    Default Breeding attempts failed

    Hi I have a breeding pair that has spawn eggs 4 times without success. First attempt I did nothing the next day became mostly with fungus and later the female ate them. Second, I turned of filter, add few drops of methylene blue and mesh net , 5 days later some had fungus and other amber but nothing. Third, blue methylene turned off filter and nothing. My water parameters 47 tds and 30 c. Need help.

    Your tank is also a bit hot. Ease the temp to 28c.

    I do not use r/o. My tap water is 20-27 TDs. Should I? My w/c is 2 to times by week. 50 and 25%. They usually spawn after w/c. Every 8-10 days spawn.

    They should hatch after 3 days at most. At 30C even earlier. Maybe it is to hot. And what happened with those amber eggs after 5 days on a second attempt?
