#2 of 3 Cy. Afra "Cobue" @ dawn - funny how in this quad; they all hold @ the same time in a 2 or 3 day succession; can't get enough of these guys

Just watched my Red Zebras spawn. That male goes nuts when he is preforming stud duty :lol: I will be moving mom soon tho. Last 2 times she held the other female tore into her and she either dropped or swallowed her eggs. The first time the other female got her so bad she had a stump of a tail left, the next time wasn't as bad. Mean female is on her last days of holding, so will move the new mom in a couple days. I am hoping she can hold a few days before I have to move her.

I'm pretty sure one of my demasoni is holding. What do you guys think?


If anyone has a link on how to take care of the babies if she is holding I would really appreciate it.
