Thanks jschwabe5,
The two big dominant males in this tank are this Phillippine Blue Silver Veil,

and this Phillippine Blue Pinoy,

Both have a body size larger than four inches or so in diameter! They are beauties!

The Pinoy is my favorite, his color is extraordinary! I have a sunset blushing male about his size, he is the beast in my 180 gallon and I've watched him bully other males away from females who just laid eggs. Any Pinoy babies?

Thanks!
I'd like to see that blusher! I haven't had the Pinoy spawn that I know of.

I do have a trio that spawn about every 3 weeks though.
Two male Phillippine Blue Platinum Marbles (brothers), and a Phillippine Blue Zebra Pearlscale female!
This picture is from a year ago, the tank had only been set up a month.

They usually tend eggs for three or more days, then they disappear.
A couple of times they have tended wigglers, until they became swimmers.
Here is the little lady watching some fry.

Your angels seem to really enjoy your tank from the eggs that they layed, congrats!

Dosed 26 ml of Gluteraldehyde, with syringe, so I could spot dose a few areas, will do daily for now.
Did a 50% WC on the tank. Cleaned glass. Moderate pruning.
Tried to remove as many BBA infected leaves as I could. Dosed fertilizers. Upped my CO2 a little.
Cut lights back another half hour. Lowered brightness to 75%.

I have had this Ozelot Swordplant for a year now.
Had to share a picture of this new leaf it has grown! This sucker is a full 12" long!

Sorry for the reflections!
