Wow congrats! Now the hard part comes because of the tricky fry rearing and hatching. Tank looks great as well.

Thanks and yep, very tricky. As these are the first few spawns they are still learning how to properly care for and NOT eat them.

Hi clau, yep those are eggs. They seem to prefer crypt leaves as spawnIng sites. Thanks

Came home from work to the third spawn in last 4days. New female each time obviously. This one also chose a crypt leave, not as nicely laid out as the last go around, but better than the first female.

Think I might just let them try to raise them in this tank as is, minus a buch of tetras. Tried incubating half of the last batch with no success, maybe a wiggler or two. Suspect it will take the females more than once to get it down. Last few clutches were observed being eaten, although slowly, by the mother throughout a period of 16 hrs.

Got a few pics of the recent spawn, but not much different than the last. I do have a pic of the male courting the female though.....

Thanks clau!

*********

my remaining two fry (had three) are doing great, the tank, not so much. due to human error, the tank went from 79-80f down to 68f in a period of 20 hours. two species of crypt didnt like that, and decided to melt. they fry survived, i dont know how.....but they are twice the size, can even make out the fins and pupils now. they are chowing on microfauna in a breeder box.
