Is that the male in your avatar? They are both gorgeous! I hope they spawn, too. I'm curious as to what their babies will look like.

Well after I took out the female I thought the male was just fixing the nest, but he was looking for eggs to stuff his fat belly instead. I took out him since he is a bad father. Right now i'm putting in my other male to see if he will take care of the eggs or eat it like the real father. Right now currently have 8 eggs left unless there are more hidden. I lost like 25 eggs so far. Yes the male is my avatar. BAD DADDY!!!!

Did you by chance accidentally bump/disturb the nest when you were removing the female? Anyway, I think it increases the chances of a male eating the eggs if you disturb the nest. My fish's great great grandfather was a proven breeder and great father, but one time I accidentally disturbed the nest removing the female and he ate every single egg!

Well when i turn on the lamp to check the eggs he went crazy, so I did distrub him. My other spawn the male doesn't mind the bright light but this one seems to be distrub by the bright light. I'm just going to leave my eggs in there with the temperature at 82* and see if they hatch.

I don't think I will artificially hatch them because my last attempt fail. Probably next time when I get another spawn from this male I will attempt to do artificially hatching.

Not 100% sure yet if that black plantium male is a egg eater. It was probably my fault he ate them next time I spawn him again I won't turn on the bright light and be more careful with remover of the female. On the other hand I spot 1 lone survivor baby fry hopefully there more.
