    Cute! Will you raise them Jim?

    I’ve been dumping them in a 10 gal shrimp/fry tank and letting the strong survive. There are 15-20 growing in there now from 1/4-1″. They quit breeding for a few months and lately I’ve been finding 1 or 2 per water change. Yesterday there were 15.

    2 older fry that I’ve moved.

    Nice I’ve managed to get 3 to about 2-3cm’s.

    Btw I’m still not certain the female is Lineolata. Her head is very streamlined and i’ve since been to the LFS and none of the Lineo’s have had this tight spotted pattern.

    Can you grab a photo or two of young and adult female Hokum? Should be interesting to chart their progress if they do turn out to be different…

    I’ve been under the impression that s. lineolata took some time to sexually mature. I just found this little one in a tank with semi-adult fry that are no more than 1 year old. The same ones pictured a few posts above by me. The parents are at most 1 1/4 inches. Surprised me!

    Congratulations with becoming a grandfather!

    These things are sexual maniacs, I’ve seen 3 month old making passes…. not very surprising.

    Here is my latest suspect non-lineolata baby btw:

    This may be really not a lineolata…. besides the pattern it seems to grow at a slower rate.

    Congratulations, plaamoo!

    I have two approaching that size but have yet to see any spawning type behavior. I’ll keep watching them.

    To mikev:

    It will be interesting to see what that grows up to be. At the rate they grow, it may take awhile to find out.

    Finally I get some pics of the S.”lineolata” fry with the strange head shape and markings.
    Never see something like that before!
    The head shape remind me a bit on S.marmorata.

    Interesting – looks like a little Pterygoplichthys! Which Sewellia spp. are in that tank Manuel?

    Yes very strange.
    In the tank are: S.lineolata, S.sp.spotted, S.elongata and S.speciosa.
    Maby it’s just a malformation?
