Severum Cichlid eggs questions please!!!!
My severums lay eggs often. Days later they are usually gone. Im not sure if they were ever fertilized. They laid eggs about 6-7 days ago. Not usual for the eggs to remain this long. I dont know anything about egg cycles etc. I did see one of the severums pick up an egg and move it higher on the coral they laid them on. Any articles I can read? Can anyone tell me ways to figure out if they are fertilized eggs or not? They now have a fuzzy sort-of appearance, for lack of better words... cottony looking. They are not perfectly round anymore. Almost looks like cream-colored mold grew on top of the eggs. It does look like there is something, a very small black something, sticking out of a couple eggs that were moved. Almost looks like a little flagella or a tail. I do have a quarantine tank, but the levels are quite right yet.
So, question is.. what do I do now? Wait and see? Or move them?
Thanks so much
I love these severum, and babies would be so great!
FYI... 90 gallon tank
QT is 20 gal.
