    Ha Siobhan it all happened on sunday! Put it down to the thunder storm calming the male and letting my female have her wicked way with him...so far so good im hoping they'll be horizontally swimming tomorrow so i can take the male out...i hope he doesnt miss them as he's not looking one bit tired!

    Even though dad did an excellent job im afraid the babies didnt survive after dad was taken out but these fry seemed to be extremely small compared to what the fry usually look like in size when they first hatched...very weak.

    But im putting it down to the female being young still, im hoping to breed the same couple in a few months when she's at least 7 months old.

    I'm probably just worrying too much, but the fry are becoming increasingly difficult to spot in the tank.

    So sorry to hear this Nat. I didn't know you had this spawn. Will keep fingers crossed for next attempt. I'd love to have some marble females in my tank! Very Happy
