Can you tell us more about your spawning setup and the breeders...age, how conditioned etc......as detailed as possible.....

Sometimes you will get eggs eaters because something is wrong with the eggs and sometimes it can be due to new breeders or being disturbed in some way can also cause them to eat eggs.....I would recondition and try again....some breeder may take 2-3 spawning attempts before you are successful and sometimes you have to artificial hatch

well it was with my crowntail pair. Pit and Aqua Marina. I conditioned them basically all the time. they were in a 10g tank half filled with some plants in it. all the ammonia nitrites nitrates pH and everything were fine. I do not know how old they are, but are probably young cause they are small. This was their 1st time. But i was taking pics so could that have bothered them

Well its okay for first timers.. You don't have to worry at all.. there's always a second time for the pair.. but if the second time fails.. then its time to choose another pair..

Remember to recondition the pair for two weeks before your next attempt!
