    Hello!
     
    this is my first post on fish forums, very exciting!
     
    i have 2 red ob zebra's in my 20 gallon tank (along with some other friends) and every now and then the female gets a whole bunch of eggs in her mouth but only ever holds on to them for a few days and then next time i see her they're gone. this has happened at least 7 or 8 times. what could be causing her to spit them out every time?
     
    i've heard of cichilds needing a few trial runs but this is every time. also i feel like it's less likely she'll ever hold again since she's the dominant one between her and the male, she's always chasing him around the tank and he'll spend most of his time hiding in the corner behind a rock just to get away from her
     
    can anyone help me out with whats happening?
