    Hopefully they’ll do another run and i’ll remove the barnacle and male early on. Although I can’t see any I still think there’s some there in the plants and wood

    Richy as soon as you know they’ve spawned take the barnacle and the male out and hatch them in a small tank, thats the way iv’e always done it mate.

    thanks Mick, I was going to but didn’t want to scare them off another run as it’s their first. I read that it’s best to move once they hatched with yolk, is this the stage you mean?

    no mate as soon as they’ve spawned ive moved the tube with the male and eggs in it, as long as it holds water they are fine.
    some timrs the male when fanning the eggs dislodges them ive taken them put them in a net fry holder and put a current of water near them the majority have always hatched.

    I didn’t even know this was a real run until I saw the babies so it suprised me. Due to the positioning of the barnacle I couldn’t see inside properly in the hole they used. Done a large water change tonight, cleaned barnacle out in old water and put it back in similar place but turned slightly for my own viewing. They better use it again!! lol

    well done Richy, I have previously, well 1 month ago had a longfin Ancistrus spawning which was out of the blue as hadn’t intentionally conditioned then and have ended up with 52 from first spawn but one of my Albino pairs regularly gives me 80+ fry each time /rolleyes.gif” style=”vertical-align:middle” emoid=”:rolleyes:” border=”0″ alt=”rolleyes.gif” />

    Hi Becky, yes i did try cucumber but they didnt come out. The next day i couldn’t see any so something ate them /sad.gif” style=”vertical-align:middle” emoid=”:(” border=”0″ alt=”sad.gif” />
    They haven’t done another run yet but I have the grow out tank ready for them next time. As soon as i see the male and eggs then they’re out!!
    Your longfin ansitrus look cool

    Yesterday the female barged in and out 2-3 times and the male is back in fanning. I can’t see any eggs but this was just the same as last time. Do you think i should just move them now anyway or try and see the eggs first? I’ve put some food in but he’s wary about coming out so I’m guessing there may be eggs? Should I chance it?

    If there’s no eggs.. what do you have to lose? A couple of days worth of spawning ritual when you disrupt them maybe.. no harm done really.

    got both eggs and Mr in growout tank now as he went back in the barnacle in origional tank but he’s not amused so I’ve turned the lights off new tank for a bit. He’s not in the barnacle but i guess he’ll get back in soon
