Were they all white or just some? Will we still have little ones you think?

Just some were white. 9 yesterday morning. 12 by the night. Then I intruded on them
Woke up this morning and most of the 'outer layer' of eggs are white. But still so many little organgy/yellow eggs left. I'm on day 4 so I'm guessing if they start hatching tomorrow I might still have some babies I hope
Oh and today the male is fanning harder than ever but still won't eat any dead eggs. I'll get a pic for u all

So are those white eggs gonna destroy my batch?
And also, the good eggs are orange. Will they stay orange til the fry hatch or do they change color on a certain day?

They get darker before the hatch(unless golden albinos).

I followed my regular schedule for water changes.

Thanks man. U been a great help.
I decided to move all my tanks and fish around and I now have an Official breeding room
I have my pair of Angels in a 29g and my pair of bristlenose in my 10g.
I followed all instructions for moving dad and eggs, never took them out of water
Now dad is eating dead eggs and actually sitting on the eggs fanning them instead of at the mouth of his cave. He is learning fast hopefully he saves a few this round. And next round I'm more prepared

Since you're breeding bristlenose, I was wondering if you might sell me a male, so I can get some females from my lfs and avoid inbreeding?

That sounds about right, I'm planning on buying a 40g around then, and I need the 40g first! So no worries on time ^^

He's very cute, if you're selling me one of those, I might just explode, because that's a really pretty gene pool! ^^
