Parental behaviour of H. multispinosa pairs was monitored in outdoor ponds under three different adult sex ratios. No clear effects of sex ratio on parental behaviour were found. In general female parents spent more time with their young, made fewer excursions away from their young, and engaged in less aggression and courtship while away, than male parents did. Males in the 5 male: 7 female treatments who deserted their families spawned a minimum of one day later with females who had been alone at least six days.
