I have a small group of sp. black bembas, 1m/5f. The 4 sub-dom females have all held to term (all on their first try) and I have 20 fry in the same tank. However the alpha female has never succesfully held to term, she always seems to spit or eat her eggs after only a few days (she has spawned at least 6 times). It appears as if she is more concerned with keeping her status than rearing fry. I'm wondering if this is normal behavior? Has anyone else experienced this?
