;D ;D
im so excited i have hundreds of jack dempsey fry, i was wondering why 2 of my JD's never came out of there cave and why they were so aggresive ...then all of a sudden a huge school of fry came out of the cave and all the other fish were trying to eat them but lucky i was there and was able to take out all the other fish....so now i have a empty 55 gallon and a 30 gallon with 2 JD's and there fry.. when the fry get bigger ill put them back in the 55 gallon.....woohooo

My JDs laid eggs yesterday. What might I expect? They dug out a hole in the gravel over two-three days, then suddenly a blessed event. There are hundreds of eggs most dull gray but some shiny. There is a clearly mated pair, and two "also ran" fish who are contained on the other side of the tank.

Do I need to worry that the fish will eat the eggs? SHould I continue to change water as usual? Anything different about feeding?
What do I do with hundreds of fish?

i'm sure i read somewhere about attaching (with an elastic band i guess) chopped down womens tights (pantihose is it you call them in the US?) over the intake on the filter. i've never had fry, so not tried this, but sounds feasible?! - you may get some interesting looks at the shop when you buy them!!
