what's a pipet?

Also i cleaned the glass (outside) with some windex, and as i was wiping it off, noticed little hair like strings or something. I thought from the paper towel... on closer inspection they are alive! Little worms or something. Should i be worried?

I wouldn't clean the floor unless there's a lot of left over food. Or at least wait until they're free swimming. Partial egg eaters are often fry eaters too. So try not to disturb him in anyway until it's time to remove him.

I wouldn't worry about any wormy critters. In fact most worm will become food for the fry.

Congrats on the spawn. Hope you'll have fry soon.

just got home to find he's stopped returning eggs to the nest... he's pretty much not even building on the nest anymore, yet he still sits underneath it. What should i do?

Also he is now quite fat, i can only assume from eating eggs...

so frustrating, he is picking them up, then he swims under the cup where very little bubbles remain, and then spitting them out, where they just sink again. And i can see movement from some of them.

i think i'm being overly jumpy. I'm thinking there are hatched eggs on the bottom. He's trying to pick them up but there are loose fry for sure.

Also in addition to having the tiny worms i appear to have Daphina in there again. So if they make it to be free swimming they should have no troubles.

And i have Blue Green Algae in it, again... and it's on my moss ball.

Picked up some brine shrimp eggs today. Lots of fry, not a ton like the other logs but enough i can't count. They are so tiny daddy looks like a monster near them. Lost a few that probably drowned because they swam too far away. My male isn't real big on blowing bubbles for them to hang onto.

So here's a vid from yesterday of loose fry:

Didn't realize that after they hatched they left broken eggs everywhere. Gave him fits but under the cup is pretty clear now.

And here's the female, she stress stripes too fast and i had to flash to get a pic. Mostly she's dark on her body and the red is more vivid than the picture shows. She was missing that bit of tail before she went in and her ventrals were also short, the rest of the tearing is from him, but i think she got off easy.
