Shy male released his fry yesterday! See if you can spot any in the fry net:
I accidentally let him out of the fry net early so there are some fry in the main tank, I managed to nab about 4 of them. There are around 20 in the net I think.
Something very interesting happened as soon as he was finished, he colored up like I've never seen! He was so happy to be eating, he was practically glowing. I snapped several pics on my camera, I'll try to get them uploaded soon.
Still waiting on the other male, I never did get him in a net. He has decided the upside down herb planter is his spot and he doesn't rest anywhere else. Oh well. hopefully I'm around to net the fry when it happens - I caught my shy female munching on a newborn yesterday, which is weird because in the past the females have been good with the fry. They were both really antsy yesterday though. I had to isolate the dominant female because I realized my shy guy wasn't releasing fry very often because the girls kept swimming over and bothering him. As soon as I got her corralled, he spat out all the remaining babies within 5 minutes.
LBF did your male just start holding? That is
a lot of eggs
