Stussi: Our tanks seem to be on the same schedule....2 of my "juvie" dems are holding now too! Hey everybody else: Go on over to the "Rate this Tank (Mbuna style)" thread and rate Stussi's tank, and keep that thread going...I want to see more! Back on topic: These are my first cichlids, so this is my first spawn...pretty excited and all...are dems good first-timers or am I not likely to see these first ones come to fruition? I plan to remove them to their own tank in awhile (logisitics of setting up another tank are a bit of a pain right now).

Alpha: I'm picking up a 10g when I get home from the Airport on Wednesday night and getting it set up, hopefully in time. The one that is holding right now is actually a bit older than my others, 6 of my fish were almost 2" when I got them and the other 6 were a little more than 1", so I'm hoping this isn't the first time she has been "with Fry" and I get some keepers!

Best of Luck to you!!

I stripped a 2 inch Labidochromis textilis tonight.
She gave me 20 fry.
Amazing for such a small cichlid.

Any thing special you did to get the Obliqs to spawn? I have a group 3 males, 6 females for about 6 weeks, no spawning yet.
They are in a 55 with some yellow labs, but the labs don't harass them any.
Do you think they would do better in a species only tank? I do have a place to move the labs to.
In another tank I have 4 Rusty females holding.
