  1. Not sure if fertile or not. Hard to tell of same pairing. Two of the females look near identical and the males are all pretty similar also. Sent from my E6653 using Tapatalk
  2. I would hate to count the number of times they have laid eggs. Only got to fry once. This was the first time the ehgs have been left too long and gone off Sent from my E6653 using Tapatalk
  3. No good. I seperated the males and left the females to it and they wernt fanning too much and didnt pick them up. All got fungus Sent from my E6653 using Tapatalk
  4. Have removed males. They were both starting to show some war wounds. Prefer to not let them damage each other Sent from my E6653 using Tapatalk
  5. I will remove the males in the morning and see how the females behave together Hoping that they end up helping each other to raise the fry Sent from my E6653 using Tapatalk
  6. Dont the eggs need to be tumbled or something like that to replicate the movement of being in the mouth of parents? Sent from my E6653 using Tapatalk
  7. They are being quite well behaved so far, just on edge and the occasional biffo. Sent from my E6653 using Tapatalk

  10. Hello all, I am after some advice in regards to my tapajos breeding. Come home today to not one but two pair of fish having laid eggs. I have 3 females and 4 males (not ideal, i know) in a 6foot tank and two pair have laid eggs on the same piece of wood not 8 inches apart. As you can imagine, it was caos around the area with both pair fighting off/guarding thier eggs against each other and the remaining 3 fish. I have put a divider in the middle of the tank and seperated the other 3 fish from the two pairs with eggs. My issue is that the two pairs are still into each other due to thier eggs being in such close proximity with each other. Should i wait until tomorrow ( to ensure eggs are fertilised) and remove both males of the pairings to the other side of divider to leave just the females and the eggs alone? Idealy i would of taken a pair out and put them and the eggs in another tank, but i dont have another tank. Would leaving just the girls and eggs in one end of tank be my best chance of them successfully hatching and raising the fry? I will be getting another tank in the next week to use as a grow out tank. I am thinking if the fry survive to being free swimmers, i will transfer them then. Im not experienced or keen on trying to move the girls while they are holding in case they swallow the fry ( has happened twice already due to me scaring them trying to net them). Any advice/recommendations greatly appreciated. Pics attached. Sent from my E6653 using Tapatalk
