Hey guys, finally manage to spawn this paros after few weeks of no activities from the fish. Feed alots of artemia and mosquitoes larvae and finally, they laid about 30 eggs, counted 25 fries so far, hope i can manage to raise them to adult :mrgreen:

Here's 2 shots of the fries in the film canister. Not a sharp shot though.. Embarassed

Thanks Stefan and Colin /laugh.gif" style="vertical-align:middle" emoid="Laugh" border="0" alt="laugh.gif" />

Cway, i let the male take care of the eggs until it hatches, and some of the fries free swimming before i removed the pair to the next tank.

Guys, the same pair spawns again! This time i've decided to disturb them a while to get some shots. Here's some blurry one.. :malu: Embarassed

Lotsa eggs, 2nd spawn, barely one week after the 1st spawn!

This is the reason why i fall in love with Parosphromenus genus. Look at the color! Fuhh...

Anyway, i think i've disturbed them too much. Hope they can be a good parents and take care of all these eggs for the 2nd time. :beg:

Thanks guys!
Stefan, the first batch doing fine.. although i cant see all of them properly. Added alot of java moss inside, so... kinda impossible to count them. But most of them seems to be feeding well with big tummy all the time /tongue.gif" style="vertical-align:middle" emoid=":p" border="0" alt="tongue.gif" />

Plaamoo, oh yeah.. that's one of the best christmas present! hehe

Excellent; I hope many will make it to adulthood. Will you be making pics of the fry as they grow?

I agree that fry photos would be great! Do you have any good ones of the adults Harn? Just thinking ahead as I've been building a good collection of pics from this genus for future profiles...

Cake or death?

Matt, am trying hard to get a good photos of the adult but they are just too shy! Give me some time, hopefully i can produce some shots /blush.gif" style="vertical-align:middle" emoid=":blush:" border="0" alt="blush.gif" />

As for fries, will update from time to time, so we can see the progress and grow development. Too bad i dont have any macro lens with me to capture it with more details /blush.gif" style="vertical-align:middle" emoid=":blush:" border="0" alt="blush.gif" />
