    The wrigglers should be free swimmers soon however, I hold little hope for attachment because they are in a community tank with a black background, black sponge filter and some manzanita. I imagine most if not all will get eaten (I think about 1/2 of the wrigglers already have) before they find their parents.
    However, I bought a new tank (like I have the room for it -hahaha) so I will set that up this weekend and they can try again in that if needed.

    Well as expected, when I woke up this morning, almost all of the wrigglers were gone. I watched a few swim around and then get eaten by my apistos. I am sure they were very happy with this great meal. Later I went back to look and there were 4 left but they looked too weak to even become free swimmers so, they will probably be lunch for someone soon.
    At least I have a tank and a cone from Barb that I can set up for the confirmed pair. Will work on that today.
    They were good parents too. Such a shame but, that is what happens in a community tank when discus spawn.

    That's what happens in breeding tanks too sometimes, you've just been blessed enough not to experience that. Good luck with the new tank set up.

    So, I boxed up and rearranged a bunch of stuff to make room for the tank and put the stand together today. It's level - yea! Tomorrow I will clean and set up the tank. But can the pair wait for the tank? Outlook not so good. All the wrigglers got eaten earlier today so now they are doing the maiting dance and cleaning a leaf on the amazon sword already. I hope they can wait two days before laying eggs. If not there will be some caviar left in the tank for the other fish.
