Oh dear. Must have been a tense mood in the fish tank this morning.

Will you try transferring the frys to a safe area next time? Presumably they're not really dependent on their parents, as such?

EDIT: Also, I know next to nothing about fish - does the male inseminate the female, or the eggs themselves after she has released them?

Water amber alert! Seriously though, that's sad news, I hope the next batch does better.

I'll give them one more go; and after that I'll steal the eggs. I've been told it is a *lot* easier if the parents raise them; but also it takes a few tries for them to learn the ropes. I believe the female lays the egg and the male swim over them ….

The parents does handy things like keep the eggs free of fungus and remove the bad eggs so it doesn't spread to the good ones. Depending on the breed they will also protect the frys and help them find food (some fishes will eat the their frys as fast as they hatch; others will keep them safe in their mouth until they are large enough to swim freely). One of the reason I want the golds to breed is because they are short lived (I think i said that earlier) and they are also much more fragile than a lot of other fishes (its pretty hard to kill an angel or swordtail for example).
