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.....
Good job buddy, now you are proud of your fish!
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.
things have "progressed" alot since my last fts. not exactly for the better either.....but it was much worse at one point. still some work left to do to get it nice again, but i still like it as is and thats all that matters. oh ya put three small angels in and removed all the lemon tetras
Looking nicer, downoi in the front? I like the angels, specific type?
thanks, still a work in progress. yep downoi. grows a bit slower without pressurized. not too sure on the angel specifics......they are a tad stunted though. didnt fare too well in my other tank while they were growing up
this guy is growing back his missing ventral since being in this tank. really like the colors
