Just remember to keep the lights dimmed on the eggs. I don;t know that they are photosensitive as with Tetras but the fish likes cover so it's probably a safe bet. It can't hurt the eggs being too dim. You'll want to increase it slightly once the eggs hatch.

Good luck and keep us posted

They have all hatched and are now swimming around the tank. They almost look like tiny little tadpoles. Lol. Ive counted around 70. Who knows how many are actually in there.

Well, I decided to do a count again today and it looks that right around 100 - 110 have survived so far. Just leaves me wondering how many will actually make it to adulthood... only the 5 I have now survived from my cousins batch of 65 juvies.

I did another count yesterday. Either they are hiding very well, or there is something happening to them. I cant seem to find more than 15.

What are you feeding them and how often?
