i am so very happy i have fry, finally, i found them yesterday, i covered the cave with a pot and a net, so the other fish cant eat them, i have no idea how many are in there but they are there, the male has left the cave and i was told he wasnt needed anymore once they were sucking on their own i am hoping this is right,

i am happy,

Have you anywhere you can put them to keep them from being eaten?

02-20-2008, 09:14 AM
nope that is why it is set up like that, any other tank has preditors and the water conditions are all wrong for them,
i am hoping the pot will have enough algae growth to do them until i can let them out
thats my plan
did you see them hobbs?

i think i can see them! Congratulations Mitcore!!
