How long do cyps hold?
1 - 1 of 7 Posts
My fry have absorbed their egg sac around day 20 or so, but my adult females will hold longer if they feel threatened. There's also a difference between my wild caught cyps who hold longer than their F1 offspring.. but they're kept in very different set ups, so it's likely due to the environmental variables. I have observed that females who hold beyond 25 days tend to be in poor shape and take longer to regain body mass and color.
