jsvalenti created the topic: Salvini Eggs!

I did a water change late last night instead of today because! I thought she was going to pop soon! This is Sal and Vinnie's second batch of eggs. The first batch went unfertilized because the green terror Cyclops kept the tank divided and Vinnie could not get to Sal. I took Cyclops out for about a month so Sal and Vinnie could pair up, And they sure did! They have been inseparable ever since, and have made a heavily guarded, mighty fortress on one side of the tank. Now all of the other fish are crammed in 1/3 of the tank.


Here is everyone on one side of the tank, hiding from Sal and Vinnie




Can't wait for fry! I will keep you all posted!

The parental brood care will become even more defensive once the fry become free swimming; be prepared to move the other occupants to another tank, or put a divider in. Salvinis can become hyper aggressive during fry rearing, & a 90GL tank(I'm assuming that's what all these fish are in) will not leave a lot of room for them to hide.

THOSE WHO REFUSE KNOWLEDGE ARE DOOMED TO FAIL.

WATER CHANGES ARE THE LIFEBLOOD OF THIS HOBBY. IF YOU DON'T BELIEVE SO OR SIMPLY DON'T FEEL LIKE DOING THEM, RE-HOME YOUR FISH, SELL YOUR AQUARIUM & FIND ANOTHER HOBBY, AS YOU WILL FAIL UTTERLY, COMPLETELY, & MISERABLY.

They are in a 150 gallon, and I am ready to put a divider in just in case things get out of hand. Everyone is pretty much staying away from them.

That's good, because if any of the fish were to wander into their territory, the fish could get severely injured if not dead fish.

I didn't see the 150GL in your profile, so I just went w/ the biggest tank you had listed.
