It would have been a bad egg anyway. He wouldn't toss a viable egg.
Just you wait- as soon as the fry are free swimming she'll be back in there laying more eggs! You'll be over run with the little cuties!

Cripes!! That's a lot of babies! Terrifies me to be honest! I have 5 babies (donated by a friend who had hundreds), and I'm thinking of rehoming 4 of them to prevent babies happening when they get bigger. I'm overstocked as is!

Too cute, love the food presentation! Like a tiered wedding cake!

Awesome, that's an excellent diet and they should be a decent size in no time I scooped up all of my Juvies when mine bred and put them in a breeder box hanging on the tank. They didn't have to compete for food and grew quite big in the first month

I left mine with daddy but banished momma. After about a month I transferred half the fry to another tank to allow room for growth. Then in another tank BNP started spawning- it was getting out of control! I had to take away everybody's spawning caves to settle things down. I've been giving BNP away ever since, and taking 50-60 at a time to a couple of different lfs. I still have about 20 I'm going to give away when I break down my 200L tank and get my 700L tank up and running. I have a beautiful short finned marble male (who has proven to be an excellent daddy with strong healthy fry) and a gorgeous long finned marble female (who hasn't got a look in because she isn't the alpha female) that I am going to transfer in hopes that they will breed. Then I will be able to use the 200L tank as a grow out tank from which I can SELL the fry

Every single one of the fry. My batch was closer to 40 (young pair). After they grew a bit (2-3 gallon breeder box, don't remember) I moved them to my 15 where they grew even more, before eventually selling them to my lfs.
