    So I just noticed my female GT in a pit in the corner of the tank that wasn't there yesterday. Went over to investigate and there are eggs in there with her! I wasn't expecting this so soon! They are less than a year old!

    Now I have no idea what to do. I don't have another tank to move them into, or to move the JD and red tailed shark. I guess I will just see what happens! Should I still do water changes in this tank? They were due in just a couple of days from now...

    Anyone have any experience in raising fry of these fish?

    Well, since this tank will have to be huge to house these species... I think you can probably skip a few days.

    Biggest issue you have now is figuring out what to do with the fry that survives the JD after the parents stop caring.

    The tank is 120g. It houses the GT pair, 1 JD, 1 Red Tailed Shark, and 6 Bn's. The GT's stay on the right, the JD on the left, and the shark and BN's where ever they please, lol.

    Just talked to my lfs (went for crickets for the frogs) and they said pretty much the same thing. I can sell some of the babies (if they make it) on Kijiji, and a friend of mine will take some. After that, the lfs will make me a deal for some. If they are as prolific as what I am hearing, the JD is welcome to snack all she wants, lol.

    To bad you arent close to me. I would take em all and get myself a breeding pair. I passed on a 8in female today on my lunch. They are sooo pretty!

    Sandz, if you were closer I would take you up on that deal, lol!

    Apparently they laid eggs long before I noticed! The eggs are not eggs today, but wrigglers! I am so excited!

    So far mom and dad are being great parents. They aren't being as aggresive with the other 2 fish as I thought they would. They are even tolerating them on their side. The video I am posting will show this.

    Again, pardon the algae on the glass as I still can't do tank maintenance on their side. You can see the wrigglers, although the video isn't as clear as I would like it. It looks better in full screen.

    Thanks everyone! The eggs are now wrigglers!

    Sands, if I were closer to you I would definitely be willing to work something out, lol.

    I will share some links to some FB photos of them:!/!/!/

    And this a a YouTube link to a video of the wrigglers. It looks better in full screen. Mind the algae as I can't get into their corner to clean:

    I have submitted two responses with links to pics and a video, but it is telling me they won't be posted until a mod can review it. Please be patient!
