PostSubject: Moving Eggs   Fri Mar 05, 2010 10:30 pm

Hi guys, I'm new here - also new to Bristlenose breeding.

I purchased 2 large females last weekend, to go with the 2 males that I've had for over a month. I looked in the tank this morning, and already I've got a large pile of eggs in the tank.

I've seen a lot of people talk about moving the eggs into a Fry Saver or another tank. I am looking for advice as to how to move the eggs and also, if I do move the eggs into a Fry Saver or another tank, do I need to move the father as well?

Finally, I would like some opinions as to whether the mother and father should be separated into different tanks for a while once the babies are born.

Looking forward to any help that can be offered.

Thanks in advance.

Firstly hello and welcome

I only move my eggs to a fry saver if the males kicks them out, otherwise they get eating
I also leave the male and female in the same tank no need to seperate them

this is my fry saver

but other use different methods

to move them I use a baster to suck up the eggs them put them in the fry saver, or you could just picked up the cave and empty it out, but I do not see a need for this unless the male abandones the eggs

i dont no if reading this wrong have you found the eggs laying around in the tank or are they with the male or as the male kicked them from his cave????
as for the parents theirs no need to move them or the fry if you dont want to they will all be ok together. although too males in the same tank can cause problems when breeding.
as for hatching your eggs just put them in a fry saver i use the ones for guppies and just put a air stone in or if your running a sponge fillter put the fry saver near that.
if you can see the eggs moving a bit then that will be ok but you dont want them moveing around in their and if their fertile they should hatch off ok
good luck
