They have been many batches already but they hatch in like 9 days 30 mins to an hour after lights out; believe it or not they know when its lights out!

Then we are supposed to shine a torch the direction of the rock and the babies will swim towards it then you suck them out with a hose....sounds easy? I havent succeeded once yet every nite I see nothing happens then next day all eggs and babies gone... yep

Trying at the moment to get them to lay the eggs on a smaller rock/piece of tile...so I can remove whole tile; again easy sounding doh

They hatch every 9 days but I suppose when I have another spare tank to keep them; at the moment too busy with getting the water paras good again and also the frontosa fries.

So at the moment the fishes having delicious and expensive snacks!
