Hmm. I don't know what happened to the fry then.... Hopefully they are just good at hiding

I suppose I'll start re-conditioning the pair. Mom is already eggy again, so just gotta get dad stuffed and rested. The bottom of the spawning tank is in pretty dire need of a clean, so I'll get a turkey baster and do some of that this afternoon, maybe I'll find some fry.

Cool

You should have removed the male once the fry were free swimming.

I think I know where the fry went...

Reconditioning the pair as of yesterday, going to clean the spawning tank today, and set the re-spawn date for next Monday. This time around I'll be removing the male a little earlier.

Thank you all for all the responses and answers to questions. (:

Rafiki is in the spawning tank with my backup female (sibling as well), since the original female seems to have lost interest. Almost right after releasing her, the two tried to embrace a few times, got frustrated and are now playing a bit of chase while he beefs up the nest. I wish I had photos of the new female, she's almost a mirror image of him, and getting more marbled by the day. :D

Photo of the new female. She has the same spread as her sister, but is showing more rather than less marbling. Starting to get that nice pink along her underside just like Rafiki.

Man, she's making him work for it. She zooms over, checks, and speeds off without a second glance. Poor Raf seems to be getting frustrated with her lack of attention. Lucky, it just started raining outside-- Maybe that'll get em' going.
