I just noticed my PJ Cardinal has a mouth full of eggs! He just spit them out a little bit and then sucked them back in!
He's still keeping his mouth a little open and I can see the little egg/eyeballs!!!
They must like the new tank. That's good. :)

Ahh nobody wants PJ Cardinals. I don't need anymore either.

I was busy cleaning the tank for the last 30 minutes. Can't take pics all messy... ;)

Wow... you hear about the Banggai's popping up with a mouthfull from time to time, but can't recall ever running into anyone who had this with PJ's. Wonder why?

Congrats Karin. Evidence, yet again, that all is happy in your tank!

I'm having trouble getting good pics of it. He even spits them out and sucks them back in ... but of course I can't get the timing right on that...

I read that the bangaiis are just alot easier to raise as the fry are a little farther along when they are released by the male. I cant find my book atm but I believe most, if not all, cardinals are mouth brooders although the bangaiis are supposed to be the easiest to raise. I know it said PJ were supposed to be the second easiest though because a friend of mine was asking about his.
