my albinos may have finally bred. can't tell because the male is hiding in a piece of pvc and there is a rock inside to hold it down, and he hides under the rock. do males come out of the breeding cave when there are eggs in it or do they always stay in it?

a good male will stay with the eggs/fry until they are ready to leave the cave. not even coming out to eat

Yea like doug said if he's a good dad he won't come out. Found out my albino longfin male isn't a good dad. Day after they had spawned he was in and out the cave to munch on algae wafers :|

Well if they havnt spawned yet they will. Funny thing bout bn if you put a male n female together, add a cave, keep water conditions livable for the fish and have plenty of food for them. Then well little bn fry are inevitable lol. Good luck with the breeding tho Very Happy
