    Well done,

    I`ve got a pair of Albeano Bns that have spawned. Forgot to water change them for a few weeks, though went to check on them last week, and got between 8 and 12 fry in there. I was planning on breeding them, though was going to condition them for longer once I sorted the snail problem in that tank. I guess they couldn`t wait that long.

    The only other fish in there are some beckford pencil-fish.

    I know you probably know this already but you really should try to do regular water changes Geoff. Well done with the spawn though!

    As I said it was an oversight on my part, but if that oversight resulted in the fry, then maybe the aged water was a contributing factor

    I very much doubt that Geoff. If the tank isn´t a new one the water can already be considered “aged”. I suppose that captive-bred fish such as your albino Ancistrus are more tolerant of high nitrate levels than wild fish, but I must stress that water changes ARE very important. The growth of your fry might be inhibited otherwise, and it wouldn´t be good for the forum if I didn´t say that so please don´t be offended. Good luck with raising them.
