Water change complete, 0 fry loss. Then i added some extra inforsia and all their little bellies got fat lol, they are starting to learn that a disturbance in the water means food most of the time. They are growing pretty fast, from head to the tip of their transparent tail they are this long |.....|(the dots) mostely see through except for their bellies and eyes but id say they are growing nicely :D

Yayyy babies! I want babies; my boy isn't cooperating though. My girl is plump, full of eggs, and her little white spot is showing. He's been dancing around her jar. The tank is 80*. And as soon as I released them? Nothing. Nothing at all.

:o He doesnt try and look for her or anything? Oldman realized Electra was "touchable" when i released her and chased her down asap, over and over until she submitted to him head down when hed approach, then hed focus on the nest and just check in here and there to make sure she didnt forget he was the man. Does yours have any nest started?
It seemed like to me that once oldman gave the first nip, the whole process of courting began, because she went from exploring to hiding and having to react to him.

He has rows of bubbles all over the place, and some in between the plants. It's like he starts one and leaves it, and then repeats. But other than the flaring and following her in the jar, now that she's free, he's not interested. He's pacing a bit, but sticks pretty much to the left of the tank. She in the meantime goes all over, trys to find him, etc. *Siiigggghhhh* I'll just give them time and hope something happens.

I do love my Jazz. He's absolutely beautiful and has such a sweet personality. Worse case he'll be my "trophy fish" and I'll buy Alma a man who has her sex drive. :P

Took a couple of quick shots tonight, not 100's :)) but here they are today


About to feed them again, it seems the fat get fatter and the thin dont attack the food often enough. I watched one guy with a smaller belly nip at an inforsia and spit it out 3 times. Its all live so instinct should work, but for a few it doesnt seem to as well.

Awwweeee little ones<3 They're so cute! :3

Earlier I was reading a thread posted by what seemed to be a kid who had no knowledge of breeding at ALL and had a spawn of fry...I wish someone had thought to tell him to give the babies egg yolk instead of just letting them die :/
