    Thanks.

    Single fry – 12mm today from the spawning on December 3.

    In a group – 9-10mm from the spawning on December 6 and 8.

    Great job and Fantastic result!

    Now, I’m curious about the fry pattern: did they have stripes at the beginning or became spotted right away? For fry that is only two weeks old this is a very fast pattern development?

    Great shots Olly! And congrats on the fry. I’ll be getting a few of these tomorrow. It would be great to document the development of your fry with pics as they grow.

    Mike, I am very-very sorry for my mistake – mm-sm.Confused It is corrected now. At deep night my head was switched off.Embarassed

    Eggs are about 2-2,5mm with good amount of yolk for quick start. In a group foto fry first day without yolk. After the finishing of yolk the growth becomes slow. Fry become spotted at last days of yolk finishing.Pseudogastromyzon-fangi-eggs.jpgPseudogastromyzon-fangi-egg.jpg

    I think you’ll get the pleasure of observing for them and their fry.

    I have single male and five females of different age/size. One female is too small.

    I hope that at the beginning of the new year I will have time to prepare something like illustrated presentation here on P.fangi spawning and early development of eggs and larvae.

    Look good, congratulations! Erromyzon looks much fatter than the ones I had two years ago. Wetspot, naturally?

    Thanks! The fangi are a bit thin, with some external issues, but not too bad. Erromyzon look good. Shipped overnight and water temp was 18c when they arrived. Are your fangi eating anything that you offer?

    Plaamoo, very beautiful fishes! P.fangi coloration seems to me strange. Another species?

    They refused food for the first 24 hours. However, I just checked the tank and I cannot find any uneaten food, no snails in the tank so I’m sure they ate.

    You got me really worried yesterday night, so first thing in the morning today I carefully rechecked them. I cannot see anything wrong, see nothing like external issues, and the only ones that may be thin are the smallest ones (and it is a maybe, not definite). I have a mix of sizes, the largest is 2.5″+, smallest are barely 1″. But the ones on your photos do not look thin to me either.

    The 2 in the pic are the biggest and in the best shape. This one is bony.

    These are on the tail of the big one.

    The skinny one does not look too bad…maybe normal for juvenile? As for the “eggs”: any chance this is simply ich?

    Doesn’t look like ich to me. They appear translucent, and imbedded in the fin rather than attached to the surface. We’ll see what the fluben does. Also ordered quinine.
