3 Cyp Leptosoma Blue Flash. Had to tear the 55 gallon tank apart to get her. Only 3 babies. 3 more than I had!! I'm tryng to build my colony up. Started with 4, 1M 3 females. Last time I caught her at night, and the babies got killed by larger Saulosi in the tank. This time, they get a 10 gallon tank to themselves after I let them out of the breeder net.

Also saw one tiny Similis fry in my 29 gallon. Not sure if there are any more!

I've always loved the Mpanga's, and some days I wish I still had mine. The only thing I don't miss is the aggression, lol, they were more aggressive than what my L. fuelleborni are now.

Brichardis are on spawn 4 in a row...like clockwork. Saulosi, Rusty, Lab, Estherae, Acei holding. With 10 tanks, I'm phasing out of breeding..I don't know how people do it with more than that. With a job and 50 percent water changes weekley, I'm beat. No one in Florida wants them, and my fish are very excited on water changes, thus giving me lots of babies.. I'm being run over run! I think I'll get rid of the smaller 4 fry tanks. I've been moving fish to make more show tanks than breeding tanks. I may keep the Simils and Tropheus in their own tanks and sell a few babies atta time(to pay for food). I hope all of your fish are as prolific as mine!!!!
