In the last photo you can see that we moved one of the rocks to give her a bit more cover. I’m convinced that she chose that spot for her den because it gives her a direct line of site to the dogs...Yesterday evening we did a water change in Anya‘s tank. She seem to appreciate it, but stay put in her den. This morning I came out to find it she had laid eggs the wall of the aquarium! She seems to of knocked a big rock out of the way (accidentally?) and the eggs were completely exposed to view. This was quite serendipitous, as I was being interviewed for a Facebook live feed- so that added to the excitement. She excepted a large chunk of shrimp for the audience, but continued to groom her eggs.
Currently, the eggs are clear and white, they don’t look fertile yet. I’m hoping that it’s just too soon to tell- but I certainly have all my fingers crossed!
