White cloud hovering

Dimmy

Hi guys, I think a couple of my white clouds are pregnant, I've been watching a male (I think) keep going inside the automent, when others go in their he chases them out.. white clouds are normally active so im unsure if the male is trying to fertilise eggs? Or attract the female in? I have neons and plecos in their also, should I separate the pregnant?

Would need better pictures of the full tank. Is your goal though to raise the fry? If so then separating the pregnant is probably a good idea. When I had WCM's I had a thickly planted tank and just let nature take it's course. Many fry were eaten, or were too weak/didn't get enough food, a couple would make it through each time and get full grown. Circle of life

Yes thankyou, my tank is only small and im still trying to set it up. I only got the WMC 1 week ago and they're already pregnant ..... I have more plants on the way so I think I'll have to do the same for now.. eventually when I get A bigger tank or another I'll raise all fry ...
