Yeah the ladys do the "deed" once and from there they can have 4 lots of fry.

Make sure you keep an eye on them as they eat there fry as they come out.

If you cant watch them all the time your best bet is the hang on the side fry savers you get from lfs.

Thats if you want to save them if not a bit few plants/grass will keep a few safe.

I thought it was up to 6 broods from one mating?

at 25degC I expect about 28 days to birth

Try 8 broods and typicly 28 days , however I have some medusa females here that were set to explode 3 and a half months ago .They were kept in a bare holding tank where fry would have been eaten .The females retained the fry all this time , 2 weeks ago I put them in a tub with elodea and with in 24-48 hrs all 20 females dropped .Go figure ! I bet pregnant women due before the baby bonus wished they could do that !
