View Full Version : Pink Albino convicts - Help appreciated

01-06-2008, 08:00 AM
Couple of days ago, my Pink Albino convicts have laid around 15 eggs in a cup, which I had kept in the corner of my tank.

My question is, the eggs have not yet hatched, is it advisable to separate the cup and keep it in a separate bowl for the safety of the fries, when they are hatched?

Appreciate a response. Thanks in advance.

Convicts will take up to a week to hatch and also convicts are great parents and can stay in with their kids. my striped convicts atm have a spawn of about 100 and the parents adore them. just a warning DO NOT I REPEAT DO NOT PUT YOUR HAND IN THE TANK. THE CONVICTS WILL BITE YOU NO MATTER WETHER THEIR TRAINED OR NOT. give it about a month befoe moving or doing anything in the tank. even then it is risky

yep, as mentioned above, dont touch the eggs. i bought a pregnant white pink convict and put it with my oscar, not knowing it was pregnant, and when it laid eggs it took on my oscar in a fight and almost won
