Well looks like the rams have abandoned the eggs to the corys. I have a 29 gallon tank I am currently setting up to house just the rams and some dithers. Havent seen any fry with the dicrossus yet. :)

Yes hopefully they will spawn again. This time I had just added the male, left the lights off for 2 days while I was out of town, came back and turned them on and they started spawing immediately.

the rams have bred again. I am finally getting around to setting up my 29 for them today. I was thinking of using sand substrate this time, and maybe moving my rummynose into the tank with them. I still havent been able to spot any dicrossus eggs. I think I have too many males in there. I wonder if a few male dicrossus would be okay with my rams in the 29. Any comments or suggestions??

Wow thanks for the tips! I do have some purple neon tetras and a dwarf cory in there with them. I try not to bother the tank but I have been getting real close looking for eggs so maybe thats the problem. I noticed my rams have spawned again. Hopefully this time some will get a chance to hatch!

they are free swimming now. There must be 200 of them! I have been trying to feed them bbs, first bites, and crushed flake food, but they are so small i cant tell if they are eating or not.
