Hello everyone. My Dolphins where just spawning and I am not shure if the male was fertilizing the eggs. They would go through there ritual but before the female could scoop up the eggs in her mouth, the male would get first crack at them and swallow them. The female dropped what looked like at least 50-75 eggs and he ate about half of them. Are the eggs going to be fertilized? This is her first spawn. He has spawned with another female once and she held for a day or two, then swallowed them. Im wondering if he doesn't know what he is doing yet? Anyone else go threw something like this? Thanks.

Im am shure it is a male now as she has been holding for 12 days and I can now see the fry in her mouth!!! So I guess he did fertilize the eggs. Very excited, thanks for the replys.
