I use a guppy breeding box with narrow slats for the larvae to swim out to escape the mother lohena. You need to do this because lohena eat their young. I saw it happen with my own eyes. You then need to transfer the larvae to a higher salinity tank. Otherwise they will die within 24-36 hours. So far, transferring them to a 1.018-1.020sg tank keeps them alive for a week. I have not successfully kept them alive any longer than that. I tried all kinds of feed but nothing works so far.So you saw the mother eat the babies?
Why wouldn't the Opae Ula share his food? Because he was a little shellfish
