Agreed! Thank you :)

This will never be my main freshwater forum but I'll share a few pics from time to time. Since Carol likes baby fish, here's some more I've got on the go at the moment; mum in the background.

Another baby fish - I've got quite a lot of these now!
My fish know how to swim the right way up - none of your Discus pretending to be Rays :p

Hehe!  :grin:

I've not tried the galaxies; these little copellas similarly breed freely; I've had 3 spawns at least so far of which 2-4 have survived each time. They lay eggs in the floating plants which are guarded by the male (not like the other copellas that lay eggs out of the water).

I've never got my Brochis to go either, I've got a nice mixed-sex group and they're often playful with each other, but no eggs. Three other species in the same tank (a cichlid, a catfish and a tetra) have successfully bred in the mean time...)

Species that have successfully reproduced for me are as follows:
Dicrossus filamentosus
P. subocellatus 'Moanda'
Biotodoma cupido
Ancistrus 'Rio Paraguay'
Panaqolus sp. L397
Farlowella vittata
Corydoras melini
Moenkhausia sanctaefilomenae
Copella meinkeni

Your doing realy well,specialy with the Ancistrus,we have done SterasomaPanamense and whiptails.
With the Brochis the LFS was just about 3 miles up the road so water should have been similar. Maybe put um in a bag for 40 mins in the dark and then put um in a totaly new tank? We tried temp , making it rain , all bloody sorts .


Most Corys we have bred and raised in a pretty large scale. Dwarf cichlids like Apostogrammas, Rams, Rivulatus Convicts,tho that aint hard , Kribs again easy. Scatter fish have bred in the big display tanks but Ive never deliberatly tried as they were so cheap on import to wholesalers.


Discus if course and Oscars.


On the marine front Damsels .clowns and horses breed freely without any help from me ,raiseing them is another matter, a friend in another forum raised a clutch of Clowns which I felt was outstanding.

Farlowellas are tricky to raise but I've got loads of them now, wouldn't be surprised if I get a third generation this winter. The Dicrossus were fairly easy once I got the pH acidic enough - about 4. Cupids are my favourite at the moment and I have about 25 1" juveniles. They're not such a common fish in the hobby.

Theres an awful lot more species that are available these days,all these little micro danios etc.
Like lots of fish you can keep them in one pH and they breed but the eggs wont hatch.
