While doing some tank maintenance today the last female spit her eggs. They are just wiggles and a yolk at this point. I was able to siphon them up into a tumbler so I will post some pics as they develop in the next week they should be free swimming with a little egg left over and eating food in 8 or 9 days. They are tiny tiny tiny so good pics will be a challenge....there were 15 I hope they all make it.

The first female that held to term is holding again....this is too soon to be good for her so I will strip and tumble her eggs in five days. I like them to go a month between at the minimum so they can fatten up a bit.they go 22-28 days without eating when they hold.

It is not hard you Need the guts of a sponge filter some screen materiel and some clear tubing....and a little silicone. Basically replace the sponge portion of the filter with clear tube. Put some screen at the bottom and top to keep the babies in....I'll write it up better and post it in the next couple days.
