 Hi  friends,
 
 After  3  unsuccessful  attempts  by  recently  formed  Marlboro  pair,  they  have  managed  to  get  90+  wrigglers  today.  The  parents  are  looking  extremely  dedicated  and  taking  good  care  of  fry.  
 
 Here  is  the  series  of  actions
 3-Jul  Sat  -  7.00  PM  :  Spotted  them  laying  eggs,  I  had  to  move  out  and  was  in  hurry  so  I  was  not  able  to  see  if  male  is  doing  his  job.
 3-Jul  Sat  -  8.30  PM  :  Pair  was  fanning  the  eggs.  I  put  MB  (Rid-All  blue)  6-8  drops  in  my  18x20x24  tank.  Immediately  I  put  egg  guard  as  well.  Put  on  the  heater  as  temperature  drops  down  to  20C  at  nights.
 4-Jul  Sun  -  9.00  AM  :  Pair  was  still  fanning  the  eggs  and  most  of  the  eggs  were  brown  in  color.  I  did  20-25%  WC  and  put  off  the  heater.
 4-Jul  Sun  -  4.00  PM  :  4-5  eggs  turned  white  but  most  of  them  were  dark  brown  in  color.
 4-Jul  Sun  -  8.30  PM  :  Few  more  eggs  turned  white  rest  were  almost  black  in  color.  The  pair  was  looking  so  determined,  I  decided  to  remove  egg  guard  -  This  was  the  risk  which  I  took.  I  put  heater  ON  again.
 5-Jul  Mon  -  7.00  AM  :  The  pair  was  fighting  (usual  domestic  violence  nothing  serious  Mad)  for  getting  hold  of  breeding  pipe  to  fan  the  eggs.  I  did  25%  WC  and  went  for  office.  Even  tough  there  was  "BHARAT  BANDH"  my  office  did  not  have  day-off   I  hate  my  office  Thumb Down
 5-Jul  Mon  -  2.00  PM  :  Left  office  as  there  was  not  much  work  for  me  to  do,  of  course  my  manager  allow  me  to  leave  with  the  promise  that  I  will  stay  connected  from  home  Wink  -  I  pray  that  all  of  us  should  get  such  managers  Thumbs Up  .  The  pair  was  fanning  the  eggs  and  I  was  able  to  see  some  eggs  filling  with  prominent  black  color.
 5-Jul  Mon  -  8.30  PM  :  Male  started  cleaning  bottom  of  the  tank,  female  was  still  fanning  the  eggs.
 6-Jul  Tue  -  7.30  AM  :  Saw  90+  wrigglers  and  pair  was  spotting  the  falling  fries  and  was  trying  to  put  them  back  on  pipe.  I  removed  sponge  filter  and  put  air  stone,  also  reduce  water  level  by  15%.
 BTW,  I  had  put  LED  lights  all  the  time  over  the  tank.
 
 Now,  I'm  keeping  my  fingers  crossed.  I  will  be  checking  the  progress  of  fry  by  calling  my  wife  (she  is  expert  in  siphoning  the  tank  only)  every  now  and  then.
 
 Special  thanks  to  Kiran's  thread  about  spawning  and  Shiva.  I  did  not  bother  to  disturb  the  pair  too  much  and  hence  did  not  click  the  snaps.  I  will  post  few  snaps  once  the  fry  is  attached  to  parents  (hopefully  today?).  Below  is  the  picture  of  female.  I  don't  have  snap  of  male.
 
 Female  -  3  months  old  snap
 
 
 [EDIT]  -  Did  not  want  to  start  a  new  thread  for  melons  pair,  so  just  continuing  the  old  thread.
 
 Regards,
 Adesh
