Yeah, I made one to get my blue pearls out of my tank. I got all them out expect one SOB that didn't want to go into the trap. He had to be netted.

Other than leave them alone? Nope. In fact i have at least 6 berried females as of last night. I did however put on of the berried ones in a breeder box a couple weeks back and she gave birth in that with no problems. I left a male in there with her and she was berried again within a couple days.

Here's the strange part. They never bred until i got lazy on the maintenance of that tank. Oddly enough, my cherry population in the same tank nearly died off in the same time span. They are in a breeding tank now, so i can keep an eye on them better now.

Maybe the Malawa's were pissed off that the cherries were around and when they died they had a party?

Well, they are actually Blue Rillis culls...but that's because they look like Red Rilli but can breed blues..

I got them from ohbaby, member on this site.
