    Alcolapia Ndalanalani. I saw a fry today, unfortunately it was being chased by a adult. Not sure how many fry are in there.

    I have albino African clawed frog (Xenopus laevis) tadpoles. I should have some wild type shortly. The male has latched on to the wild type female.

    Tropheus duboisi mboko. Totally missed the spawn but saw a fry swimming around today. Lots of rock work in the tank so not surprised I didn't see a holding female

    Thoracochromis brauschi stripped the female today of free swimming fry. They are so tiny

    This past Sunday one of my Angel pairs laid eggs on a piece of slate. I pulled the slate and put it into a gallon jar. Today I started getting wigglers. Tomorrow I will siphon the wigglers out of the gallon jar and put them in a 2-1/2 gallon tank and hope they become free swimmers.

    Just moved about a dozen telmatochromis temporalis 'shell' fry to a breeder box. I haven’t had very good luck with raising shell dweller fry. So I don’t have high hopes for these.

    Had another holding female but she spit before I could strip her. Hoping the fry survive.

    Came home from work today to find a bunch of free swimmers. These GBR free swimmers are really tiny.

    I bought newts last month and Triturus carnifex (Italian Crested Newt) are spawning. The male colored up and is growing a crest. The mating dance takes days. The only problem half of the eggs are always bad. It is a defect found in the whole genus.

    The Hemichromis frempongi who have been giving me a hard time finally have a huge cloud of fry. They were constantly killing each other even as I separated out the aggressors into other tanks, until I was down to four of the original ten. Then they looked unhappy when there weren't any more conspecifics to kill, lost their breeding colors, and didn't do anything. One pair eventually got it together and laid eggs, on a leaf, even though every website says they are substrate spawners, which they guarded until they disappeared. I looked everywhere in the tank, holding a flashlight while standing on the top step of a step ladder, just like I warn against in safety training at work, and saw no sign of wigglers for days. The parents didn't seem to be protecting anything. I thought we were out of luck. But last night a giant swarm of fry appeared, so I might be able to BAP these and move on to fish that stress me out significantly less.

    Also saw a female Haplochromis chromogynos and three Cyprichromis leptosoma Mpulungu holding.
