    Hi there, I’m relatively new to the fish keeping world and I’m on my 3rd lot of BN eggs. But daddio keeps kicking a clump of eggs out of his log... they are bright orange so I assume they are full of babies, how can I safely hatch them ? It seems that he doesn’t want to hatch the eggs from the biggest female

    I have never hatched Bn eggs but I gently gather my goldie eggs and place them in a bare bottom nursery tank. It needs to be filtered. They should hatch on their own then. Only fill it about 4” with dechlorinated water. Not sure what to feed pleco fry. I feed my Goldie fry Hikari First Bites or New Life Spectrum Grow. Others?
