I didn't spawn them - the reports are in the wels atlas. It may be a side effect of the current and not very sticky eggs more spawns needed to confirm. Also reported, the only successful raising of fry was in near sterile water.

Just an update on my fish.
They are I am sure 4 Females 2 males.
The alpha male is still cleaning an upright lump of bogwood every 25 to 30 days and he seems to have decided the side to clean is the one I can’t see.
I have notice that if I feed during this "Cleaning ritual" he still carry’s on.
I have noticed 2 females are quite fat and to me look like they are full of eggs.
I have decided to just move the two females and one male in to a tank so they are the only fish.
Any one got any tips?
I will do daily water changes using RO and HMA mixed TDS around 170 to 200.
I will do a weekly water change of neat RO with an adjusted TDS of around 100
I am going to feed Blood worm and shrimp for a few days before the low TDS water change.
I have observed they don’t eat Courgette and seem to go crazy for any thing else be it dry food or fresh food.
Temp is 26 to 27?
KH around 4 to 6 and water flow is very fast I have a Eheim 2328 and an Eheim power head running a spray bar, plus an Eheim Aquaball running a venturi.
I am thinking of adding an extra Aquaball?
