neither is it mine, watching my aquarium and wondering how the chocolates will look in it, hoping to get a phonecall from the lfs every day. but in reality somewhere i know it'll still last about 3 weeks before i get them.

have your Chocos they spawned yet?


unfortunately no From what I have been told is they need to be older to spawn but we will see. I imagine in a few mts they might try


Soft water, higher temps,(82-84)frequent WC's& some chopped earthworms should condition those 2 to spawn, Ed. Maybe their own tank??

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.

to do all that yes they would need their own tank for sure I am not going to be able to do all that in the 300 gal.. Im picking up a new 55 soon to add to my rack but thats not going to do it for them especially If I get 2 more females and another male .. so for now if they breed they breed is not then thats ok to ...

I might just throw the two adults for 2 mts in a 55 and do WC , earthworms, peat in a whisper filter and see if anything come of it

I can proly sex them 90% at about 4.5 inches

So I looked up some info On the Chocolates I bought ..

I got them at 2-2.5 inches on 5-4-12 so I have owned them almost a year and obviously they were alive for a few mts b4 I got them

Mine are wild and from Peru
