Urgent help please - Bristlenose eggs
Posted 16 December 2009 - 10:23 AM
I just pulled out my TUFA rock disdlay to enable a good vacuuming session but my MALE bristlenose was reluctant to let go of his piece of rock he and his wife usually just drop out back into the water quite happily . I then noticed about 10 or 15 egg like things but they seemed to be covered in a white mucus or something. Have they spawned and the eggs just rotted or is the white layer a protective cover ?
I put the rock back and added the other pieces and the male bristlenose was back in place on the same bit of rock . Could he be holding some HEALTHY eggs or even young babies ??
So confused I hope I havenít ruined things for the happy couple

The other way is to put them in a species only tank and set them up with pipes and flowerpots. We have an article on this very subject here http://www.scotcat.c...s/article5.html
