hes in a a piece of drift wood thats had a hole drilled into it bout 13ish cm deep. its the only cave he likes. he did the same thing as last time, after bout 4 or 5 days he boots em. maybe some of the eggs arent getting fertilized or somethin so he boots em all. thinkin i should get another female so he can get more practice.

Good luck with this one Karl. My boys have stopped kicking eggs out now and have raised some good sized batches now - hopefully yours has learned too

eggs booted again. well a big clutch of em that is. theres still about 10 still stuck to the roof of his cave. could this be the reason they end up booted coz they arent properly stuck to the cave by the female?

Geez Karl you cant take a trick Sad
The eggs themselves are sticky so they dont need to be physically "stuck". The last lot of LF eggs my guy booted actually stuck to the glass after they left the cave. I dont know why he would continually kick them out unless they arent being fertilised properly.
If I was you I would invest in a good egg tumbler and hope he gets his sh$t together next time. On the brighter side, at least they are spawning regularly Very Happy

Damn man, that sucks! wonder what goes through his head?

I would get a tumbler asap as they are good for hatching the eggs. There was a guy down south who used to make them, he was onplecofanatcis but i can remember his name. Or if you are taking the adults out just add in a few airstones to really move the water around.

I'll cross my fingers for ya Smile

Have you got an egg-tumbler yet? the guy who used to sell the tumblers is Fishyone. He is on plecomadness i think. I believe he has an online store now but i cant remember the name of it.

hopefully you wont need it tho

even if he does boot the wrigglers they should be fine. Its only really when they are eggs that he needs to be really on top of it. I often get one or two wrigglers hanging onto the side of the tank well before they are meant to be out, and they seem to do fine Smile

X2 Cool

In fact I once went to change a log without checking it it and about 15 early-stage wrigglers popped out.. Left them and they all survived. So long as ammonia is kept under control they will do just fine Smile
