Interesting, I knew females sometimes built nests, but I didn't know they would put eggs in the nest. I though only the males did that. I don't think it would hurt to leave them after all they aren't fertilized so no chance of them hatching. Thanks for sharing! Learn something new every day!

So I go to feed my babies for the night and look what I found! Velvet, in her own little tank, 3 feet away from the nearest male did the same thing! There us a bubble nest in the middle of her tank and there are eggs in it. She even looks chunky. total hahahaha moment. Even my bf was a little confused. I love the pic, she's looking at me like "whaaatt??"
