My pair of pink Vieja fenestratus produced some eggs this weekend! I'm rather excited and am hoping for the best!

Here's one of the eggs, then the rest are some shots I took this evening of the two.

Just a heads up to anyone in Florida - if these hatch and survive , free fry to anyone who wants them once they grow up a little!

They hatched today!

No good photos yet of the fry, BUT, I did get some of the parents today - WOW, what a difference in coloration they have!

The female (which has the bulk of the dark markings) has almost twice as much dark markings on her today!

The male (mostly orange now - the larger of the two) has lost almost all of his black on the body except for that which is on his fins!

I can see the fry wiggling around in the gravel, but because of where they hatched, haven't been able to get a good camera angle on them!

More photos to come as they "develop" LOL!

Giggle....TFG there you go again Mr. funny man. I should be getting my 125g into a couple of weeks. Then I will have 2 tanks, doesn't really qualify for multiple tanks though. I want a GT, a Texas, EBJD, and a few others in the worst kind of way. I would have to get different tanks for them .....not going in with Fedor in the 125g. I'm going to set the 30g up to breed feeders. I have a 14 x 14 extra room that is "my room". I have been dreaming of setting it up as a aquarium room.......I want I want I want :D
