Re: Where's my eggs!!!
You might try to perk them up with some live food if you haven't
already been using some. I have experimented recently and found that if I
check my mops daily I get 5 to 10 times more eggs than if I check weekly! I
also get larger numbers of fungused eggs. I think this is caused by light
exposure. There is definitely a tendency among most fish species to eat
their eggs. In fact, given your concern, I would probably check twice daily
for a while. You also haven't made any mention of age or size. Some A.
australe strains are well known to be slow developers compared to other
Aphyosemions, and even other australe strains. On a happy note, the slow
developers also tend to have great longevity compared to the fast-growing
fish. Perhaps you only need to be patient for a while. Some of the experts
around here can help with water chemistry issues, etc. I am only a
journeyman breeder myself. I hope this helps. Welcome to the killie hobby!
