sorry, I had intended posting some videos of the fish spawning but I made a total mess of my photo bucket account, so I made a u-tube channel and have started to load them there for anyone who is interested in these great little fish here is the link to the channel

there are one or two other videos there too, sailfin tetras and angelfish, but mostly cupido, I will load the other cupido videos once I get hold of the computer for a while... having teenagers in the house tends to block the computer, phone, tv etc... though the lawn mower, washing machine etc tend to stay free

ha ha kids...... nothing about that in the parenting books!
hope the videos help you with your cupids, let me know if anything is not clear or is missing from the sequence and I will load some more. if you have 9-10 minutes to spare try watch the sailfin video of the male encroaching on another males teritory, when they display and fight they put any apistogramma to shame....... am I allowed to say that on a cichlid forum!

Dude those tetras are so cool! Crenuchus spilurus, never heard of them. I'm going to try to find some ASAP. Is that male tending eggs? Kind of weird thinking about a fish like this showing almost the same care that a cichlid does.
