Hi Willie, congrats, are the L333 the yellow or white strain?

Just found a couple of Pseudomugil luminatus hiding in a mat of guppy grass. Guess I can add those to my spawned list : )

My L-333's are the yellow kind. I'm not a rainbow fan, but Pseudomugil luminatus would be the one I'd keep. Nice going.

Super nice fish guys -

I'm raising fry from 4 quarantine spawns.

Pseudotropheus socolofi - Malawi mbuna.
Petrotilapia sp. chitumba - Malawi mbuna.
Corydoras aeneus - bronze cory.
Melanotaenia praecox - dwarf neon rainbowfish.

And my Neolamprologus multifasciatus - shell dweller - continually spawn so those don't really count.

The praecox are proving to be the most challenging because of the extremely small size. I exhausted my vinegar eels by over harvesting (stupid) and am trying to raise them on powdered food. I need to get a vinegar eel culture to start up new batch.

Need more tanks!

Scott.

Take a picture, Scott. Aeneus fry are the cutest things ever!

Good fishing, Willie

After a few unsuccessful spawns this winter, I have a small group of month old L398 Plecos Panaqolus tankei. I bred a smaller group last winter, but hadn't been successful this year. Sorry for the poor image quality, but don't want to disrupt them in their breeder box too much.

I was thinking that we should start a pleco breeding cooperative in the Twin Cities. Not sure how we'd do it, but there's a lot of us working on these fish these days.

Willie -here's a picture of one of the aeneus fry. They are about 1 month old and maybe 1/2 inch long.

Poor pic with my phone but you get the idea - little mini cory!

Scott.

L-333 Hypancistrus fry are fast growing and cute as all get out.

Found some smaller ones when I changed water this morning, so they're still breeding!
