During a water change one of the smaller females spit 22 little babies. they were probably spawned 7 to 10 days ago buy the level of development. they will have to hang about in the tumbler for another week then into a nursery tank.






this is mommy

yolks should be gone in another 4 days or so then they can start on Cyclopeze and baby brine shrimp. I had no idea she was holding, but she had been off her food and was a bit grumpy to the other females.Mommy is about 7 inches....still smaller than I thought they would spawn....so much for the books.

My video equipment is very basic and not really suited to wide angle shots. The vid cam on my iPad is not great in lower light environments
