How/why does a female decide to drop her eggs?? I wonder...
I am thinking the same thing. The only thing I can think of ,because I saw it happen once, was they like to hang out on my sponge filter and the eggs must have been pulled from the belly...so I turned it off and later saw she had picked them up again. (not unless I saw another preg RCS) Now I have 2 loads of babies laying on my substrate. I guess I will turn down my filter and see if there are any changes.
