well here are some pictures. Mom seems to be keeping a good eye on the eggs and I wasnt ready for this spawn so I'm going to let nature take it's course and see how it goes, on the next round I'll remove the rock and put it in a 10 gallon to raise the fry in. the pictures arent great but if you look close you can see the eggs.

Good luck with them. I've had free swimmers from 2 pairs now and both times they have been eaten by the parents. If it ever happens again I'll do my best to remove the eggs and raise them myself.

Morgan, there is a little " mark with the + under it next to the "quote" button in each response. If you click the "+ buttons on whichever posts you want to respond to, and the "post reply", it'll bring up a screen where you can respond to multiple quotes/posts in one response.

Not sure if that made sense.

LOL I hear ya. We weren't ready either, didn't expect new rams to be spawning. We were really hopeful that our rams would be good parents but I guess they need more practice...
mine was seeming to do pretty good last night n this morning, how long before fry hatch? best food? Will the fry eat like cyclopeze or shoul;d I just try baby brine?
