I hope you have a few empty tanks lying around, you must have over a thousand fry by now!

It might be time to convert the bath tub into an indoor pond until you can get out to club auctions again :)).

Fortunately(?), I'm not that good with raising some. I do have (easily) over 200 Dekeyseria picta L052 and Ancistrus sp. Wabenmuster and Ancistrus sp. Rio Ucayali and Panaqolus sp(L397), but I still have only one Rineloricaria eigenmanni, two Ancistrus sp. Rio Paraguay, about 50 Ancistrus sp. Rio Tocantins, and an unknown number of Ancistrus claro.

I need this shelter in place order to end so that I might sell me fish.

Cheers, Eric

Integrating the spawns from here and here and here, and now this week I found another L397 spawn last week (wigglers found three days ago) and overnight on 9/April another Dekeyseria picta (L052) bringing me to 46 spawns (not counting corys) discovered since December 5th. #CoronavirusSexyTime!

\:d/ And when I returned home from work tonight, two more spawns found: Ancistrus claro and Ancistrus sp`Rio_Tocantins` (although it's obvious the Rio Tocantins dad has lost a few eggs). #CoronavirusSexyTime!

Wow, that's awesome. I am always amazed when I walk into my fish room and see new fry. I have shellies in a 100g that are always pumping out fry but it is so cool seeing new life. I have 2 spawns of calico BN of about 100 combined. The only thing I can claim doing is adding caves months ago. If you were to do shipping like others have asked I would be interested. No LOA guarantee needed.

Do you attend the GSAS meetings in Seattle? I spoke there about 16 months ago (Jan 2019). I brought up several species of plecos and corys at the time and they were auctioned off at the club meeting. I don't get up that way often, but I do occasionally. I've got family in the greater Puget Sound area.

Like you, I love seeing babies and eggs. I got a group of juvenile blue-lipped buffalohead cichlids from Lawrence Kent back in November. They are just about minimum spawning size, and I come into work every morning and stare at their tank, hoping to see eggs or fry.

Cheers, Eric

No, I don't. It is something I have considered but haven't made it yet.

"I don't get up that way often, but I do occasionally. I've got family in the greater Puget Sound area." OOh, carry on fish. I like the idea :d

Yes, it's legal (with TSA) to bring bagged aquarium fish in your carry-on luggage (not in checked suitcases). I do it all the time. It is up to the discretion of the TSA agent, and some people (I've heard bad stories) have had to abandon fish at the security check point, but that's never happened to me yet.

I moved from NYC 13yrs ago and had a complete antique 5g aquarium setup that I packed into a styro with the fish in bags. I had to open the box at the ticket counter to prove quality of packing. The glass in the aquarium cracked but the fish survived.

Dude, sorry, that's not my intention. I'm just so pleased with the fish right now that I want to document how long this keeps up. There was nothing magical that happened in December to kick-start all these spawns. They just did. I'll stop reporting with the frequency slows down. In the meantime, I'm getting great information about interspawn intervals and also lots of practice with egg clutches to figure out how best to get them to hatch, and how to raise the fry. ;-)
