Cool!
Make sure you put a cover on that tank. Those Macs love to jump.

For sure,

This is my second attempt at breeding these. The last time I only bought a pair. This time around Im going with a full group of teens, locally bred too so they will be a bit hardier. I hope they will pair off as they get older.

I'll keep ya'll updated with the progress in the next coming months.

Here's a quick tour of my fish/shrimp room and a quick video of adding the new little ones into the 35 gallon I have setup for them

Not yet the colors havent come in yet. I'm 95% sure there is atleast one male. He has a bit more coloring and a big black spot on the dorsal that is filling in.

You're making me want to get back into Macs. They look healthy and well fed.
