she might be around 6", kind of hard to measure her in the water, they sure look smaller than that in the 6 foot tank

Great shots Jeff Wink

Are the catfish in that tank? If so, are they showing any interest in the spawn?

They won't let the catfish near them, the cats are staying near the other end of the tank unless I put some food in there, but they won't get near the eggs. I'm sure they might sneak a few when the fry start to swim around.

think a few more eggs died, they're not taking out the bad ones and a clump has fungused over. But you can see the makings of some fry inside the good eggs

fry are "hatching", both parents are moving the wrigglers to pile just behind the rock
can't get a decent shot from the refraction of the tank trying to shoot at an angle Evil or Very Mad

they've moved the fry twice, since then, the first move was into a hole between some rocks, then right back to the same spot as before Rolling Eyes The female makes a good thud when she rams the 5/8" glass, the devils will flare up before they attack, these guys just go for the kill, then back to the fry.

I've had bad luck lately just driving fish 30 minutes away to the LFS, I'd be afraid to ship anything Embarassed
