A while back I noticed a couple of good-sized (5/16" +) Julidochromis regani fry in the upstairs 55.

Last night while feeding there was a cloud of teeny, tiny fry hovering over the rock they have staked out as their territory.

It's been awhile since I busted out the good camera, unfortunately. I have not been able to locate the battery charger. Definitely one the best looking Malawian fish, IMO. Such an array of colors.

Congrats Wyran!

This is one of two rusty fry that I found in the tank today. The mother appears to still be holding some fry in her mouth. Is this normal?

Yes it is common for one fry to escape while she still holds on to the others. In a day or so she will probably spit the rest.

Noticed a couple of days ago that there are several more N. multifasciatus among the shells.

Today when I went down to feed everyone, I noticed that one of the cherry red shrimp appears to be holding a clutch of eggs.

All three white worm cultures are massively reproducing ... started these by splitting a single small culture.

Probably another month or so of daily tending and they should be ready to start harvesting.

Noticed two more cherry red shrimp holding eggs yesterday.

Today when I was feeding everyone I noticed one of them seemed to have less eggs underneath and then I noticed that there appeared to be something tiny crawling around on the gravel.

Was almost too small to even see ... need to grab the hand magnifier from the garage and get a closer look.

Upon further inspection with the magnifier I can report that there are at least a dozen cherry red shrimp (the point where I stopped counting ... :lol: )

I had two mainganos and a rusty all holding at the same time this month. A couple days ago one maingano spit her fry and the other released them today. So far I have seen two fry hiding. The rusty is still holding but she is due to release the fry any day now.

The rusty must have released some because I spotted a fry under a rock but she is still holding others. Another rusty started to hold today as well.

It appears (one of the four) Sciaenochromis fryeri is now holding.
