I never thought I would like them as much as I did but I always say hello to the male at least a couple of times a day. He seems to enjoy having some human interaction. Either that or he is distracting me from his bubblenest so I don't destroy it like I usually do.

I think they spawned today while there were still fry in the nest as when I did a small water change a few fry with yolk sacs came bobbing out. I really need to get into hatching BBS daily for the fry in there as I have been really slack.

Here is my male being grumpy because the brownorum female in the tank next to his keeps aggravating him. You can sort of make out the blurry brown fry in the nest. If you look real close and squint.

Thanks. He is pretty low maintenance. I just feed him once or twice a day, give him a daily flare with the mirror and do a 20% water change every 3-4 days and he seems content.

Hmm my brownorum pair are chasing each other around fully coloured up and the female was showing some barring. I so hope they spawn. This species seems to be one of the hardest in this complex to get a successful spawn from and I sold my last pair because I could never get them to spawn.

So wat are you planning to do with your 40? make it a planted community?
Haha, good question! When I bought it I had no plans beyond my immediate need to house the pugs for a couple of months. I will be making it an NPT but as far as what it will be after the pugs are moved, I'm not totally sure yet. I might give channoides a try. I could keep a pretty big community of them in a 40. Or maybe I will reserve the tank as a fry grow-out only. Some of my ocellata juveniles are getting big enough that I might have to split them again. They are doing very well in the blackwater/leaf litter environment I made for them.

I'll contribute, since I'm bored at work.

It's not new fish, Setsuna should recognize them, but I got video of the imbellis crew hunting scuds yesterday.

My imbellis spawn is looking awesome, about 20 fat little fries staring at me right now, wanting to know when their next meal is.

Congrats on the imbellis spawn! I am lazy with my stiktos and I think I have like one fat fry in there from the dozen or so spawns they have done.

I have had lots of spawning happening here. The one I was most excited about was when my pair of brownorum gave me some fry. I really struggled with this species (seems I am not the only one) and was so relieved when after a year and the sale of my previous pair and purchase of another, I got a spawn.

It also helps that they are incredibly stunning fish.
