Lately whne my group of blue and black auratus have been laying eggs they have been coming out deformed. They start off normal and then when they become tadpoles in the egg they are just a perfectly round clear bubble with eyes and you can see all there insides. they live for about 2 days in the water then they die. i never had this problem before. just wonderinbg if anyone else has this problem or can tell me how to fix it. thanks.

I think I have seen this before. The tadpole will be perfectly round and more transparent than normal. Sorry I can't tell you what causes it but I have found these tadpoles usually become normal and hatch out fine.

I've had this problem big time with D. azureus. I read a post somewhere about how increasing calcium can help all sorts of egg deformities. So I started boosting calcium and things seem to be going well so far.
