One lab spit this morning. Another lab and a zebra holding, could spit any day now. I'm getting a little frustrated with my males. They have terrible taste in women. I've had six spawns altogether and they have yet to pick the best of my females.

Hi everyone,

I have a female Maingano holding! I caught them breeding last night while feeding the fish. I removed the female immediately into a cycled 20 gallon. Did I remove her too soon? Since she will not be eating, will I lose the beneficial bacteria in the 20 gallon tank? Should I put a little food in daily even though she will not be eating? How often should I do water changes?

Thanks,

Ryan

I just stripped my SRT Hongi and for it being her first time and knowing that hongi fry are bigger usually.... She isnt full grown yet but I ended up getting 26 little ones out of her. I was shocked there was so many. She was so full her head was huge and her body was slimmed down. Glad I got them out so she can eat. I bet that was a mouthful. Next week I will be stripping my white top high north afra for the first time

Question for you guys,
I just stripped 5 fry from my Yellow Lab. Where should I keep them? Will my spare 10 gallon tank work with filter? I'm just afraid it's too big for 5 fry and they won't find the food and there will be lots of leftovers.

The 10G is fine and they will learn to find the food. Vacuum up the leftovers and add a bristlenose to get anything you miss.
125G Aulonocara, Malawi Haps, Vics (trial), S Polli
75G Demasoni, Labs, Cyno hara, Met estherae, S Multipunctata
75G Calvus, Caudopunctatus, Cyp Kerenge, S Petricola
33G Neo omnicaeruleus; 33G Flameback Kisumu; 33G P nyererei Igombe; 33G Hap ruby green

I currently have 5 of my 8 female Demasoni holding! Still have a bunch of their fry growing right now good thing I have another 20G ready to go. Do Dems ever stop breeding? It seems like this is all they do.

I don't think they do, BigTuck! Mine managed to carry without my noticing and spit in the tank ... I expected them to get eaten but all three of them that I spotted that first time are alive and kicking (finning?) today. I think they may actually make it in the tank. And my two females are carrying again. I'm going to be reshuffling that tank soon and adding more females though, because my poor females are looking a little frazzled from the attentions of the male.

Just stripped my yellow lab; 18 fry. It still looks like she is holding, but from what i could see there is nothing left, is this normal? She's acting a bit strange, and since it was my first time stripping I sure hope I didn't hurt her.
