Well no babies . I think he must have swallowed the eggs somewhere along the way. I'm feeding more to hopefully increase the chances of him holding them full term after the next breeding. That should occur within the next 2 weeks according to what I've read. Will update when I notice any spawning activity. At least I know what to watch for now.

I bet they are. I subscribed to your thread ao hope to get time to read it tonight. My male's coloring is getting really dark. I'm wondering if that happens when it gets close to spawning time again. Do you know?

there really isnt much to read in my threads. but thanks for the interest. as far as the coloring... i have no idea. i am just an enthusiast that got lucky. i have read between 2 weeks to a month between spawning. good health and good food will work wonders. the lfs guy said to isolate the male from the female for two weeks minimum and feed both well. then reintroduce. sorry i dont know more for you. nutamar continues to be a god send .

they are doing well. its been 3 weeks now? not a single loss. just for giggles and to see how they would do, we put 2 in sweetie pies 40 gallon breeder saltwater aquarium. this is their second day there and seem to be doing well.

ive tried to get them to eat pellets from new life spectrum. but they just ignore it. ive tried mixing it in with the nutramar ova and just by its self with no luck.

the smallest one is now half an inch long. the biggest is around 5/8th of an inch. still too small for mysis or frozen brine.
