    Pair of Black Veil Angels laid eggs yesterday. Pulled the slate and put into a breeding jar. Now I wait 3-4 days for wigglers.

    Today I have wigglers. I will have to siphon them from the hatching jar and transfer them to a sponge jar then I will wait to get free swimmers and start feeding them Baby Brine Shrimp.

    The Male is doing a good job fanning the eggs.

    Lamprologus callipterus Are spawning. I need to start pulling shells looking for fry. Largest male made a huge spawning nest a few weeks ago for the 2 females. Today was my first day witnessing another male trying to steal the neat and females.

    Silver angels, Apistogramma eunotus, both have a cloud of fry. Cynotilipia Lupinqu female holding. Found 1 L333 fry around 1" while doing a water change today, hoping there is more and they will breed again.

    Coptodon Kottae spawned. Just saw a bunch of wigglers under a rock. Parents are doing an excellent job protecting them. Once free swimming I will siphon half of the fry out.

    triglachromis otostigma pair holding eggs. It’s pretty entertaining watching them take turns in holding the eggs.

    Impressive. Post if you get fry. How do you have your tank setup for them? did you do anything special for them. Like bury caves in the sand type stuff.

    I had my Limnochromis Auritus hold once but they spit the fry. I believe they are both mud spawners

    The tank they’re in has the bottom and the back painted black. I have a cichlid cave with a tiny opening and a terra-cotta pot cut in half. Every week I bury the pot with sand and they dig a tunnel. From what I’ve learned this past week from the pair. Is they like very tiny openings. I believe they spawned in the pot then moved to the cichlid cave. They took all the sand and buried it completely and managed to make the opening even smaller.
