    Storm's First Spawn

    Post by Storm on Wed Apr 07, 2010 2:23 am

    Well after a stressful few days, the 2 of them got it on this afternoon. Spawning started at 11.45 and stopped around 13.45. During that 2 hours is was amazing, at first i thought oh no its going to be a failed spawn as none of the parents seem to know what to do. However after a few wraps mum came to the rescue and started collecting the eggs and spitting them in the nest Smile.

    Then after half an hour both parents were working as a team, and it made me so happy. Although as dad got the hang of it she let him get on with it.

    So now its the waiting game, and hopefully there will be some wrigglers soon.

    As for pictures i aint got a camera sorted, so i will slowly start sending them to kel of Liam.

    Cheers

    You can relax now but expect chaos once they are wrigglers and good luck with water changes! lol
