If they are a new pair and your willing to be patient let them keep them, they will most likely eat these too but if they are going to parent raise it will take them 4 or 5 tries but each time they should get a little further along

My pair would parent raise but it went like this:

1st time ate the eggs after a day

2nd time took them to wiggler then ate

3rd time just started to free swim then freaked out and ate

4th time raised half the spawn out

5th raised a full spawn


If you remove the eggs they get squirrelly and will eat eggs everytime to protect them from you so once you start pulling eggs you will always have too

Are they in a community tank? Currently mines are. Should I put a divider to separate the corys?

Mine were in a tank with 2 other rams, a divider would be ok as long as the rams can see through it im of the opinion that rams are bad parents because people put them in pair only tanks and they lose interest but with other fish in the tank they are on constant guard

That's good progress, it doesn't make sense to us but new fish parents when they think there eggs are in danger will eat them to save them from the other fish :S as long as they continue to raise them longer each time I would just let them keep them, trust me it's a whole lot easier to teach them to parent raise then to pull the eggs and do it yourself

i think the females ready again ... bellies big ...tubes almost down ~ i'm thinking of removing the cory's and see if that'll make a difference. but after reading some forums - they prefer to have other fish in the tank? not sure why such behavior ...but give it a try.
