    Something to think about. But with all of the plants in there, particularly this nice mass of moss I have, it's just chance they might choose a mop.

It's an adult, now. I had no idea any of my minnows had bred in the tank, as I wasn't trying to breed them. Also nice is when I introduce five or six shrimp into the tank and end up with a dozen or more due to breeding. And my snails are always reproducing. Fortunately, I like snails in my tank, and they help keep it clean. These are all freebies that we would otherwise have to pay for if we bought them from an LFS. It also indicates there are good conditions inside of our tanks when breeding takes place.
    I've always read how easy it is for breeding WCMM. I've had my group for about 3 years now (I have the Vietnamese WCMM - Tanichthys micagemmae ) and I've never seen any fry. The other fish in the tank are the dwarf pencilfish but there's plenty of cover in this tank, too. So nice that you've seen at least that one fry. There's hope for more.

    Even with heavy cover, parents and other adults will eat fry if they discover them. This one had grown large enough to pretty much avoid it. The adults would pause to look at it, but never bothered it. It probably helped that this tank is so heavily planted.

    All 3 fry are still there today. This pic shows the mossy area and one of the fry, which is hard to see. There's a slim chance these could be either Bentosi or HY511 fry. They seem to me to have a very slight pink tone, but I could be wrong. Just hoping I get to see them grow up.

    I do see the fry. Is that a red cherry shrimp in the foreground? You have some very nice plants, there. They go well against the black substrate.

    I had thrown a few of my adult cherries in there a couple of years ago to see if they'd survive the Bentosi, diamond tetras, silver tip tetras and at the time they went in, 2 large silver dollars (now gone). None of these guys bothered the adults although I never really saw any shrimplets, as expected. Now that this moss has taken off, I'm seeing a few more cherries too.

    I can see it too. Wonderful news that you still have all 3, Sue!

    I really like your moss. Do you know which variety it is? I like the way it is growing. I think I have a love/hate relationship with mosses... ha.

    Flame moss? It's growing straight up. Cool looking moss for sure.

    Congrats on the babies Sue! 4 Columbian tetras made it to adulthood in two of my tanks. Only tetra babies I ever saw. Some tetra eggs need compete darkness and for the first few days after hatching. If (when) I'm able to get new fish, I want to try a container with a rock for weight and perforated holes on the lid. Throw some moss on top, the fish spawn in the moss, eggs fall through the holes, stay dark in the container and separate from predators. You could place a breeding container in your moss for next time? I'd try breeding my tetras now, but they are all 5/6 years old now, I really don't think they can still spawn? I only have 1 male/1 female red phantom, I'd LOVE to spawn these....
    I will be adding spawning mediums into my main tank when I get some younger nice tetras.

    I really don't know about this moss. The only moss I've known I had in other tanks was Christmas moss and Subwassertang. I do like the way it's growing upward so far and I'll just have to watch it and trim before it gets unruly - it sure doesn't look like Christmas moss. I didn't put this in here on purpose and I think some may have been tangled with some of the java fern pieces I transferred into this tank from another one.
