Dad - George, Gold HMPK

Mum - Cleopatra, Salamander/Gold HMPK EE

21 August 2015

George was put into spawn tank where he started on his nest. Cleopatra was introduced daily for around 10-15minutes. Both fed 3 or 4 times a day with bloodworms or my frzen grated beef mixture.

23 August 2015

Cleopatra released, chasing & flaring but George is very gentle.

Wrapping & eggs at 1pm. :) Cleopatra removed around 5pm.

They were a week old on 1 September. 

Just spent over 2 hours wiping, cleaning, water changing & returning siphoned fry back to spawn tank. Yes, I counted them.

Returned 297 fry & approx 50 were still in tank so fry count is 347! :huh: OMG!

Fry count - 65 

No idea what happened to them. Guessing the bigger ate the smaller siblings.

Long - 0.8cm

Short - 0.4cm

Avg - 0.6cm

Bit on the smaller size as the spawn was so big to begin with but they should catch up now. Feeding 3 x a day & w/c every 2nd day.
