Need some advice

Recommended Posts

Hey all. I have a pair of Turq's & the female lays every 2 - 3 days. They have let the first lot hatch, but over a week & a half they picked of all the fry during laying so frequently.

Any suggestion would be gratefully appreciated. I have tried covering the cone with gutter guard & leaving the cleaning maintenance for a day or two see if that helped.

Cheers,

Troy

I was asking [MENTION=12589]Bear[/MENTION].

You can over feed the adults (female mainly) while they have eggs or wigglers, and the female will produce more eggs and want to lay again.

Another reason may be the pair feel that the spawn is too small and not worth the energy to raise a small spawn, and would prefer to try again. I had a pair lay eggs, but only 20 odd wigglers made it to free swimming and began feeding off the parents. So they spawned again, and laid a huge batch of eggs.
