    Mamma continues to lay eggs. Papa following around like a lost puppy. ;o)

    Latest count is up to (50). Literally laying them anywhere and everywhere. Going through some pics now to see what may have turned out.

    08/18: To the best that I can tell....mama laid 52 eggs total this go around. Unfortunatly, papa missed two and thus not viable (turned white). So the count stays at 50.

    Did a 10% wc ahead of expected hatching to begin sometime tomorrow. Went ahead and dropped in additional food as well and added zucchini nummy nums.

    08/19: Let the hatching begin! The invasion of the wiggle waggles.

    As anticipated, the new babies started hatching. I came and to best I can count, I found (18) fry. Unfortunately (for me that is), most of them are in the plants so no way I can get an accurate count. Which is ok with me. Focus now is on rearing which is of course the difficult part.

    Few eggs remain and some are hatchings in progress. Those ones I did not count.

    Going through the first batch of pics now. We'll see if any turn out.

    Picture from 081909

    Final check for today, I found (25) new babies. Fifty million pictures and only a few turn out. Definately have to work on the photo abilities.

    One final parting shot for the day:

    Not sure if I missed this, but how many adult oto's did you start out with, before they started to breed? Did you do anything other than feedings/water changes? Thanks.

    Started out with (2). Nothing special with the tank other than daily fert dosing, feeding regiment and wc's.
