    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.. 😳

    *pss Stefan, no hard feeling ya.. copying your title XD

    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: 😳

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

    The female is angry, cos i’m disturbing them making loves! :siul:

    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

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

    Yeah, i certainly hope so they can survive to adulthood.
    And yeah, i will try my best to take photos of them, perhaps at weekly or monthly intervals..

    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…
