What are the various reasons why a female might drop her clutch? I'm sure there are general things like poor water quality, but are there any specific reasons, like lack of X or Y in the diet, or presence of Q or X chemical in the water?
if its a first time berry she's gonna drop eggs because the female is new to this. It's like rollerblading or snowboarding for the first time you're gonna fall.
drops can occur via stress, poor water quality an llet's hope this doesn't happen... molting
from my experience, my female blue velvet died because she was berried and molted so then the molt got stuck to her. *The berries are stuck to the female's shell with this adhesive the female produces to keep the eggs on. *
Ya I would be beyond happy if half survived. Seeming like my oebt's are holding their eggs better and kind of higher up than my supreme reds. I noticed a couple eggs kinda hanging out of one of my supremes.
i do have a kit. are you curious of how bad my water conditions are atm LOL
all i know is that the tank was negletcted for months. now that i am finally home, i can actually do water changes. not doing major water changes because i dont wan't to drastically change the water parameters. did a water change maybe 2-3 weeks ago and already have a spawn of 10 + babies.
i need to do another water change again but i already have a brand new home that been cycling for a month or so that i want to drop them in there.
problem is im afraid the drastic water change will stress them too much from poor condition to great condition.
