woke up this morning to found some breakfast ready for me .......................... eggs.............................. from my GBR.................



they are such bad parents ~ it's in a planted community tank and they would both leave the eggs....... :(
hopefully i can get some wigglers and put them in a grow out tank.....

Nice! I have a pair of GBR's that I am half expecting to do this, but are also in a community tank. Are they really that bad of parents? They certainly aren't that aggressive towards other fish so far as I can tell.

from what i read online and other forums - most of the wigglers will be eaten by the parents if not taken out. hopefully i get some free swimming. if it goes pass 3 days ~ and there's still fries in the tank...take them out.

Are the eggs white or a tan color? White = no good, tan = fertilized.

THOSE WHO REFUSE KNOWLEDGE ARE DOOMED TO FAIL.

WATER CHANGES ARE THE LIFEBLOOD OF THIS HOBBY. IF YOU DON'T BELIEVE SO OR SIMPLY DON'T FEEL LIKE DOING THEM, RE-HOME YOUR FISH, SELL YOUR AQUARIUM & FIND ANOTHER HOBBY, AS YOU WILL FAIL UTTERLY, COMPLETELY, & MISERABLY.

Part 2 - they just laid eggs again.

@bigken- should I remove the eggs or see if they are good parents once again?

Forgot to add. The eggs are brownish color. So in hoping I'll have wigglers in a day or two.
