You only need then blue if you remove the eggs otherwise they should care for them enough to prevent the mold

If they are tank breed and your water isn't to hard they should be okay. Just give them time and they might breed nothing you can do to force them.

The eggs are gone today. Oh well, they will get it right sometime.

Finally, I got a photo of our new wild Apisto agassizi male. His lady friend is hot too but I haven't gotten a pic of her yet.... She's nice and yellow so cross your fingers!

Okay, and they will breed when they are ready. Just keep the water clean and feed them good food and hopefully they will breed for you.

I feed cobalt flakes, and new life spectrum pellets. Also feed blackworms and bloodworms occasionally.
