    Yup...but at least I know they are a breeding pair. They were a bit daft and laid them on an anubias leaf :)

    Snow at the farm on my way to Estcourt (Home Affairs, surprisingly they were very quick and I was out within an hour, all because I did my application online)...

    Very pretty sight Clare,

    We passed that cold front on to you from the Cape....

    Home affairs is actually quite jacked up if you follow their systems. I have been in and out of their offices rapidly in recent weeks, so it is not all doom and gloom.

    Kind regards,

    Dirk

    Yes it is, far much better with the process of having biometrics and photo taken electronically. Then you queue to pay for what you need and they call your name to do what you need to do. I applied for a vault copy and unabridged birth certificate plus a new passport. Planning to go over to the UK on an ancestral visa as I can't get work here and my chances in the UK will be better as companies there are "deaf" aware, providing work for disabled people. Plus with the public transport, it's been adapted to help people with disabilities and so on... And most of my friends / family are there now.

    Good for you. I keep on telling people that they need an unabridged birth certificate for themselves and their kids. Our abridged birth certificate is useless because it does not specify the names of your parents. Without that you cannot apply for any citizenship or residence. Authorities always want to know who your parents are so they can establish if you possibly qualify for citizenship of another country.

    Hope your plans work out....

    Kind regards,

    Dirk

    I agree, Dirk. Why do we have two different ones?

    Awesome!

    My lone tetra fry died today at 6mm, I'm really upset because he was my one baby and a surprise at that. Will miss him :(

    I've also got about 20 ancistrus babies, they're about 11mm in length now, and I see a bunch of eggs under one of the giant Anubias leaves. I'm quite surprised that they actually survived this long with the number of fish in the tank, espceially the predatory ones that are capable of swallowing something this size. I guess it helps to have a jungle to hide in, I wish the cory's would breed as well!

    @Sico - Are the eggs stuck to the underside of the anubias? That's normally corydoras that do that.

    What size are your ancistrus parents?

    @Joshua Tree yeah they are, fat little globby balls. Googling Cory eggs they look quite similar. Interesting that they are almost on the highest leaf in the tank, If they are cory's I wonder which one of the 9 species int he tank they will be and whether they will survive... Anyone want a Banjo catfish free of charge?

    Are the eggs white (corydoras) or yellow ( ancistrus)? My bet would be that you have corydoras eggs. What species of corydoras do you have?

    It's hard to tell, they're a kind of clear colour, slightly darker than lighter.
    C. adolfoi, aeneus, julii, sterbai, panda, paleatus, duplicareus (look very similar to adolfoi but have a lot more orange), the "Black Venezuelan" ones, and one other that I can't remember (and hardly ever see either). I have about 4 of each except the paleatus which I only have one of at this stage.
    I think the eggs are Cory eggs, as I have a pair of bronzes that are going absolutely crazy and where one of them was hanging about under some plants earlier today there are now a number of eggs stuck to the glass that appear to be the same as the ones on the anubias.

    Off topic, does anyone have a telephone number for Dorry Pets other than the one on their website which doesn't get answered?
