Female was removed about 7 yesterday evening. I came back from dinner to find her hiding again and displaying horizontal stripes. She is now in a 2.5 qt at about 80 degrees. She had a few tears, so I put in a dose of aq salt. From what I can tell neither Greeny nor Bellino have any major injuries, just a few superficial rips here and there. Greeny is eating fine in her qt and acting normally. She ate some microworms last night, and today she had some more microworms as well as some NLS micro pellets. Will do 100% water change tomorrow.

I also gave Bellino a few microworms, though he was wary to go get them as he didn't want to leave the nest. He had to do a few double-takes to make sure the nest was safe, and then he quickly swam down for the wormies lol.

As for the nest, a few of the upper foamy bubbles have popped, but the nest is still strong and I can see the eggs. Temp is at 84 degrees, but lowers to about 83-82 during the night once the heat from the sun is gone. The tub gets a good amount of diffused sunlight.

Hoping to see them hatch soon. Most sites say within 24-48 hours, but that seems so fast!

Thanks! It is my first time so I am super excited. I have been having moments where I am like Yay! Babies! and others where I am like Oh no! Babies! What am I gonna do! But all in all I am super excited, although not about all the water changes :P
