They have since successfully raised two group of babies and a third is hatching as I write this. They have proven to be great parents.
A breeder tank is often very stark because when I clean after the babies hatch, I must be able to do so without fear that I am sucking up any of the babies in my syphon hose. Babies can make a tank very dirty very quickly, because they eat exclusively freshly hatched brine shrimp. While I can clean the larger tanks once a week, I clean the breeder and infant tanks at least twice a week.
