What's That Bug? does not endorse extermination

Upon my return from visiting mom in Ohio, I learned that neighbor Sandy who fed the fish noticed that all the 3 week old fry being raised by Lefty and Digitalis had vanished.  Though I don’t know for certain, I saw that there were new eggs.  Perhaps the three week old fry went from being children that needed to be defended to a cannibalistic hoard trying to eat the new eggs.  I suspect the fry became a meal for the parents in the interest of defending their new brood.  The eggs hatched about Thursday, June 24, and the parents have moved them several times.  I ran the filter for a few days and changed some water, but I shut the filter off again since a favorite place to place the brood is on the filter intake tube.
