The eggs finally hatched on Monday, I was at work and missed the whole thing. I’m not exactly sure where she keeps her nest, Bo said that he saw something moving underneath the black grill. I think my eyesight is getting worse because I couldn’t see anything.

This image was prior to the hatching, she was picking out the bad eggs.

This was taken today and she looks exhausted. Bo moved the male to a 55 gallon tank in the garage since she was being real mean to him.  He plans to move the mother out after 3-4 weeks and will try to breed them again soon, hopefully the water-condition will be better than this tank.

Bo thought she was carrying her Fry in her mouth, but I didn’t see any coming out in this shot.  She does this very often.
