    Congrats! Manuel had the same story here though, only one or two fry collected. Really odd. Kim it could be interesting to know your water parameters etc.

    400 microsiemens/cm., pH 7,8 and 25 degrees celcius

    wohooo… what a happy morning! My female melanzoma blue(which was missing since the first day i added her into the tank) decided to give me some surprises! 6 fry collected so far! yahoo… she’s alive! btw, the fry are much smaller compared to the melanzoma orange.

    Orange female BIG = 1 big fry
    Blue female SMALL = 6 small fry

    IMHO..I think another factor which stimulate breeding is cold temperature. After almost 2 weeks of dropping the temperature to 24 degree celcius, the 2 pairs started to give fry! i hope it will happen again in the coming months..more fry hopefully!

    Hi everyone,

    longtime no speak, hope you’re all doing well!!

    I picked up a pair of the red variety (more orange than red) today which were captive bred in Germany/Switzerland (at least I hope that they’re a pair and the female isn’t an endler). I’m very excited about potential fry, especially as the female is heavily preggers. My water stats are very similar to Kim m’s though my pH is slightly higher at 8.0. Ultimately I plan to add a few more pairs (if the current pair fair okay) and keep them in the pond over summer. Hence my next dilemma that there is no point in keeping yellows in the pond as well if the females will preferentially with the reds.

    I’ll keep you informed on how they get on,

    Bren
