These little swines have outguessed me here. They're in a stock tank where I've been feeding them up and never expected them to spawn, as the water is around neutral pH and these are supposed to prefer acidic water. When I went to do a water change today I spotted these lol /rolleyes.gif" style="vertical-align:middle" emoid=":rolleyes:" border="0" alt="rolleyes.gif" /> There's a few corys in the tank as well as a large keyhole cichlid and some other stuff so I don't think the fry will survive this time but it'll be interesting to see if they hatch. Now to set up a dedicated tank for them so I can try to raise some fry next time /smile.gif" style="vertical-align:middle" emoid=":)" border="0" alt="smile.gif" />

Thanks mate /smile.gif" style="vertical-align:middle" emoid=":)" border="0" alt="smile.gif" /> I tried for pics of the pair but the light on the tank is quite dim. Coupled with my monkey-like photography skills this doesn't make for a clear image unfortunately.

Well three days in and there's still a few eggs left. Think the rest have been pinched by various shady characters in the tank /rolleyes.gif" style="vertical-align:middle" emoid=":rolleyes:" border="0" alt="rolleyes.gif" /> The ones that are left are in little crevices in the bogwood so there's still a chance of a few fry. While I'd normally keep these in with the adults I'll remove any I spot in this case. Should be in another 3 days or so if the adults can defend them.

On a further happy note, I've been watching my Betta channoides dominant pair spawning for the last half hour or so /smile.gif" style="vertical-align:middle" emoid=":)" border="0" alt="smile.gif" /> Tried to take some pics but the bit of the tank they're in is too dim unfortunately. The male in breeding dress is truly one of the most stunning fish I've ever seen, simply awesome. Fingers crossed he doesn't munch the eggs this time. Don't know what's got all the fish into this mood, must be the hot weather lol.

Seems like there has been something in the Newc water over the last few months, with all the spawning going on!

Have these guys got it on again yet?

Yep got a group of fry free swimming at the moment /smile.gif" style="vertical-align:middle" emoid=":)" border="0" alt="smile.gif" /> The adults are in their own tank now.
