German Rams with potential babies

Postby Apistogramma » Fri Jun 29, 2007 4:31 pm

Hi all!!

My German Rams have just produced their first clutch of eggs!! They arrived on June 15th so they've been in two weeks EXACTLY! I'm so impressed! They've got the right idea - guarding them from everything that moves! Can't get any pics, they're in the wrong place!!

Thanks everybody! I'm on a high... :D

*Comes back down to earth* I've heard that Blue Rams are notorious egg eaters. While my pair don't seem to think they're for eating (yet) I'm slightly torn between leaving the eggs with them to see if they turn out to be model parents or taking them out. If I do need to remove them...what do I need to be aware of when taking care of the eggs?

I think I'll probably leave this clutch with them and see what happens, if they're going to be good parents themselves I'd rather let nature dictate which eggs and fry survive. However if I notice any nibbling I'll try to rescue whatever's left!
