Lol that's how many they picked up to put in the nest. I highly doubt that's how many are in it! I'm sure they had a few for a snack haha.

Here's the nest with a few of the eggs circled for those who can't spot them that well!



Grrr.. I'm trying to fix the photo, but it's not working. I'll figure it out later!

Oh lol i like her i have a crowntail female and she spawned with my halfmoon male but it took her a few hours for her to stop swimming around like a mad man she was all like come on big boy woo me. He did not like it he finaly caught her and wrapped her for like 5 minutes and was like im not sure if i should let go or if it was now if i let you go are you gonna swim away again. lol dont worry im sure everything will be ok.

Sad morning :( I went to check on the daddy with his babies... he ate the whole nest! There are a few eggs lying on the bottom of the tank... but other than that I don't see signs of anything in the few remaining bubbles. :(

Are you sure he didn't move them? I have never had an egg eater......Is he fat and bloated?

He's a little more plump than usual, and I don't see any other spots where the eggs could be. Oddly he is still guarding the eggs on the tank bottom...

Just let him be.....He is a young male.....He'll get the hang of it.....This is not uncommon for a 1st spawn.....The eggs he ate may no have been fertilized.....This happened with my red spawn last weekend.....A lot of eggs but only 10-15 fry made it to hatching.....

When did they spawn?

I agree that most may not have been fertilized. Even though they got the embrace down after a while, she dropped a lot of eggs without being near him! I expected a low turnout... I'm proud of them anyways!

They spawned over the course of 4 hours yesterday starting at about noon.
