So, I brought in the minnows yesterday from the pond into a nice little 14gal long tank, as I noticed no fry in the pond after numerous observed spawns.
It took em all of 20 minutes to start doing the hanky panky in the tank, but then a few minutes later they all come and eat the eggs, I have seen this a few times now since they have been in the tank.
Is this normal behaviour for them?
Is there anything i can do to get them not to eat the eggs, (i just stuffed them full of bloodworms a while ago, they are only interested in digestion atm. So the eggs are getting a rest...
P.S. those are quite large eggs for such small fish.
