Thanks, Yea I wish I could give all my dwarfs their own breeding tank, soon I hope to have a fish room with a small rack system and at least a good 4x10 gallon breeders. For now they are holding their own, they are pretty aggressive, not worse than an apisto, but for their tiny stature the breeding female fears nothing. She fattens up within days after the spawn, and is usually ready to go again in a few weeks.
The candidi fry got some microworms for the first time, they seem to be eating them. They are about to lift off the bottom and are scooting around upright like they are ready to eat. Hopefully the next batch will have a good number of survivors. This is a good training round though.
