    Also how do these brine shrimp hatcheries work, are they low maintenance? (yes I have done absolutely zero research before posting this)

    I hope you old lady is doing well!

    And the orangie specs on the spot of cyano is some of the fry... They are incredibly difficult to photograph without a macro lens. But they are there...

    [​IMG]

    It's a small spawn. there are 10 free swimming fry. They have been fed some brine shrimp and their bellies are nice and fat and orange!! Awesome!

    The other female has still been stuck in her pot, so let's see what happens. She should herd them out any day now...

    I wish they would eat the cyano!!! No such luck. Me thinks its because I'm feeding this tank quite heavily, but Ja.

    Anyway, thanks guys!! These fish are so awesome! I've got the other pair waiting to be photographed with babies!! Just waiting for mom to catch a wakeup and bring them buggers out into the open!

    Seems that MTS has caught me again... I may possibly need a grow out tank or 2... Damn.
