Nice
My rams recently spawned aswell the eggs seemed to have hached but no babies. They most likley got eaten but iv read that they dont become free-swimming until 3-5 days after they hatch. Is this true and if so where are they in the 3-5 day periodof non-free-swimmingness?

Once the eggs hatch, parents like to move the wigglers around a lot. They probably have them stashed out of sight.

Very nice, Gareth. BTW, what's up with the bluish tone to the picture?

There is a very, very fine haze on the glass that I was zooming through (shot taken from the end of the tank). The lights on this tank are very purple and it just gave the picture an unusual cast.

That explains it. Thought you had some blue LEDs on at the same time.

Great shot of the nest. So should he start adding day old baby brine or cyclopeeze to the water to ensure the wrigglers can eat soon? What fry food works well in a planted tank if you are attempting to raise them there without removing to a separate tank?

I just lost my 2+ yr old golden after a water change, guess it was getting pretty geriatric. Going to look for more at local club auction, now I am really eager to get breeding to go.

Did you raise the temp? I have read online breeding is best prompted by raising temps to 86-90F. In the Llanos it gets up to 95 in breeding season. I keep this tank at 84, pH 6.2-6.5 with Seachem acid buffer, no CO2, kH 0-0.5, gH 7, 446tds. There aren't too many plants other than valisneria that will tolerate 90s and keep growing well. Currently I have some Java fern, riccia, anubias, baby tears, amazon sword, 1 drarf crypt, and polysperma growning well in this low maint tank.

What high temp plants are working for you

Well, my tank stays at 78* and my pair just spawned. Guess they didn't know any better .

Sláinte!
