PostSubject: Longfin Browns   Fri Mar 13, 2009 9:55 am

We have a couple of trio's of longfin browns (all longfins) and last night we had a double bubble. Will try and get a piccie later.

What's even better is that we put in a newly matured male and took out the other one (he has gone for a rest lol) and we knew the new male was trying to get the females in the cave, but was surprised to get a double all the same cheers

Double bubble, meaning he's spawned with both females at the same time. You can see the 2 clutches of eggs joined together in the piccie.

Thanks J

I think it's a great photo too lol Not bad for an old Sony Mavica huh?? lol! I get better pics with it than Wayne does with his fairly new kodak Shocked

The caves are something we've been working on for a few months, modifying them with hints and tips from this site. We'd been using the acrylic bottom more to aid the moving of the cave and male to the fry tank without distressing him to much by keeping the water in there with him.

We have learnt (from here) to keep the entrance really small and these are the ones that are being used to spawn in now. The ones with larger entrances are going to be modified so to reduce the entrance size Smile We also use as a lid for darkness what should be used for the bottom. It's one of those plate/saucer items that sit under the plantpot, but we use it as a lid. We decided not to block the hole at the bottom of the pot because if the male decides to abandon the eggs, we can put an airstone in through the opening and airate that way.

Boy, is that hard to describe lol

Well, we have been away for just over 24 hours, had the lights on timers in the fish room (worked fine) and discovered that the longfins have hatched.

We put the cave with the male and eggs in the nursery tank as we expected this to happen. All the same though, it's great when things go as they should Smile

Latest update .........

They are free swimming now, and some have left the cave, and there appears to be some albinos :!: :!: :!:

Looks like we have one of them that has an albino gene in them lol

At a guess I would say about 25% albinos

Will try and add photos later.

Cheers
