A crappy video of my pepper tetras and their fry. The water is tea coloured so it's difficult to get a decent vid or picture.

Now I seen it - lovely! Do the fry hatch and develop alongside the adults?

Sorry about the late reply!
4 adults - I think 1 female and 3 males. Bought at auction.
Water is naturaly soft here (1 degree hardness for KH & GH). The pH was about 5 as I let it drift down and added almond leaves. (Hence the coloured water)
Spawning medium was Java moss and I used ceramic noodles under that to shelter the eggs and fry.
Fry appeared and were unmolested by the larger fry and adults. I grew on about 50 fry before removing the noodles. No fry after that. I've now sold them all on at auctions.
A nice little tetra this but very, very shy.
One other thing, the adults never grew more than 2cm and the fry show no inclination of exceeding this either. All the references I have give 3cm or even 4cm.
