Mine are still breeding. The strange thing is I'll see newly released larvae free floating for a day or two and then they disappear. Not sure where they've gone or possibly died? This just happened in two tanks.

Oh, yeah I have the same issue with my large tank and that is one of the reasons for the baby tank two years ago. I do have a cave in the volcano rock in the big tank and I assume they float in there (my reasoning for the disappearance).

Do you notice small opae ula roaming around later?


In my Alpha tank, i think the larvae are eating...

I do see young adults but not sure where they came from. I know they're attracted to light and the first few days I see them. Then the disappearing act. Thinking about setting up a small tank for the babies. It's extremely frustrating.

One option is to put them in something like this. Count how many and count again in two weeks.

Great idea. I can use this in my 10 gallon. That way I can see what is really going on. Thanks for the suggestion.
