I guess the FedEx man also doubles as the stork.
Congratulations on the eggs. Even if they are only a trial run, now you know you've got at least two fish in love.

It's not all that uncommon for that to happen. When I got my 4 pairs of GBR's in the mail, two pairs spawned in under a week. Another spawn went by for each of the four pairs and then a week later 3 pairs spawned at the same time and the fourth was an hour later. That was pretty cool to see. I think it is the change in water temp that makes them do this when they come in the mail like that.

I noticed in the pic that there were few eggs laid close together which means you probably took a pic after most of them were eaten. Usually they lay a decent amount of eggs in a really small amount of space. I took a pic once and opened it with MS paint and erased the eggs one by one for a count... I got over 450 of them. They will most likely lay eggs for you every week or so, so you may want to prepare for that. I am about to take a spawn out of my 55 gallon tank and try to hatch them in my 10. Even bought some brine shrimp eggs in hopes of successfully raising them longer than the 5 days past free swimming as is my best so far. Congratulations BTW.

they can be very picky fish when it comes to water quality. What type of tetras do you have?

I'd say yes if you have some small unagressive tetras.

Oh, this is strictly pre-set up... in the planning stages..
But yeah, they're non-aggressive..
