My 1st Spawn Log

I have 2 pairs that I got from Karen and last week I decided I would go for it after 2 weeks of conditioning Romeo and Violet. The spawning went great, they were very gentle with each other but he chased her off early(she was still full of eggs) and then about 2 hours after I removed her he had eaten all the eggs. I left him in there for 2 days hoping maybe he had moved them or at least a couple survived but there were none so I decided I would finish conditioning my other pair(Valentine and Rose) and try with them. They started spawning at 8:00 pm on the 15th and today there are fry
I'm still afraid to get to excited after what happened before but as far as I can tell Valentine is being a really good dad.
Here are some pictures of Valentine, Rose, the nest with eggs, some of the eggs after he moved them and tried to give me a heart attack, and the fry.

Oh my gosh! I'm so excited for you...I had to chuckle because the sibs I have here are such babies to me no where near ready to spawn (or so I thought) lol......I don't usually spawn them this young because of showing but it is nice to see they spawned for you!

Good luck with the babies...The parents are looking lovely!

Beautiful! These guys remind me of my 1st import pair I had gotten several years back. Sadly they did nothing for me, but I can see where I may be able to find more :) YAy!

Thanks everyone :)
I wish my camera took better pictures so I could put some up of the fry today. There are a bunch of them right close to the front glass but when I take pics they are just blurs and Valentine let me know loud and clear earlier that he didn't want me pointing my camera at his babies by getting one and taking it all the way to the back of the nest after just one picture and I definitely don't want to stress him out. I'm hoping that I can get some decent pics of the fry when they are free swimming and they aren't blending in with the nest.
