I find this quite common, in fact my Bristlenose always seem to have the first batch and then the secnd usually comes along about 14-20 days later
all the time, usually the first batch is a small one and the second batch of eggs is often in the 60 - 70's.

Raise your glasses and hands.....

Mark it on the calendar and see how often it happens Smile

Congratulations...

I agree. It seems once they start they don't stop. I have just sold my first lot of babies and I counted them out as I sold them. There were 94! I've had them in a 2' tank since they hatched in October and they were about 1.5 " when I sold them. I couldn't keep up with filtering and water changes any more so was glad they have gone but I accidentally left two in the tank.
Good luck with yours.

ahhh, but you see, there is the trick..get more tanks, have more fry, sell more fry, pay for the power bill and buy the missus something shiny to keep her happy about the fishtanks.

WIN-WIN cheers
