Congrats on the fry Pitgurl and good luck with growing them out. Nothing more rewarding than having your wilds successfully spawn. At least you know they are happy and comfortable in their tank.


I decided to tear apart my rutilans tank again yesterday and pulled out around 10 or so fry of varying sizes. Took me around 40 minutes to get them all out. Then today I look in the parents' tank and see two fry still swimming around in there!

They are like little ninjas I swear. They weren't even that small either so don't know how I missed them.

Gives me 20 rutilans in the grow-out so quite happy with that considering the parents and their adult siblings nearly died (two did) only a couple of months back.

My palangkarensis still have some velvet but I decided to divide their quarantine/hospital tank and separate the two pairs. Both females display vertical barring when they go near the males so who knows if I can get them feeling well enough to spawn.

Thanks, it's a work in progress. It was my first attempt at a planted tank, and I've had some successes and failures with it. I try to keep it pretty natural. I recently added an upside down herb planter I got at Lowe's on clearance, it's the perfect cave for the ocellatas. It has four entrances with awnings :) You can kind of see it in a few of the pictures. They also like the mason jar with the marimo ball in it, and the tiny terra cotta pot stuffed with pellia. Otherwise there are just rocks and plants, mostly low light ones. Lots of java fern, anubias, and mosses and some frogbit. And the remnants of my giant purple dwarf lily; two little baby plants were left behind when I pulled it out. And there are a few unidentified bits that tagged along with shipped plants. I think I might have some form of ludwigia.

The tank is slightly overstocked with the extra female in there, but they're all siblings and they have enough private areas and plant cover that I think they'll do ok in there. If they seem to be getting territorial I'll move one pair out. But they're very relaxed with each other honestly, and the females each prefer one male so it works out well now.
