Well, all the fry disappeared. I woke up on sunday morning to find no fry in the tank and two very aggresive males chasing the female everywhere. My only guess is that the wrigglers became free swimming overnight and were immediately eaten by the tetras. In fact I think I saw a tetra munching on something. Well I had to remove one of the rams because he was harrasing the female too much. Next time I will remove the fry while they are wrigglers. Why is the male attacking the fermale so much??

with the above you might be able to keep the female in the net or divider so the male will keep away from her so shes protected to,:19:

Oh Ed!! I'm so sorry all your fry are gone! That is sad! I hope they males calm down. Don't know what might be going on there.
