Electric Blue Rams

I have eggs! I bought these fish a month ago and had a siamensis in the tank. Now 3 days after I took the siamensis in to the LFS for store credit because he was being aggressive during feeding times, I have eggs. I have 4 electric blue rams, 6 red cherry shrimp, 2 amano shrimp. Hopefully they make it and continue to grow. I have no experience with EBR eggs or breeding them, so I guess we'll see.

I read this in a article some where it sounds like good advice.

Add a prefiltler and if possible remove the other fish or segregate the breeding pair and eggs from the others. keep the pair well fed and stress free. When they hatch try to remove the fry from the tank till they are of good size to not be a snack.

I don't know where I'm going but I'm on my way.

The shrimp will go after the eggs too, FYI. The rams will go after the cherries but the amano shrimp on the other hand......
