White cloud minnow
 
I have a couple of them and I have seen the males start to court the females and the males try to establish breeding rights with their flaring to each other and chasing. This has been going on for about a week now.

I fed them some blood worms last night, the little piggys would have eaten them til they popped. This morning, I can see a noticeable difference in the plumpness of the females. I think there is a chance they spawned but I don't see any eggs. Are the eggs so small that they are hard to see or is it more likely they didn't spawn or just ate the eggs?

I'd guess they ate em. My danios spawn on a weekly basis (water change kicks off the behavior), and anything that makes it to the bottom they race around and stir up. I don't think white cloud eggs stick to anything either so you won't be able to see much without stirring up the gravel.
