Thanks everyone...P. chromogynos babies are doing great. Growing pretty fast. And I have 2 more Vic mom holding...my P. riponianus and my X. sp. "kyoga flameback". Hoping they do as well. And I'm still waiting on the N. rufocaudlis but feel pretty confident I'll see some of those too before long.

Paralabidochromis chromogynos...went to pull the female today to move her to a holding tank and she spit. Stripped the rest...20+ tiny tinies but all are fully formed. This is my 2nd spawn of these and I am so excited. My 1st spawn of them is a month old tomorrow. Go chromos!!!

Well...I counted this morning and I had 24. Lunch 24. Just went out to check them and what was in the box but one of the adult males...only 10 left. No idea how he got in the box. Its one of those hang on the inside ones from Ken's. I've used them a couple of times and had no problems. And I'm not sure how many of those 10 will survive...some are looking kinda puny...he probably beat the crap out of them and ate the ones he wanted to. I just am not having good luck with my chromogynos spawns...I'm sick :(

In the last 2 weeks my Neochromis rufocaudalis have produce over 90 fry from 3 different spawns. I also got over 60 fry from 2 Labrochromis ishmaeli spawns. My Haplochromis sp. "blue obliquidens" produce over 50 fry from 2 spawns. I also got 11 fry from 1 Paralabidochromis sauvagei (Makobe) spawn. The last 2 weeks have been very good.

My Neochromis omnicaeruleus -Makobe Island- are a very hard fish to tell when they are holding. I lost over 4 spawns in the last 2 months. The head shape and the blotch color around the mouth makes it very hard for me to tell when they are holding. I normally move my other females out of their tanks when I see the bottom of their mouth get dark. With the Neochromis omnicaeruleus this is hard to do. I'm just going to have to move them when I see they are not eating.
