Pulled 30 fry from one female, and the other female is holding.
Out of my first 5 spawns, i have managed to save only 1 fry, which is now about 2 inches.
They had not spawned for 6 months, so this is pretty cool!

Old pictures, but they look the same today.
Ill try to get pix of the fry, and the one young female i grew up.

Yes, unless i have another accident, this batch of 30 will mostly make it, the egg sack is gone.
a couple of the fry look floaty though.
The other female looked like only day 1, so it depends if she wants to hold this time, or perhaps i will strip her in a week or so.

:P great news, they are breeding over here as well - i wonder if these are a seasonal spawner.
Thomas in Germany had a spawn and the only other group here in the UK had just had 2 spawns. I hope to acquire some more very soon but can only have 2 females so was wondering if 5 males 2 females would work since my last male killed off all the females :evil:

I would think 5:2 would work.
give the Alpha male, other males to fight with instead of picking on females?

My male does not pick on the females, he just hides.
Mostly the 2 females beat up the beta male, so i took him out.
