    Hey folks,

    My 10gal tank just went through a mini cycle without too much trouble. However me being my paranoid self, I thought my four White Cloud Mountain Minnows' eyes were bulging a little. So I decided to ask you guys for a check-up since I'm still fairly new to the hobby.

    I have a few pictures below (captured with my phone), I can get my hands on a better camera if they are too grainy.

    Thanks in advance.

    They seem ok to me but I think you're going to be a daddy before long.

    Yup, she's egg laden

    Their colours look great, so I don't think health is a problem.....got any torpedo shaped boys in there to fertilize the eggs? If not, they'll just stay fat looking

    I used to have two males, but I had to euthanize them when a strain of Columnaris hit the tank a few months ago. Before they died, though, about 8-10 fry popped up..I couldn't make any infusoria in time and they didn't seem to like the crushed fish-food so they ended up dying. :'c
    Is it safe for the eggs to stay there for who knows how long?

    It didn't hurt my four when I had them. They just stayed fat looking. I think they just release eggs if un mated?
