I will do a partical water change tonight and then again probably Tuesday. I'll take out as much as I can so that the eggs still stay under the water. It'll stil lbe 10-15%. The tank is planted, so that will help keep the water clean as well.

No, they don't fully hatch for 7 days. Today being 48 hours, I should see little wiggles coming from the eggs, but they will still be attached to the leaf. At this point, they will look like little tadpoles. I'll check it out when I get home!

Well, they made a delicious snack for my rummynose tetras once they were discovered. Man, they love caviar!! Oh well. The female is already looking mighty plump again, so we could have more eggs soon. This Saturday we are doing the change over from the 55g to the 120g. Maybe they'll have a better chance in there, but its doubtful in a community tank. Still a very cool experience though!!

You mean 100% 2 times a day? =P


Anyways, sorry to hear they didn't make it. :( My first few times breeding angelfish (when I didn't take them out), the angelfish moved the babies to a different location once they hatched. Maybe they moved them? ;(

Nope, I personally witnessed the rummy's having a feast. That's how I know they were the culprit..haha. They did make it to the wiggling stage where I saw tiny tales moving about, but that was the end of it. Tomorrow my husband and I are taking down the 55g and putting the 120g in its place. Maybe the fry will have a better chance of surviving in a much larger tank. We shall see.

Not yet. But after my water change a couple days ago, they started breeding behavior again. I wouldn't be surprised if I saw another clutch of eggs in the coming days
