with her eating as well as she is, that fat lady fish of yours has me excited for fry on the way! They get all round like that about a week, up to two weeks before they end up doing the circle dance. (sometimes it's not as noticeable, but she sure looks like she has eggs to me!)

But they also usually don't get it right on the first try - either he doesn't quite understand the process or she eats her eggs. So cautiously, I'm optimistic.

Your male is so pretty when he colours up to eat like that.

Spunky little female OBs :) They're a bit small to sex definitely, yes? Who sexed them for you?

HAHA! That would be amazing !! Even if they don't get it right knowing they are willing to make fry thats where its at !!!! I will add a few flat rocks to the tank but I read they will do it on rocks and sand as long as its open enough...


As for the OB's the man I bought them from sexed them. He showed me something about their anal fin and pulled each on out and inspected it first lol (could have been bullshitting me you know im as green as they come to Africans) but in his defense he took a good bit of time and the males did seem to have a good bit of color and be in the tank next to them.... But if I get another male we can just move him out or let him breed if Rambo wont (hes a "fighter" not a "lover" lol)

Crawling fish and having to rub the convention in our faces , huh ? Nice update Eddie ! :) Love all your little fishes , but I can NOT believe there isnt even a small zoom over to Oz. How dare you ? I understand this was a different update...but no Oz at all ? Thats unheard of ! :pinch:

but yes No Oz is a crime on my part

Yeah. Your little killer hiding in the flower pot is epic ! Big bad boy. He probably does not want to be seen out , given that his face should make it onto the FBI Most Wanted list after what he's been doing !

Got me pretty excited with this one. I just bought my nephews a 46 bowfront for Christmas and we will be stocking it with Africans in the next few weeks (as long as the tank is cycled)

Can't wait

Oh, I absolutely will! I already have an assorted African tank set up at my office. Had it for about a year and a half.
