So my breeding pair of oscars spawned on May 10th, the batch of eggs which appeared to evenly fertilized but alas got fungus almost right away, ended up with about 15 fry, so my pair decided to promptly spawn again on May 22, so I pulled the 15 or so fry out of the tank and put them in another tank, mom and dad kept putting the live swimmers back in the nest and they were slowly munching on the eggs, to avoid losing this batch to fungus, I put 10ml of pimafix in there two days in a row and it seemed to work pretty well considering it's a 125g tank we had hardly any fungus, which didn't appear till the night of the second day. so now we have large batch of swimmers that took off today from their little sand bowl. Looks to be a hundred or so, only time will tell lol. Mom has a serious case of "get away from my tank syndrome" dad is more "take that cleaning tool out of here now" and doesn't really care if you're outside the tank (note doing water changes and posting to the forums at the same time can lead to pissed off fish, Uno doesn't like laying on his side) That is the status of breeding in my fishy world :D Anyway, last month of school is crazy around here also youth groups getting ready for their end of year stuff also. Busy busy busy :D thinking of you guys. *wave*
