Update: The fry are doing fine, about 40? I also bred the second big ear with a red marble hm female, that spawn has about 150? They are also growing like weeds! The plan is to cross breed to the other big ear to prevent a lot of inbreeding problems...
This makes 3 spawns that I have all together, This will be a busy summer for me!
Also I just received my API Master Test kit and it is really an eye opener! All my tanks/tubs have filters so Nitrate is my main test. Just did a 50% in all my brood tanks today.
I'll try to get a vid done of my total setup this weekend.... Most of my current setup is kinda temporary, If I decide to continue with breeding then I have an area where I can build a permenent dedicated fish room. Right now I have a few heated tanks in my finished part of the basement, and my basement half bath now has a space heater keeping it about 84F, and some shelves in there for my male jars and another spawn tub and bbs cultures.
