High guy's Laughing
just a few pix of the pepps for you peruse
My biggest female .

And the male ( from his best angle )

A couple of the smaller females ( which I think are the ones actually breeding (when it happens :roll: )


And yes they have spawned succesfully , they've had a few batches of with minimal success , but 1 batch come good with about 20 good fry , so I tried a different approach and dumped the breeder net as soon as they started looking like fish -- I ended up with 9 , so I'll grow them out and see who's female.

High guys , a few quick pix of the male pepp ,spotty wot- actually showing off a bit.



They're still not breeding super solid yet , allthough I'm soaking another piece of wood and a piece
of mopani ( which is apparently good for dumping lots of tannins and softening up the water a bit).

Thanx Mooo and wolverine, Mooo: you could always try purchasing some L183's - they keep the white tail and dorsal edge, only prob is there isn't a lot of them in OZ - there here but expect to pay a nice $$$.
