In my opinion, these fish will probably lay eggs until they die. However, in
view of my recent similar experience with australe, I suggest that worms or
mites in the tank may be eating the eggs. Try collecting the eggs twice a day --
morning and evening. Then put the eggs in clean chlorinated tap water,
assuming you find some eggs. These little critters will devour the eggs in the tank
and also when you collect them. Change out the chlorinated water for
dechlorinated water after a few days to avoid killing the newly hatched fry.
