Hypoptopoma sp. PERU(1) spawning

Post by eric3333 »

I was able to see two of my Hypotopoma sp. PERU(1)

spawning on the back wall of the aquarium. The young parents laid three rather large eggs about one quarter inch apart on the aquarium wall. The eggs hatched in four to five days and the larva moved from the egg site but stayed on the back wall. The larva did not move much till they went free-swimming after five more days. The attached picture is of a free-swimming fry. Has anyone had success with this Hypoptopoma sp.? Thanks for the info.

Thanks Eric, this one kind of surprised me since it happened so soon after setting the group up in their own tank.

That is really cool, we would certainly use the fry pic for the species profile if you were minded. Do you have a picture of the adults too? That'd be great,

Cheers,

Jools

Not great ones right now but I will work on getting some good pictures of the adults to post and for your use. You are most welcome to use the fry picture too.
