Cheers,

Jools
I was hesitant to include them, but did because if the fish are growing, they may have been moved to a bigger tank.

My guess is that in most cases they won't have been moved so I'm fine omitting that.

Cheers, Eric

Re: Is it worth adding an extra category to the "Further spawns" in BLOGs?

Let me think about this. Some data, such days to hatching, max length at various ages, etc., will be tied together based on feeding, crowding and temperature parameters with each each spawn. Those don't intrinsically represent reproducible data but might be left as a single number such as (what is t...

Is it worth adding an extra category to the "Further spawns" in BLOGs?

Hi Jools, As I record data for repeat spawns, one thing that changes (usually growing or stabilizing at a higher number after initial spawns) is the egg count. Would it be worth or practical to add egg count/clutch size to the Further spawns category? I've prepared a graphic for what it might look l...

About 1/4 of the eggs and fry washed out from multiple rinses through the terra cotta pot. Reflecting back on the last spawn being only 130 or so eggs...

Re: Perpetually soft water... a blessing or a curse?

My L397 breed year round, but they are definitely seasonal in terms of the intensity of breeding. I get more spawns in mid to late summer than I do from October - March.

I was sick last week and mostly neglected my fish. This morning I discovered hatched Amblydoras nauticus loose in the parents' tank. It will be difficult to collect them now that they are free swimming. Given today's date, I'd estimate the spawn was around 29 March.
