Holy cow, I think i'm gonna be a dad!
I was looking at my Frontosas earlier and noticed one acting a bit strange,
and it looked like it had a bad case of mumps, well I figured the reason
for this is she is holding, and not just eggs, I can see black in her mouth.
so i'm figuring fry? And I never even seen them courting.lol
Here's a few pics what do you guys think?

great news Mike! good luck with the fryWhen I go fishing I just place a sharp rock in the water and sit there waiting for all the dead fish to float to the top... Kingfisher
Brutal honesty will be shown on this screen.
I think my fish is adjusting well to the four gallon, He's laying on his side attempting to go to sleep on the bottom of the gravel.
Tolerance is a great thing to have, so is the ability to shut up.
I can explain it to you, but I can't understand it for you.

She certainly looks like my kids when I walk in on them in the pantry and they try to hide the evidence, LOL.
And I think you're right, they look like fry!!
That's awesome!! (I'm dancing a jig for you Mike,)
You know we'll expect lots and lots of pics to keep us up to date with their development?
Woohoo! Baby fronnies!!!

hey Mike! Looks like she's holding alright.... I've been stripping mine because they swallow them around day 15 or so. If they are black, then she's been holding for awhile (front eggs are pinkish) and has fry. The fry should be fairly large and easy to raise.
CONGRATS ON THE FRONTOSA FRY!!!your friendly neighbourhood arowanaman!
