Very cool. Make sure you get some food for them. Either baby brine shrimp, microworms, or something. crushing up NLS just didn't do it for mine.

They have been hiding out for the last 2 days and the female has really gotten bright yellow. I'm pretty sure I'll see a spawn in the next day or two. But, I'm not getting my hopes up.

The babies should be fine with the filter, but you will want to use a sponge or mesh over the intake. They'll stay low in the tank for quite awhile after they go free-swimming. Even with no extra effort, a few are likely to make it through and the parents get better at parenting as they mature more.

Just found a flashlight and looked into the bottom of the pot (hope that doesn't upset mama too much) and saw the eggs! I'd say around 20-25! Hopefully I'm not a complete failure
