If you are able to take the gravel out, I highly recommend you do so. Not only does it make it easier for the male to pick the eggs up, but it helps to have a bare bottom tank when raising the fry. The water stays cleaner and is easier to maintain. When raising fry you really want the water parameters to be basically perfect so they can develop properly. If you end up with deformed fry you will have to cull (kill) them.

Yeah, I decided to just re-start on them. I'm re-conditioning them now and I just cleaned out the tank. No gravel, just some floating plants and a heater.
Is a filter necessary? Or can I just clean the tank with a siphon? All I have is a filter that sticks to the side of a tank- no power filters.
