    So bummed.

    Just as the tank is finally ready for the apisto pair to get moved over, the male kills himself by getting lodged between the pre-filter sponge and the inlet. Dang. He was so beautiful,...

    Some people have luck with hard boiled egg yolk, but it can be messy. They are *tiny* when they first hatch. They need something they can fit in their mouths.
