So far so good, the eggs are in a hob breeding box. There's some white eggs in there but I've seen white eggs every time they lay eggs. I'm hoping i get some fry this time

I believe they are wigglers at this point! They literally look like eggs with tails. I'm super excited and I hope I'm doing this right and they live!

Glad to hear you're having luck again! I haven't been on much lately. Mine haven't laid eggs since November 20th. They were laying every 4-8 days and then just stopped suddenly after like 4 batches. =( but I hope you have better luck this time!!

Hadn't been on in awhile and was just reading through past posts. It is unfortunate that you lost some rams, it always sucks to lose a fish. I can almost guarantee it was not from planaria as I currently have hydra/planaria in one of my tanks for 6 months now with no ill effects. Those particular GBR's have even bred multiple times since then so I'd look elsewhere for the cause. As for the eggs/wigglers, it is best to either remove the eggs or the parents as more often than not they will get eaten. Those little plastic critter containers work well for the eggs/wigglers with a heater and air flow like was mentioned to help prevent fungus but I still avoid malachite green or methylene blue in favor of hydrogen peroxide as it's less chemicals going in the tank.

There's some ways of telling, but it's hard, I've looked it up before but I'm not 100 percent sure of which ones are males or females
