Another cloud of J. regani fry under the rock in their tank ... probably a consequence of the new 30G species-only tank they are now in ... and and feeding a bunch of white worms I harvested here about a week ago.

Was not able to make the OCA meeting this past Friday, but will have J. marleri, J. regani, and N. pulcher for the August meeting BAP.

Got the wife some angelfish for Mother's Day a few weeks ago at the MCAS auction - two large black veil angels and two smaller zebra angels.

It looked like several of them came down with ich or some sort of white fungus ... cranked the temperature in the tank up to around 84F and treated the tank with some 30+ year-old malachite green (Nox-ich) ... that seems to have taken care of it.

Anyways they have spawned twice - probably 300 eggs each time - but they are gone the next day (eaten I would assume)

It appears the they have paired up with the other variety ... two black veil + zebra combos ...

Need to get some slate so I can pull the eggs.

The surviving J. ornatus - which I assume is female - paired up with one of her offspring (I had three remaining, after submitting 6 for BAP) and spawned ... probably about 15 or 20 eggs on the back wall of the 10G tank they are in.

Unfortunately, she killed off the other two juveniles just before she did ... :(

Have two pairs of Julidochromis dickfeldi in the 20G Long that I removed the Neolamprologus cylindricus from ... at least one of the two pairs have spawned.

Noticed a number of fry (of various sizes) over the last day or so, hovering around the rock work that I built, that one of the pairs have claimed.

So that makes five species (out of six in the genus Julidochromis) that have bred for me.

Only marksmithi left to do ... :thumb:

I thought this one was a dude. Eggspot and everything. Now I know an eggspot is no guarantee that it's male.

I'm interested to see how the fry look if any survive. Image
