Alright, the female ate the first batch, I was a bit disappointed, but now the second batch is doing much better, they are about 3 days old. They are still developing. I'm pretty excited :)

3 days old

Is that tank for both of them + fry? Is it large enough?

I'm no Apisto expert, but I think it's neat you get to watch them mate!
It's a 10g tank. Good enough for breeding. Got some wood and leafs in there as you can see, so they feel more comfortable, it also brings down the pH. I will leave the fry in there for a month or so, then move them to their separate tank.

It's awesome to watch them do everything, nature is amazing :)

do you have wigglers? they wont move eggs. if they feel stressed fish will eat eggs and lay in a different spot next time they spawn. they will move fry though. best thing you can do is just check on them once or twice a day so they young dont get eaten
