Sorry I didn't get back to you sooner. I have not been a very active member lately. I would guess that it was the first time that female was berried correct? If that is the case, I would not worry. It happens a lot when it is their first time being berried.
I see you have answered a lot of questions on RCS. I have one for you. I have a sponge filter and they like to eat off of it..well I saw a female that was carrying eggs had dropped the on one side of the filter..i dont know if they got sucked out of her care or what. My question is will they still hatched if they are not held by the mother?
