In reguards to the camera, Yep that's the one. And what I mean is after you click and take a picture the recovery time to take the next one is not instant. You have to wait a second a two and if you take 4 in a row really fast it takes awhile -30sec+- to recover so you can take more.

But it does take great pics!

About the eggs and Bubblegum. I am feeling a little worried. He looks a little bloated but I am not sure why. I offer bits of food and he wont eat. I think that is because he is too busy tending the nest. Would he be bloated from eating eggs? Any idea... Here is his current look today. You can tell by comparison to all my other pics that he looks rounded and paler on his tummy now then he did on spawn day and before.

Any help is appreciated. I dont want him to die. :( Also he sometimes nudges up into the eggs really hard making some fall out, he catches them and puts them back. Is that normal behaviour?

he may be eating the eggs, or he may have eaten the food you put in. check if it is still there. but he might be eating the eggs. when males tending to a nest they eat the eggs to protect them which actually doesnt protect them. so when you moved the tank he may have eaten them. hope that he didnt.

There is still a ton of eggs under there. He isnt eating any food I give. My computer is right next to his tank so I can watch him now 24/7 since we have moved to the dining room table.

Ugh. Lets hope its JUST egg eating. I would rather him eat some eggs to clean it up then to die on me. :(

watch him like a hawk and if he catches an egg then doesnt spit it back into the nest then...... well he is probably eating eggs.

its not that hard. as long as you are diligent and repetitive on your feedings and water changes you will get a bunch of fry to live. maybe even more than you expected!did any hatch yet?!?!!
