    I know there is an appropriate r. duospilus thread but I couldn’t find it. My matriarch has laid eggs on the front glass. Is this unusual Jutta?

    The eggs which are stored in this way are mostly not fertilized, Jim. This becomes probably rather nothing.

    Thanks Rudi. A bit too much light and the glass is dirty.

    Thanks Jutta, that’s what I figured. She’s done it correctly before so I don’t know what’s going on? Maybe the male(her young son) is not cooperating?

    Good to know you’ve been raising fry Jim! Are Rhinogobius females known to simply expel eggs sometimes, e.g., in the absence of a receptive male?

    Jim, it may be that the male has no desire either because it is too young … or (and I do not want to hope for you) he is the wrong species …..
    Do you have a significant temperature drop at night in the tank? If not, you should try it once.

    Matt, older, more experienced females lay their eggs in listless males indeed on somewhere. Younger females die unfortunately sometimes on spawning hardening, because they has not mastered this.

    At the moment I only have one mature female and two of her offspring, one male one female. The mature male, and father of the offspring, died a while back. The young male looks mature and is pretty well colored up. I’m not in a position right now to raise a bunch of fry and not “trying” to breed them. Thanks for the tips though:wink:
