some of you may remember that I had a one of the pair of breeding convicts spawned out a large brood of fry, well since then I have had three spawns, two never got seeded by the male. but now I have another well seeded spawn. I am going to have baby every were,, lol oh the joys of convicts..

Sounds like you have a pair of guppies on your hands. I hope you have an LFS or friends to give the babies to.

lol, congrats Pro. Seems you being a Daddy is very becoming of you. I have heard with certain cichlids, that they are profuse spawners. You will definately have your hands full.

Don't know what you are going to do with them all. Many LFS's won't take them, as they have so many. Good luck with your parenting :ezpi_wink1:

lol yea. the LFS do not and will not caring them. for the most part, I just may be raising my own fish food.. if needed.

bad thing is a want to spawn my dwarfs but, guess I should stop moving my convict fry to the breeding tank, lol

Wow! Babies everywhere!! Good luck.

Maybe you can sell some on here to people? You can ship fish right? (I know, dumb question...)

I am in the same boat Pro, I keep seperating the pairs and more pair up, we found new fry last week, as much as I hate to do it, I am going to have to let nature take its course this time.
