Default Alpha has Poor sight. Willl he produce babies?

He is as normal as any other moba in my group but his eye sight is a little weird . Whenever he is picking some food that is either floating or sinking , he will have tough time spot it when he gets close to it. He can spot it when he is far but as he approaches it he will hit it on his head or hit it above where it actually is or on either side. If he is lucky and other fishes doesn't pick it up before be struggles to pick it up, be gets it.

How does this capacity affect his role as a father?

Maybe he is far-sighted meaning he cant see things clearly that's close to him.

Not all that much, unless there are also some other abnormalities. It's not like he's the one that needs to spot and pick up the eggs, he just needs to be in the ballpark when they're doing the mating dance. Otherwise, like most males, breeding success will depend on various factors, including interest, temperament, potency, etc.

Oh ok.
But my females are not dropping tube completely. The male seems interested but he has not chosen any spot for breeding. He keeps flaring and bending towards the females he approaches very gently but with the mask becoming distinct. The Females have now settled down and less flaring at each other however certain dominant females chases away other females now and then. With good line of sight being cut by tall flower pots the aggressive 2nd male has reduced chasing but is still active.
There is one female who is dropping her tubes very little like I have put in the forum named "slight tube drop" and today even a little more than that. But I have eXperienced in my previous colony where the females used to not take more than couple of days to completely drop tubes.
Am I doing anything wrong?
