2 richb (k: 6) since 1982-03-20; who writes, "I acquired my first multis in 1982 and still have an original female from that group. I have had her 30 years as of this year! I spawned them in the mid'80s through the early 1990s but haven't worked with them since. Moved the 5 younger fish into the 8'x24' tub early last year. Noticed fry late last year.

Males can be milked and fry are produced."
