Well I have been expecting this for about 5 days and they finally have eggs again! And now I can have clean slate from my previous problems and raise up Salvini fry successfully! :D Pics will come up eventually. As soon as I have wrigglers and everything. I have a feeling my Salvini pair have spawned sometime today. They usually spawn during the day but in previous spawns they have spawned at night as well! :D :D

Thanks guys!

I will definately post some pics as soon as possible! I feel I have posted enough egg pictures from my previous spawns that you guys know how it all goes down. They spawned in the usual spot: the flower pot!

It is very exciting! And the addicting part of the whole hobby besides keeping them and watching them grow and show colors.

I will keep you guys updated as I usually do! :D

From all of my other spawns and including this one I would say once every 3 - 3 1/2 weeks. But thats with high protiened foods such as Brine Shrimp, Beefheart, Mysis Shrimp, Emrald variety, Bloodworms, and Plankton. All are frozen foods and I also throw in Flakes in the morning. Also I do weekly 25-30% syphons. And I raise the temperature to about 80-82 F.

Once cichlids start it's almost hard to stop them!
Hard ,try impossible short of seperating them to different tanks :wink: . They sometimes slow down but I've yet to see any stop.

Well my fry are freeswimming now and I have a video! I hope you guys enjoy it! I know Salvini are very protective of their fry and I really like it but I can't help but get annoyed because everytime I either take a pic or make a video they are both right up in my face and I can't get good shoots! :lol: :?

Here's the video link enjoy!! :D
