Tropheus fry

Post by Rift_Lakes_Rule on Wed Apr 21, 2010 8:54 pm

Got 14 fry from the 2 females that were holding, might be another couple in the main tank that I missed. One female spit in the tank as I was trying to net her, the other spit in the net. The females held 23 days, don't know how much longer they would have held if I hadn't intervened.

Thanks everyone!!!

Yoda, it'll be a while before I have enough ready to sell. I really need atleast one more female with a good mouthful before I'll have enough to sell a good group. If they continue spawning I plan on offering groups of 25 fry which is a good number to start off with Wink

(with my luck I just jinxed myself and they'll never spawn again Sad )
