    Well... I now have more eggs in here.

    This spawn I watched them lay the eggs... about the same size spawn as before but this time they are all put together instead of a long line of eggs... so they ARE learning... Hopefully the babies will live a wigglers this time :confused:

    Sorry about the mispost a few posts up with my 125 on this thread BTW

    And thats a good thing! ;)

    Usually with Angels anyhow, if there are no eggs or fry present they will spawn every 5-9 days. If there is fry present every 3-4 weeks....

    Woke up this morning... and well... over half of the eggs are NOT fertile and turned white BUT.................. I have WIGGLERS

    I dont think they ate the last spawn... If you look at it, its just a few lines... this ones a cluster... I dont think the male fertilized the last spawn... any of them...

    So... the fun begins... about half of the fertile ones hatched and I expect the rest to hatch over the day!!!

    30-40 I would guess... if that
