You are right and its proved right.
This 6.5 inch female which spawned for the first time in my tank swallowed all the eggs by morning.

It surprises me to see the females choosing the rock area, though my Alpha is not a shy guy hiding in his cave, but is always out in the open displaying himself. I rather have a female in the group hiding all the time except feeding time. How will the females know that the rock area is the area which the alpha can protect their courtship/eggs?

P.S.
Very nice to see another female in the group very curious to know what is happening behind the rock. She gets chased everytime. Hahahaha. I know this might be too basics for many experts out here. I am just sharing my joy with you guys.

Let me wait till day 7 this time.

Thanks

History repeats itself.

Hello Folks

The 13 fries were all sold.

Now I have a repeat issue like last time.
The Alpha female (smallest of the group though) that bred successfully this time, doesn't let the other female that has her tube down to breed with the Alpha male. She intervenes too much into the spawning area and the Alpha male gets fed up and shows aggression on the tube down female. This is happening for the 2nd time for this female. She looks to be very shy female. She begins by getting into the Alpha males den for spawning but eventually doesn't go long enough to spawn....either gets distracted by the Alpha female or gets beaten by the Alpha male himself.

Any advises?
