    congratulations! But how are you going to remove the female later without damaging the bubble nest?

    he's definately a winning nest builder! cheers

    btw.. is that a filter in the background?
    If it is then you'll probably need to remove it for the fry.

    I could not believe my eyes Kel:-)the nest more or less covered all the tank in just one night.

    As for the filter.yes it is a filter.this spawn was not planned fo this pair,I was aborting a spawn with the female and another HM male,as all he wanted to do was eat her.eggs were falling from her while she was trying to avaide the male,so I removed her in a jar and placed her in another males tank.dropped the water level,internal filter off,light on all night.woke up to a MASSIVE nest :-)
    just did no want to mess around yesterday so not to disturb them or the nest.I think I may be able to slide it up with the suckers without disturbing the nest.the eggs are only 12hrs old ish so I have time to do it laters :-)

    the fry and the male are well.the male has done a tireless job,and he still looks in great shape.when they first hatched he was none stop for 24hrs,slowed down alot now as the fry are able to stay near the nest,not free swimming just yet.

    thanks.the pics were before the spawn.the male is still really quiet low,just cant seem to snap him out of it.ive tried a pinch of salt,daily water changes about 30%,various foods live frozen,put other males near his tank to flare at.

    but he is still really slow and just stares at the top of his tank of some time??

    The fry are looking good Smile Just to compare notes, what are you feeding them at the moment? I have a spawn on the same day as yours and they are on BBS and microworms now. Mainly microworms. I'm still having die offs at about 5 a day.
