I would leave the eggs be for right now, most rams are pretty decent parents. They should guard and take care of the eggs. Good luck!

Hi Thanks

I have noticed the Cory's coming in for a quick egg every now and again so this morning I moved both parents and the eggs to the breading net so fingers crossed they will look after them and when the fry come out I will move the parents out
and feed them with hard boiled egg yoke

Put them back out. The breeding net will just stress the parents.
If you want to raise fry you need a second tank large enough to grow them on -100 litres plus - but once Rams get the hang of breeding they can often raise one or two fry in a community tank providing there is plenty of cover.

Rams are usually good parents but it takes a few practice runs.

Breeding nets are not suitable for breeding fish and should only be used as emergency separators, eg to keep a bullied fish away from the attackers, until better provision can be made.
