Re: snacking viejetas

[Mike Wise]
If your viejita eggs disappear after 1 day, I think they are not fertile for
some reason. The female will know this after a day & eat them. Either your
is "shooting blanks" or something about your water conditions are wrong. It
takes more than soft, acidic, water. It also needs low concentrations of
organics & possibly certain metals. Zinc in low concentrations, for example,
known to prevent egg fertilization by milt in trout. If you are not doing
now, try larger & more frequent water changes & see if this helps. Good

Water is RO and other apisto species have hatched in it with no problem.

The pair have just spawned this evening and male looks well behaved -
cruising around at a distance. So I'll leave him in and see what gives in
the morning.
