Jess Posted June 4, 2006 Report Share Posted June 4, 2006 I bought a pair of A. cacatuoides on the 25/5/06. I put them in a 2ft tank on their own that has some plants and some wood. I hadn't had a chance to put in a clay pot in the tank as they were still settling in. I was feeding them a few times a day on daphnia and mozzie larvae hoping to condition them up and then try a large WC to induce spawning. 4 days after I got them I noticed the female had dug out a cave and had laid eggs! I was really excited but I knew the chance of the eggs hatching were slim as it was their first batch and I wasn't sure if the water was soft enough for them to be able to hatch. On thursday the eggs were gone, so I thought. she must of moved them elsewhere in the tank. Tonight when I fed the pair I was watching the baby daphnia swim around the tank and I noticed some odd shaped wrigglers, and it was indeed fry. There is 6 fry. Not a bad effort for first timers, I am stoked!! Here is some pics, see if you can spot the fry The tank 1 fry and another.. the male, they don't keep still I wil try to take pics of the parents tonight, well postable pics!!
