BKK gave birth and NO babies anywhere.

OK I put my BKK in the breeders box and a couple of days ago she was hugely berried, then yesterday I noticed she wasn't anymore, so thought OK start looking for baby BKKs...I figured they were going to be mostly black as all the eggs were black.

I searched that breeders box back to front and top to bottom with light and magnifier, and NO babies anywhere. They could not escape thru the grate as I have filter foam behind the grate and they would not get thru that too small holes.

So I am led to believe she may have had them during the night and made a snack of them, or they just didn't survive and she and the snail ate them up.

I have her back in the main tank now so hopefully she will get berried again soon. Still have the CWB and BB and Snow white to go yet, but I was sooooo looking forward to baby BKKs.
