I'm.... so... excited!! This is the first spawn I've seen occur and it's the first I think the fry have a good chance surviving from! I had Helios spawn before he passed to try to pass on his genes, but I think his poor health affected the extremely tiny spawn I got... :/ I should've known better...

WOOT for Karen's amazingly healthy and vigorous fish!! Now to go debate on getting some of the new females she posted ;)

She's got some nice ones up. There's a multi-girl that looks exactly like what one of my new females has turned into. Luckily I'm up to my gills in fish (pun intended). No more fish until May!

Lol I had emailed her to see when the next few were going to go up on AB. I'm looking for a couple more females and one more male. I'm just overly pleased with the vitality and quality of her fish!

So now they have successfully released some eggs, but they're just sitting on the bottom of the tank :( The female also ate a few as a quick snack. They are continuing to embrace, so I hope the male will get some in the nest!

That's awesome! I really hope they get the hang of it and get some eggs in the nest.
The females Karen listed are awesome... she has a few from her BOS pair *sigh* but I'm too "up to my gills" in fish!

Successful!!!!! I went to check right as the female dropped a TON of eggs. Then the male gathered a ton and popped them in the nest.. this time around the female helped out after coming to! YEY babies! I wish I could get a pic of the nest, but it's under a cup and you can't see the eggs... lol

SO MANY EGGS :D I've been trying to count all the ones that have dropped since I can't see the nest so well... my number is definitely over 100 right now. I doubt all of them were fertilized since she was dropping them while swimming around too lol... but YEY
