Hey Guys,

The past couple days have been exciting ones. One of my wild caught Kapampa girls dropped her tube and, this morning, I awoke to her with a mouth full of eggs and tumbling :D I am pretty excited. Here is a couple pics of the parents...

Here are a couple shots of mom:





Here are a couple of dad:

I have been thinking about setting up a frontosa tank, your picks sure make me want to get going on the project. Your fish are outstanding! Where did you get those fronts?

Thank you for the kudos. I purchased my colony from Mike S., also known as "Calvin" on other sites (Modesto, CA). They were his wild caught kapampa breeding colony (2m & 6f). If you want more info on how to contact him, shoot me a PM.

Thanks, Russ

Mom is still holding (I plan on striping eggs on Wednesday).

Another girl has dropped her tube.

The next couple months could be fun (Lord willing) :D

I'll try to get up some pics soon.

Thanks for looking.

I went down to check on them tonight and caught them in the act. Not sure how many eggs I missed before, but while me and my son were observing, she layed 29 eggs for us. They were not done by the time I had to leave. Pretty cool! I'll try to get a pic of her holding tomorrow.
