I found 5 fry that hatched! I've sucked them out of the original cup and put them in another. I have a third cup sitting idle and I have many other that I can add into the tank. I'm so excited! I"m hoping at least half of the eggs hatch, I'd even take a fourth or heck an eighth. YAY! I probably wont get pics up until tomorrow.

Ok so last night I did have 5 fry hatch but I only saw one of them move. Since waking up only one of them is still moving. No new ones have hatched. I am going to give them a full 72 hours to hatch (so tomorrow around 4 I'm calling it). I'll give the fry I have every chance to grow big and strong but I'm probably going to start conditioning a new pair shortly after.

Still no new babies. its well past 40 hours now. I think this was a bust, again. I have one fry but I'm going to keep him in the cup a while. I"m going to move him and his cup into the 20 so I can give the tank another 80-100% water change and start conditioning the next pair. I don't know who to try though.
Popcorn HM obviously but who with? Patrick HM is kinda old (I've had him for a year) but he's maintaining a bubble nest. Black Beard CT is who I'm leaning towards but is there any side effects to an HM x CT? or Dizzy HMPK dragon scale but he's a bit on the small side. He may be too young but he is definitely the youngest and probably healthiest. I'll make a thread and ask the forum's populace and include a poll

My one guy it still alive and kicking. I gave him his first feeding of microworms today. Little guy is going to get fat being the only one eating. I'm trying to use the smallest amount I can but that's really hard.

I'm so glad to hear that he/she is still alive. Here's looking foreward to at least one beautiful fry.

lol We'll see. Chances are against me but that doesn't stop me from trying. I'll try to get a picture of him/her

I know, I had a spawn that produced 3 fry, and none of them made it. Sometimes it works, sometimes it doesn't. I still hope for the best of luck to you and your fry.
