    Xenotoca" doadrioi , San Marcos. Ive slowly been producing a small group. Last night was the largest drop of 5 fry . No wonder they are almost exinct from the wild. Very small drops. These i wont BAP in the club but trade with others who keep this same species to get new bloodlines added to each others groups.

    Sripped a female cyathopharynx furcifer ruziba that held for 16 days. Have had trouble with these in the past eating the eggs and never holding past 5 days. This time heads and tails are formed still have egg sack but they can swim somewhat. They are in a colbalt tumbler hoping these ones make it.

    My paradise fish spawned last weekend during 90 temps and nightly thunder storms. I noticed the bubble nest broke up two days and it seemed like the female was eating the eggs. This would explain why previous spawns produced nothing. I scooped up the eggs with a cut off 2 liter bottle. I guess there are 200. None fungused and started hatching this morning. These eggs normally float on or near surface. They are a pale amber color. This morning there are are a bunch of amber balls with tails now. I will have to raise these the hard way.

    Well the C. furcifer Ruziba all made it they are now free swimming and egg sacs are almost gone. Time to think about where to put them as they grow.

    Nematobrycon palmeri, free swimming fry from what looks like two different spawns now that the adults are out of the tank.

    Nematobrycon amphiloxus seeing spawning activity, I will move the adults this weekend and wait to see what pops up.

    Let me know if you are going to part with the breeding group. I would be interested in borrowing or buying them.

    Sorry Pat but that is my favorite fish and i will be keeping them. I will have some juvies when they grow out a little and I can tell male from female. It will be a while, I will noot let these go until they are over 2 inches.
