36 hours after spawning the fry have hatched.. they are now constantly falling out of the bubblenest and now dad goes into a work frenzy. For the next 48 - 72 hours he will work non-stop putting the fry back into the bubblenest as they fall down to the bottom.. he will not be fed, he will take no breaks, not even a bathroom break.. in fact i have not seen him poop once since the eggs have been spawned.. unless he ate it.. yikes... he is a very devoted father! and for that I am glad.. i have read a few stories of bad dads!

here are the new babies

I may have underestimated the number of eggs there was... more and more are hatching every hour and its getting quite hectic in there.. the bubblenest has gotten HUGE! it almost covers the entire half of the 10 gallon tank, so i just had to make another video lol.

here they are again a few hours after the previous vid

Awesome videos!! Your male is gorgeous! He's running his little fins off taking care of that huge nest of fry. He's being a good daddy.

Haha yes he WAS a good father until he ate half of them! its actually my fault for not providing them with enough hiding space, but I still have alot of babies! and these guys actually seem to be growing faster than my first spawn... since I have mastered hatching BBS these guys have been fed mainly BBS and not so much microworms... but anyways here they are at 3 weeks old!
