Hi we are newbies, but I am sure our Acei is holding. You can see the eggs in her mouth. She is about 3.5 inches and the male is about 2.5 inches. I am surprised because they seem so young. I kind of thought we would have some time to worry about the breeding issues. I have another tank so I will remove her to try and reduce stress, but with the fish being so young what are the chances of a successful batch of fry?


Thanks for your input. Sorry the picture is not the best shot.

I'm pretty new to fish keeping too. Just started at the end of last summer.
I haven't had any of our 3 acei hold yet. I think I have 1male and 2 females. They were all 3 bought at the same time and the same size but the one I'm assuming is male is now the biggest at almost 4".

I have had some of our other fish hold though and have some fry from a couple batches. Since the acei haven't breed yet I can't say for sure about them but with my other fish it took them a couple times at holding before they got it right and had fry.

Good luck :thumb:
