Well either my count was off or both my lab and my zebra spit or swallowed early :( neither one are holding now and I saw them both eating yesterday. The lab looks so much smaller than the male I buoght at the same time and they were about the same size then. Since both females are in my main tank I have no hope for the fry even if my count of days was off but I can't help but stare @ the rocks just hoping to see a little face poking out...

I had 7 females this past week. 2 Rusties, Ps. Acei (Tanzanian), Ps. Crabro, 2 C. Afra (Lupingu), and a Melanochromis Auratus. Been a busy week. I stripped the females and there were a total of 102 babies. Most were first time mothers.

In the past week-

Geophagus steindachneri- insatiable. Can't slow this boy down. In one weekend, he has 3 girls holding.

Our VC-10s :P

Last night saw baby buffalo heads (Steatocranus causarius)!

Ok I know this is not a good thing, but had a male albino socolofi and female mangano spawn yesterday! has anyone ever seen this combo? I don't know why the female chose the albino male rather than the mangano male ? I currently have 4 batches of OB fry 1 batch yellow lab 1 batch pure albino socolfi and a batch of rubescent clowns awaiting deportation to the fish store!

I just transferred all my fish from my 37G to my newly set-up 55G on Monday and last night I noticed that my female Hongi Is. Jacobfreibergi is holding (YAY!) I'm going to remove the female today and put her back in the 37G which has 2 giant danios and a 2.5" BN pleco in it and see if she'll hold to term this time (2nd attempt)

For those with Demasoni, do you tend to notice them spawning at any particular times, or lights on or off, etc. My males tend to do the shimmy about every fifteen minutes if I am watching them, yet I havent actually seen them spawn yet. But every two or three days I seem to have a new holding female. I guess I just dont catch them in the act. Must be shy, lol. I need more tanks for fry, I'm at 43 and have five more batches in the ovens. Glad that I have a few shops willing to buy juvies.
