nest.

The tub is pretty big, I put at least 10 gallons in. I have a control know hooked up to the airstone too so that's adjustable

What I did was put mine close to the nest and the current kept some of the eggs from being fungus. So now I probably have like 6 black planitum fry. As long as you see that there are some current going on in the spawn tank that will keep fungus off some of them.

What temperature do you keep your spawn tank at? My first spawn with dragon I had them at 76 because it was the wal-mart heater auto temp. The first dragon spawn had like 13 fry but non of them became free swimmer so i'm thinking its probably the temperature. But now days I used a different heater and have it at 84 and they been hatching better and become free swimmer much sooner.

I had the tank at between 82 and 84 degrees. I will definitely try that with the next spawn. Thank you!
