Silvertip Tetras spawnig but no fry?

Recommended Posts

Help! I watched the eggs scatter, watched them in the Java moss. I didn't see them eating many and I separated that night. I covered the tank and switched the filter off.

Don't understand?

Any ideas??

I was pretty hopeful I might of cracked it already. The fish definitely worked hard!

Love some feed back.

Hope everyone is staying safe and doing their bit. Good time to watch some fish.

Thank you, will put a mask on an get some distilled water. A scatter yesterday but could do nothing but watch them all get eaten. Have a solo pair in today. Less mouths more eggs? 

Loving the action, something so cool about watching eggs rain down. almost sounds a little weird. Guess fish people would understand. Have a friend who bought some Cichlids. He has lost two fish. Are they a little more advanced? Will let you know when I get some fry.

The best way to breed fish that are egg scatterers is to make a tray with fine netting on the bottom and short legs so there is room for the eggs to fall out the bottom. You can then spawn a group and save the eggs.
