My Saulosi are breeding left and right. Unfortunately I can't find lfs who are interested in taking some off my hands. What other avenues do you all use it any. I'm considering removing rock work to eliminate hiding spots. Also heard some use other fish to hunt down fry. Suggestions?

Do you have Synodontis multipunctatus in the tank? I would not remove the rocks even temporarily. I usually end up removing mine maybe 1X per year but always for a different reason...like to net a holding mom.

Find a club within a 2 hour drive that has auctions and donate the 2" juveniles.

I have now found a store who would take them. No store credit but would take them. I remove my rocks weekly to clean them because of diatom problem anyways so was thinking that I would leave them out during that period (30-60 minutes).

The multipunctatus are going to get the fry when they are first spit, and overnight. Removing the rocks during a cleaning will not help fry control IMO.

I'm getting four Synodontis Luccipinus hopefully they will help but they are still small.

The lucipinnis will help but multipunctatus are better at fry control.

The multi's are fine in a 55G...I thought your priority was fry control. You have more issues with fry than most, since for most the adults eat any fry.

Thanks for your info. Yes it's been a bit surprising to have as many survivors as I've had as I only have two piles of river rock (small ones) in the tank.
