Several days ago Dominate male led the group around in what I assumed was a search for a suitable laying site. When ever fish got close he would chase them off. Every once in a while he would do a dance for a female.





One day later he is feverishly defending a area that leads to a cave under the stump on the left. He will not let any of the fish near not even the females.

You can notice the intense coloration as well (sorry not the best pics)





They very much remind me of peacock bass especially when displaying.

I can't get a visual on the nest but fingers crossed to see some little fry swimming about in the next few days. If on future nests I can intercept the eggs i will transfer to a rearing tub for better documentation and survival rates.

Your tank looks awesome, and im really interested in this breeding journal, would love to see how many of these guys you could end up raising in a tank that big. I was always impressed with your frog tanks on dendroboard, never thought you'd take the planted route.

Sorry mubender, it put a kink in my peaceful tank since these guys are predatory hunters but they are neat additions. She's got the scarlet badis in right now, you should jump on those. Much better coloration.

Hows the CPD's doing? I originally planed on breeding them and the chili rasbora but I am sure the dario will eat any of their fry.

Dario are smart little fish, I Like the looks of these little guys. Are they similar in size to the scalets? One of our LFS's tends to stock several species of badis, I want them badly lol but my tank would not allow it.

Nothing overly new to share, I set up a breeding tank for them and have managed to move two of the males but so far have been unable to catch any females. They are very timid paranoid little things. So used to the males chasing them (and now me) that they dart the second they see you approach the tank. One of them has either a really small infected bite or ick (its small white and looks like a tiny puff ball) I really want to get her out and treat before she transfers it to any other fish. The way the males nip at them I wouldn't be surprised if it was just a bite. Either way I want her treated.

I haven't spotted any fry from the two to three spawns that occurred in the 75gal. Eggs could of been eaten, maybe by dad.

The Dario are currently spawning in both the 75gal and the 10gal. Figures, I tried to grab my camera for a video and the battery is dead
