Removed daddy, but he fought me about it, hes upset, and he also spit out 3 fry when i cupped him so i tried to carefully baste them back into the tank, hes adjusting in his floating cup atm to his own tank. When i pulled him/rotting plant out i saw 6 scatter so i guess they are hiding in the plants :P carefully added some duckweed to the surface and hoping for the best, that i didnt disturb them too much. The numbers do seem low but hopefully they are hiding. Checked water levels and all seems well chemically, and temp is 82 with clear wrap on top so heres hoping =x
I dont think any are stuck in the gravel but when i clean i guess i will just poke the gravel area and syphen up then double check my bucket, at least its black gravel, eaiser to spot them in it.
