I should point out that they have not yet spawned, but the lady gudgeon looks gravid, and the male is interested.

Terrible video, but you can see how tight of a squeeze that cave is.

Two days later I have eggs!

They're really hard to see, he's got himself pretty deep under the rock but if I shine the light in at the right angle I can catch them. I can't easily photograph them.. But I'll try.

I might try spot feeding worms to him under the rock, though maybe not right away. I figure I'll pull the whole rock on Thursday rather than letting them hatch in the community tank.

Oh and lady gudgeon isn't as skinny as I expected her to be after laying eggs.. My guess is that she's still got eggs since from what I've read they will spawn once these fry hatch out.

I finally managed to get a shot of the male in his cave. It's not great, but you can see that he's upside down and in the second image you can see the eggs attached to the rock against the white/yellow of his belly.

Not sure. They might have to go in the 10 for now. I'm just not sure if I should keep them on the rock, or try to scrape them off.

Keep the rock so they don't get damaged but maybe place them with shrimp so the shrimp can tend the eggs until they hatch

What about a separate tank minus snails with a group of cherries? I read some where about how the shrimp will roll and clean and keep the eggs fungus free
