There were two spawnings as you know. The second set of eggs have been developing; yesterday morning when I went in, they were all gone. I've no idea if they all hatched, or (more likely) something got them during the night. Almost 3 weeks there were eggs on the glass with the male guarding them. If they did hatch, the fry presumably would be down among plants somewhere.
Today I noticed a very rotund female on that same glass, with the male close by, so I am thinking another spawning is in the offing.
I also have interesting behaviour among the Characidium fasciatum, one of the fish is very rotund, presumably a female, and "she" has been interacting quite a lot with two of the thinner presumably-male fish. Lots of what I call sparring--very fast darting at each other, spinning around, sidling up, etc.
