the heckelii have settled in and look pretty good. lots more color than yesterday. they need to grow a bit before the start breeding so you got 3-6 months to get yours on fry Eddie.....remember it is not a competition. :whistle:

Nice Tom, I love the thread fins. I read an article that suggested heckelii will only breed in a cave type environment. I don't know if this is true but the author suggested using a capped pvc t connector to provide the proper environment for them.

I figured you had seen that article, and will stay tuned to see if you have a different experience.

Should be an interesting project. I plan to have caves, both rock and pipe. Rocks both flat and craggy. And sandy areas with nearly vertical slate pieces . With my luck they will jst spray eggs everywhere and all will hatch out. There are articles that support each of these types of spawn site. In nature the dig interconnecting tunnels with multiple chambers and maze like layouts so I will also try some random pipe fittings of differing sizes.
