    Bummer. I bet someone who is into pottery could make some DIY...

    Update: We have eggs!!! Noticed one fish doing some odd stuff in her (at least I think it's a "her") hiding spot. Looked closer and noticed a bunch of eggs stuck to the side of a shell!!

    Sorry... she's really got the eggs tucked into a corner, tried to get pics but no luck...

    Well... the few eggs I could see have disappeared. From what I have read the fry will stay hidden for a while so I'm not sure what to expect... don't feel like moving rocks to look for eggs or fry, don't want to disturb them and cause problems... so I guess it's a waiting game...

    More eggs! These ones are a brownish color, the first ones I saw were white. Not sure if that means anything...

    These ones are also more out in the open which means I have pics!

    Thanks! They have eaten some of the second batch of eggs... as of this morning the batch in the first pic appeared untouched, but the batch in the second photo was almost gone. Here's hoping they figure out this parenting thing soon...

    On a different, but related, note... I have a 45 hex tank at my parent's house (roughly 11 hours drive). If I can get out there (maybe Christmas) to get it, and convince my wife, would that make a good tank for these guys with a big rock pile in the middle? I don't know the exact dimensions off hand, will try to find them... I am thinking they may get cramped in a 20 long if they really get busy breeding...

    The hex tank is roughly 25" tall, and 22" across the top (25" if you measure corner-to-corner). That may actually be more "tight" for brichardi than the 20 long, right?

    It might be a bit tight, but it depends on how you build up the rockwork I suppose. Brichardi have interesting breeding behaviour - I believe they are like Neolamprologus pulcher "Daffodil" which breed readily and the offspring help care for further batches of young.
