A couple of notes about the profile:

Incubation is normally 9-11 days and there is no pelagic stage, the fry hatching with only a small yolk sac attached and dropping to the substrate to forage straight away.

Interestingly, the first time they spawned this was not the case: the fry hatched over three days, all with large yolk sacs... looked like zhoui or diospilus fry ... and the survival rate was not stellar, especially among those that hatched on the first day.
The current spawn hatched over three hours and matches "only a small yolk sac"... and immediately interested in artemia.

Typo in the profile: They can be offered Artemia nauplii, microworm, and suchlike immediately.

Hope Jutta is around:

Can I feed them frozen daphnia? Fry is at 1cm, and they want too much artemia :(

Hi Mike,

sorry, I was a long time not online.

You can feed them anything, you want. They eat everything that fits their mouth :-)

 

Concrats! What takes long is worth it :-D

greets Jutta

Mike, do you have any pics of the adults?

Congrats too, even if you don't want them just now. :p

'Suchlike' dispute has been more-or-less resolved via pm. :)

They are looking great Mike!
