Thanks for the info! I'm glad I hadn't tipped the cave up to look yet. It's been about 2 days she's been camping out in there. I gave her some sinking food that fell a couple inches from the fave and she came out for a small bite but acted to torn to eat or go back to the cave! Lol. My male ended up dying.
sad day. He was so pretty.
Now my concern is that she may have laid eggs but the cave is kind of small...don't know if the two fit in there at the same time to get the eggs fertilized! I guess I will just patiently wait a few more days. She's so swollen up though...should she "deflate" after laying eggs. She seems to be a pretty mature female though, maybe 3 1/2 inches even.
Will I be able to see the fry right away once free swimming? I've read baby brine shrimp is good to feed them to start out. But I would need to grow them, should I wait until I see free swimmers?
