very excited today just had my first galaxy hatchlings they look great
Congrats! If you're able to take pics, that would be great. Know how hard it is to get pics of fish though.
Great! Nick. Congratulations is in order.
Very good to hear that we will have some local bred stock soon!
Wow, that is some great news Nick. Looking forward to seeing what they look like. Now comes the hard part...
thats great news!
congrads take pics take pics
Nice one, Nick.
Been wanting to ask, are the adults wild caught or tank bred?
I am not 100% sure if they are tank bred or wild, I think they are tank bred as they are breeding them in Asia.
I don't like it that they are catching them still in the wild as they are threatened. glad I have bred them, I am going to set up some more tanks specialy to breed them.
I tried to take pics today but the babies are so tiny.
Same here, would prefer not to support the wild caught trade and would be great to have local tank breds.
I just found some CPD fry in my Eheim Classic. Pro's of a see through canister.
I've got a pre-filter sponge on the inlet, but guess some eggs must have made it through.
Remember who told you about them
I got my first batch of CPD months before the second batch from Panorama, but thanks again anyway.
a well atleast i tried
Hope you can rear them succesfully.
Little ones are growing up nicely.
Patience pushingly difficult to photograph with them darting about plants, though.
How's yours doing, Nick?
Nice! I can see you can work with a camera!
when are you selling!
Have you been able to spawn them repeatedly? I spawned mine without any difficulty (using a trio in a small tank lined with fine mesh) first time around but have been unable to repeat the trick. I see the adults spar among the Java moss now but no fry ever appear in the tank.
I passed on the youngsters to a friend and he reports finding fry in the tank with them (they are about 4 months old) among the roots of the duckweed. I'm yet to try this... I would prefer a good size spawn (the first spawn was 9 eggs!) all at once to picking fry on a daily basis.
Don't think I'll be selling. I could however easily be persuaded to swap for more Microrasbora erythromicron, though.
They seem to spawn readily in this tank, without me putting in any effort really. As mentioned a few posts up, these (from first spawn) were happily living in my cannister.
And where am i supossed to get these, cant i give you money to go and buy those fish?
