Thanks Matt. I was lucky enough to know someone in Montreal whose friend was successful in breeding a wild caught pair. He had around 30 and was offering a very good price for the unsexed juveniles so I couldn't pass up the opportunity to get some. I got 8 because I wanted to make sure that I had enough that the chances of getting both sexes was good as I am hoping to try breeding them.

So immediately after asking that question I see my first two boys in the group getting the spot on their dorsal fin. They are 5 months old tomorrow and have grown 1/2 an inch since I got them two weeks ago.

My channoides pair is driving me nuts. First the female had breeding bars and wanted to mate but the male wasn't interested. Now the male is so so red, like never before. And the female keeps ignoring him. For god's sake, they've mated before - just before I bought them, the male spat out the eggs on the first night with me, probably due to the stress of moving. Doing it again surely can't be that difficult! Perhaps I need to move the girl to a breeding net for a couple of nights :/

I understand the frustration. My albis have been doing something similar and I have been contemplating doing that to get things going again. I think it may be a good idea to separate them for a bit and see if absence makes the...heart... grow fonder. I know I'm going to give it a try.
