Eggs no more...

Well, turns out either the male or female JD (or both) found the wriggles to be a tasty treat. They ate them on the 3rd day. I did managed to see actual fry, and hatching, at one point I seen up to 10 wriggling on the clay pot waiting for mother to collect. (eat!)
Think I have learnt a lesson with these pair now. When eggs are spawned in future, I will remove the clay pot & eggs to a separate tank, with plenty of aeration and nice clean water. Raise fry manually!
