Medaka stopped using spawning mops.


Recommended Posts

I had been getting about 10 eggs off mops per day. I see her with eggs but they never end up on the mops and I can't find them. Mops are the pool noodle brillow pad type. I expect there is nothing I can do but thought I would ask just in case. First eggs hatched yesterday,  Thanks

Update 6/26/2024   Lost the breeding male so no new eggs in immediate future. The good news is there are 25+ fry and a few eggs that may hatch. The female is now outdoors, the fry are indoors in a tub 10-15 gallons that the breeding pair had been in. They are growing well and the plan is to move them outdoors early August.

Sorry to hear that the male passed. 

I’d second @Jovius ‘s comment on making a yarn mop.  I had several of the pool noodle/scrubber pad mops and a single yarn mop in my tank and most of my eggs were in the yarn mop. 

In fact when I had let string algae get a little out of hand, the handful of string algae had the more eggs in it then either of the other two options.
