New peakcock eel and new eggs

Pollini just laid another batch, hope these make it. They ate the last batch.

Whoa- how'd you get them to breed? I just Googled how to breed them and most things came up say it was very hard. Good luck!

Dumb luck probably. They are the only "large" fish in that tank and they seem to LOVE the black sand substrate. The female is constantly building nests.

Well we will see. I'm willing to take any advice on what to do if the eggs hatch this time and they don't eat them.

Ha! Well I thought all of the eggs had died but I just found 100 or so little wrigglers. I might actually manager to get some more pollini out of this batch of eggs.

I wonder what the best approach is for these guys. Should I just leave them be or take them and put them into a breeding basket?

Well I've taken a chance and moved the fry into another tank. We will see if that works or not. The parents are VERY unhappy with me.

Doing well at this point, still very early though. The fry in the empty tank are doing well and the fry I missed in the parent's tank are doing well too.
