I have had this pair of trifasciata for about a month or so. For the first two weeks the male was being very territorial towards the female, chasing her every chance he had, and her colors were quite grey. I started to wonder if I had a sneaker. Then one day she turned yellow, the territorial behavior stopped and a few weeks later there was a small spawn. I'm not sure where they egg laying happened or when but one evening saw her with 3-4 swimmers. Next day they were gone and the male was back to being aggressive.
Photos are from Sunday with th fry. Maybe you can see one above the root there to the right. And a FTS from around the time the fish were added.
My goal is not to have a breeding tank but would like them to have the opportunity to be successful raising their spawn.
I have 3 otos, 6 amano, 6 CRS, 5 rasbora, 2 apisto, 1 SAE, plans to get 3 more rasbora and 12 pygmy cory, and maybe another female apisto.
