German blue rams...

I have a breeding pair of GBR (bought from YUNITE) and they have indeed spawned however, the male is acting super protective! He is not letting any fish (even the female) get close to the eggs. Is this normal? Or is he not really chasing her, just courting?? Help!

It's normal for the male to be protective over his eggs. You have a few rummy-nose tetra together with your breeding rams, best option is to remove the eggs because I had a very similar situation to you. I have a heavily planted 40gallon with 40~50 cardinal and rummy-nose tetra, they ate all of my fries within 3 days (my GBRs are very good parents too).

Update! Eggs have now developed eyes (black dots). We'll see if my mom is up to the challenge of raising them! x)
