    Err, Ph7.4 I’ve never done a hardness test, but from the lack of limescale on my kettle i’m guessing pretty soft… I only do the usual ammonia etc tests otherwise…

    Err, I’m starting to get over run! I now have 5 fry! The first and biggest is now getting caught up by the second in size and I’ve noticed 3 more younger fry in the tank!

    I took some photos yesterday i’ll try and upload them.

    Hey Hokum,
    How are your fry progressing?
    I hope you don’t mind if I join your thread instead of starting another sewellia fry thread. I’ve had 3 s. lineolata for a few years now but never any fry. Previously there were 2 schistura savona (always FAT!) in the tank and now there is a very portly sicyopus since the schistura have passed on. I’ve always figured that these predators were cleaning up the fry.Last water change I decided to have a real good check of the bottom of the bucket with flashlight & magnifying glass. Sure enough, lots of tiny little larvae flitting around. These things are TINY! The larges might be 1/16th of an inch, I think that’s about a mil & a half? No wonder I’ve never seen them before. How many have I sent down the drain?? For now they’re living in a plastic container with an air hose, no heat.

    Wow those really are small!

    Our first fry is called lucky as I have a suspicion that the Garra may be thinning the herd… That was until today I now have 7+ fry!

    This is the second largest fry, notice that the pattern is opening up.


    This is one of the 5+ smaller fry.


    This is the female spotted, I thought i’d add one of her so there is a reference.

    Are you sure she’s a sp. spotted? looks like one of my lineolata females.

    I had assumed the females look like the males? I haven’t seen any pictures of female lineolata.

    S. lineolata vary quite a bit from reticulated to spotted. The spots on the sp.spotted are smaller than the spotted variety lineolata and the fish are quite a bit larger.Compare the pics in the knowledge base here. IMO that’s an s. lineolata female. That would also explain your fry. See what others think??

    Hi Hokum,

    your jungsters and the female are definitely S. lineolata.

    For comparison

    S. sp. spotted female

    Interesting, I’ve never seen such a spotted Lineolata. Hence my thought it was a spotty.

    Just an update to say the fry are still going strong. One is almost an inch now.

    My s. lineolata are at it again. Here’s a short clip of siphoning from a water change bucket. Don’t flush those water changes without a close look!
