    Great documentation Tom. How are the original batch of eggs doing?

    16 have made it to (close to) full development. The first one is hatching as I type 🙂

    Male with two batches of eggs – 5 days old on the left, 10 days old on the right…

    …the latter of which began hatching overnight. ~9mm TL fry –

    Great pics again. 🙂 What are you going to do with them?

    I’m probably just going to let them get on with it… they may or may not make it in the big tank. Given that they’re hybrids I’m not desperate to raise them in numbers, although I guess it’s arguable as to how important that is for non-commercial hobby breeding..

    Third batch of eggs are now hatching. The adult male has been guarding this spot on the glass for exactly a month now, while the three females have taken it in turns to spawn with him.

     

     

    And at least some of the previous batches seem to be surviving –

     

     

    The female Apisto is still in parenting mode deep in a thicket of Ludwigia as well, so presumably still has juvenile sunder her wing although I haven’t seen them directly for weeks.

     

    Plants coming on nicely, will do a FTS tomorrow :)

    Looking great! The Pistia is a nice touch too.

    Cheers chaps!

    Some new goodies this week. A mixed group of 12 Iguanodectes adujai and I. geisleri

    And today one of the baby apistos broke cover for the first time – I hope a few have made it.

    And I’m getting overrun with baby Farlowella! The male has now raised five consecutive/overlapping spawns which he’s guarded for over 2 months without a rest. Thankfully they now seem to be taking a break as he’s lost quite a lot of condition.

    Should keep the algae down, at least. Laugh

    This may be a bit late, but may I ask what spotlights you are using?
