Hey Alqenco!Do these guys look healthy to you and how old do you think they are.That is the female next to that african dwarf frog for a scale comp.She sure does have some frayed fins dont she?I got her like that.13142



The male is picking on her a little but I dont know what to look for for mating rituals.

Looking good, I like the yellow.

Female will select a cave, when she is ready she will display in front of the cave, bending her body to show the male a bright red/pink belly.
When spawning is complete the male will stand guard outside and the female will not not allow the male back in the cave.

I used 4" flower pots with a notch cut in the edge just large enough to allow them to enter

Are they spawning sized yet?

Hard to say, the ones I had years ago were about 3" male, 2" female

not big enough, that's about the size of mine.
Breeder told me 6 more weeks, but I think it will be a little longer
