I just got the multies two weeks ago, but I've had the WC Calvus for 2 months now.

They really look like calvus fry? The multies have been protecting them so I figured that they were... maybe they're just camping out on the other end of the tank.

--Edit
It looks as though they are Calvus fry, from looking at pictures of other Multie spawns.

Maybe the multies are just lonely - at least some one's doing it for them :p

I'd syphon those suckers and start rearing them, those calvus are nice.
I have to get a 10g set up, it looks like the Calvus are going to spawn again, so I doubt I'll have any shortage of fry. Once my sponge filter comes in the mail, I'll start the transfer.

The Male is 4-4 1/2" and the female is maybe 2 1/2" max. I'm horrible at sizing fish up from glance, but these are my closest estimations.

and as fast as calvus grow, in about 2 years, they'll be a sellable size... :wink:

You can get them to an inch in as little as 3 to 4 months :D

whats the update on the fish?? 8)
Sponge filter still hasn't come, but there are a still many tiny calvus fry swimming about, but there is no doubt that some have gone "missing". I blame their father. When I get the new tank set up, I'll post a real update.
