Just thought I'd share this tank, I set it up today (they where in a storage box so everything is cycled).

These guys are F2 stock from wild fish.

Here is another pic, the babies don't come out in the pics. The mum has her mouth full of food and the male is close behind.

well we have another batch out of the same female (haven't had any out of my smaller girl).

Has anyone got any ideas on how I could get the fry out of the tank?

I want to get them in a larger grow out tank. I have tried to no avail with an airhose (trying to suck them out) and I don't want to disturb the tank too much. They just go into the shells and DO NOT come out, in fact I had to transport the parents in their shells!

Why not transport the fry in the shell?...

I would have to dig out a lot of the shells as they don't all go into one, they scatter. Plus if one is just hiding in between I could squish it. The extra shells in the tank prompt the adults to breed as well. I appreciate your advise but would rather not move all the shells around.

Maybe I will just wait until they get a bit bigger and there are some more batches of fry and then move the parents into a larger tank where new fry could easily live until they are a decent size... sorry thinking out loud...

I will get an updated pic of the tank up tomorrow (lots more shells in there and the sponge filter is nice and buried. Smile

Finally got a pic of the fry (or at least one of them). Very Happy



FTS (they have done some redesigning of the shells)



I think the 2nd female has eggs or babies of her own now Smile
