PostSubject: Late christmas present...   Thu Jan 13, 2011 2:55 pm

well i did my usual tonight when i got hm. put some food in the tank for the L333s, peps n corys. thought id have a look at the filters with the flash light to see if there were any cory julii fry. noticed they had spawned again bout a wk ago. and what did i unexpectedly find?!!!!
THIS!!!!




seems my male has been hiding in his cave for a reason Very Happy. luckily the cave is on an angle so i couldnt see in, otherwise i probably would have been stupid enough to shine the torch in n get him to boot his eggs like my albino longfin used to...

if anyone has any questions about how i got the pep bns to breed in the first place, well nothing really. i mean literally nothing. for the past 3 wks all iv done is feed the fish. no water changes or anything. may sound slack but iv been planning to empty the tank n start a new project but well thats gonna have to wait now lol
ever since i lost my albino longfin pair (female died recently :cry: ) i havnt really expected any breeding as i wasnt entirely convinced the pep pair had bred before or the new female was mature enough. i dont know which of the females is the mum or even if both of them spawned but i do know im 1 happy chappy right now cheers

Nice one mate!

Wish my peps would spawn! I think the female is just about mature enough...only problem is they are in the community tank with the discus, acaras and rams...any fry would be munched down so fast!
