Interesting, what was the outcome? I imagine the babies had a feast.
Current stock-2 F1 Breeding pairs of Chuco Micropthalmus, F1 Theraps Lentiginosum (2 breeding pairs), Theraps Coeruleus (1 breeding pair), 7 5-8" F0 Ornatum "Rio Choco", 2 Beani "White" and about 400 Micropthalmus fry!

As the eggs approached hatching time, the fry could sense this, and would pick at the weakened shells until it ruptured. Yes, they ended up snacking on the whole spawn.
