Hi opinions please,

Over the weekend my BN moved his cave and ejected the pictured eggs. They look fertilised to me but that doesn't say much :-(

Why do ye think these eggs were ejected?




Thx
Q

There was nothing that could have disturbed him? Never had them rejected in the past so a little unsure!
How many adult males have you? Maybe they were fertilised by another male?

They do look fertilized.
Some times inexperienced males do this a few times until they get used to parenthood.
Sometimes even experienced males do this. But I think it is unintentional.
I've had males that could never keep a bunch of eggs in a cave.
These things happen.

put the eggs in a hatchery ( not a net ) with the sloths up the sides not the ones with the holes in the bottom.
With the ones with the holes in the bottom, as the eggs mature and soften they can get pulled through the holes killing the egg.
Add an airstone for flow and oxygen.

Thanks for the replies, think I'll put this one down to inexperience. Pretty certain I have 1 male and 2 females. I only have a breeder net not the hatchery type but it could go directly over an air stone, too late for this lot but I'll keep an eye out.
