    Just been back out to check what is going on.. I have spotted maybe 10 or so round things eggs? that seem to be just floating around in a big air pocket under the bubble wrap.. I cant work out if they are just air bubbles or not..

    Does anyone have a very clear picture of some eggs in a nest that they could please post up to show us newbies what we are supposed to be seeing?


    Editing this as what I should have said was.. I cant work out if they are bubbles or eggs as they arent in a cluster so unable to see if they are opaque or not.. If that makes sense now lol

    best I can find where it doesn't just look like a mass of bubbles.

    atleast you can see the colour difference

    Well this is turning out to be a real roller coaster ride with my diary... After checking again and still convinced that was no eggs, I decided to clean the floor of his tank a little bit, it was disgusting.
    So there was my busy with my syphon tube and looks over and he is going ballistic under the nest. I get the mag glass out and have another look to see what he is doing and guesss what??

    I have eggs!!!! He was busy putting them back up into the nest. I still can not see them for looking, but I know there are there Smile

    I would just like to say a big thankyou to Kel, who has had to put up with me on the phone for ages going through everything over and over again.. Thanks hunnie x

    That's it! I'm taking the bums, the no good lay abouts; the no bubble blowing losers and the feet (or fin) dragging lolligaggers and put them back in jars and start with some fresh meat. I'm glad you have eggs. I get tickled every time I read about a new spawn. I guess I'll have to get out the whip on mine.
