It doesn't actually grow on anything, it starts to build up on the substrate and gets broken up by the rams. Then it drifts around the tank until it hangs up on a plant or wood and multiplies there. I have some pieces of marimo balls attached to driftwood, but it's all healthy.

I just separated 6 almost free swimming fry, I'm guessing that's all that is left now. I'm not sure what happened to the others.

So its only about 48 hours from eggs to wigglers? Or did I read this wrong. Also mine laid eggs again yesterday and its the male guarding the eggs. If he leaves the female chases him back to the eggs

Eggs hatch in 48-72 hours depending on the temp. The warmer the water the faster they hatch, but if it's too warm they develop too fast and the fry have lots of issues with an assortment of deformities, at least that's what I've noticed. I'm going to move the rams to another tank soon and I will be softening the water and seeing how big of a spawn I can get from them.

Here is a great article on breeding rams, it explains why it's so difficult to get fry most of the time. http://www.dwarfcichlid.com/Breeding_Blue_Rams.php

Have I expressed how ridiculously tiny these guys are? I've seen bigger fry from bettas.

Either hiding in the java moss or gone. I'm not sure which so I'm still feeding the tank with newly hatched daphnia and changing 10% daily.
