I know it's not the best pic, will try to get a better one tonight or tomorrow but I believe those clear specs are eggs because the female is hovering over that spot constantly. I'm setting up a 10g tonight because I was gonna breed shrimp but I can out the eggs in there if needed. So, what do I do to take care of these suckers? Lol

Ok so today I looked and she definitely laid more eggs. The female just hover in that spot and I can see little eggs or fry. The naja grass is so thick I can't get a clear picture though. She also chases any fish that wanders by off as well. So basically, what do I do to care for these babies?

Are they the white specs? I have them all over two of my tanks with GBR breeding pairs in them but, the when they laid eggs, the eggs look completely different.

not so sure if those are gbr eggs. When gbr lay eggs they dont tend to scatter them around like that. Instead they are typically focused to one particular spawning spot.
