Ram eggs

I am SO excited! My rams have finally spawned. I have no idea if the eggs will hatch in my water, its pretty hard, but still! I didn't think they would ever do it. There are pictures in this thread... http://www.aquariumadvice.com/viewto...3378&start=320

Is there anything I can do to help them out? Can I do a water change without disturbing the happy family?

Congrats. Its great when an unplanned temperature change can aid the spawning process.

Best of luck with the eggs.. Very pretty long fin rams eh? Toooo COOL!

Just keep an eye on them (as well as the parents). Sit back and enjoy the results if they hatch out. I answered your question in the other thread.

The eggs are just around 32 hours old. There are way less today than there were last night. The ones that are still there are really hard to see. In one way they kinda look empty. But I can't tell if its that, or if they are just really close in color to the wood.

So long as they don't appear fuzzy or misshapen, I think you have some nicely fertlized eggs. I have my fingers crossed.

well, all the eggs are gone. I moved the plec out of the 55 and into my ten gallon tank because she was trying to eat the poor eggs. So I am going to move her back today, and the next time my rams get ready to spawn, I might try putting them into their own tank. It certainly was an adventure. Maybe next time I will get babies.
