help quick, possible babies on the way.

I came home to find one of my female peacocks with a mouth full of eggs. anyone know how to build a bubbler to put them in. anyone have any advice? I would like to raise them and see how they turn out. thinking about grabbing a 10 gallon tank tomorrow to use for them to hatch.

I think that you might have to leave the eggs in the females mouth for a while before you can take them out!

I wouldn't remove the female from the community or you risk letting her spit the eggs by accident.
Moutbrooding fry are usually safe from predation compared to fry bred through pits, caves, etc.

yeah, my brother inlaw is going to come and help me take care of them. he is going to milk her tomorrow or the next day as he has been breeding soluci (sp?) and dempseys for 8-10 years now.
