looks like an Auratus beside your Chindogo saulosi. love the look of the Auratus but they seem to have a bad rep. How many do you have and any problems? Bill

Tinng321 has had a death in the tank which is being discussed now. Look for other threads on this.

I have about 6 or 7 Auratus. To be honest, they are not too bad. I have 1 demasoni now (2 died from sickness), 7 red zebras, 4 albino socolofi, 3 saulosi, 3 cobalt blue, 2 OB, 7 yellow labs, 2 ice blue, 3 small peacocks, 5 medium peacock, 1 medium hap, and 4 small haps. They get along pretty well. There is some aggression but very minimal.

Here are some photos. No problem so far. Hope it stays that way. I honestly think my demasoni died because my brother over fed them.

Overfeeding does not kill demasoni. IME they die from being harassed by tank mates and over time they become susceptible to stress related illnesses like bloat.

I have separated the holding female to a separate tank. When will she split out her young? Do I have to do water changes during the waiting period? If yes, how much and how often?

Females hold an average of 28 days. The holding tank should be just like the main tank with filtration, heat and weekly 50% water changes.

to me it looks like she is still holding. You should be able to see the fry/eggs in the mouth if you look from the front.
