Finally my quad of Ucayalis bred, 2 males and 2 females

Tank size:29 gallons

Filtration:Fluval 406

Temp:80 degrees

Current:Strong/highly aerated with powerhead(marineland 660)

Lighting: LED moonlights

pH:8.4

Alkalinity:120-180

Hardness:soft


Note:my water test kit is that easy dip type(Tetra easy strips)not sure how precise it is.

Their diet consisted of various veggies like cucumber,zuchinni,squash,pumpkin,occasional Cobalt flakes,Cobalt pleco wafers

I did 15% to 20% daily for a week then didn't do any water changes for 2 weeks. Let water get "old" but yet kept safe,I didn't see any eggs in caves(4 caves)
He must of had them in back or in a bogwood crack. I had no idea there was eggs till I seen some fry.
