    There used to be a Clown Loach in the tank. He has been traded in but as you would expect he went for the eggs. The male BN abandoned them and wouldn't look after them even though the Clown was gone.

    I have them sitting in a 2ft tank with a 600l/h pump and spraybar. They are placed directly under the spraybar.

    The tank is also sitting under a towel to prevent direct light from hitting the eggs.

    Further reading on bnworld provides that the white eggs are infertile and must be disposed of. This has now been done although it is not easy to pluck a fews eggs out from the batch

    Haha, one day when I complete my studies and have moved out. Until then, I believe the phrase would be, over my parents dead bodies.

    The 2ft is a very temporary thing. Once they are free swimming they will be joining the other fry.

    If they spawn again in 2 weeks I will let them try to raise it.

    Yes they are! At the moment I do a 20% every 2 days.

    There are two small Amazon Swords which were in my main tank and the filter is a 700l/h canister that is packed with ceramics.

    Update time:

    14th Feb - approximately 30-40 eggs were laid in a PVC cave. These were subsequently abandoned due to attack by Clown Loach. Clown relocated permanently. Eggs removed and placed in 2ft (half-filled) tank with HJ-752 filter and spray-bar. Placed in the path of the bubbles. No substrate in the tank.

    15-17th - Lost half the eggs. Fertilization issues. Removed as many as possible to prevent ammonia spike.

    18th @17:15 - fry are hatching. The count reveals anywhere between 15-20 fry. Prime used to drop nitrates etc. 20ml dose into 35l of water.
