    The tank is usually at 22C (70F?) I had considered that torps needed higher temps and larger thanks than my 36″ I see Eyrie agrees.

    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 had better clean my tank glass then

    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.

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

    taking some pics I noticed this male with beautiful golden “feathers”. Does anybody have adults with the same character?

    My Lineolata have the same golden markings too.

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

    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.

    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.

    Beautiful, now gives us the parameters please

    thank you

    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…

    Thanks for the info plaamoo.
    My Q tank is a 45 L and the filter is a small Eheim internal. It says its good for tanks up to 60 L so I guess that would just be about right. Its just got the one sponge in terms of media but its gonna be stocked with 5 or 6 juvenile tetras at a time so I don’t think its gonna be overloaded.

    My goal is just to stock up my main tank but I want to do it right. I haven’t had any problems with the guys I already have in so there’s no point in risking.

    So, if I don’t use any meds on new fish preemptively than 4 weeks in the Q tank would be safe?

    Is it an Aquaball 60? If so it has two sponges, one in the canister and one in the pump housing.

    Quite a few changes and more good news!

    The first fry is starting to look like the parents now!

    The extra good news is that they must of spawned again! This is another young fry in the tank!
