Sturisomatichthys leightoni breeding

Post by mallemalle »

My leightoni's are really at it now. 1 male and 3 females.
The first female start laying her eggs on saturday night, the second one took over on sunday, and now the third one is laying down her load. The male has a lot of fanning and cleaning to do for the next 7 days 👌

They are dropping eggs every 14th day or so. Haven't had chance to save them all. But I'll try to save them on a regular basis from now.

I have some fry that seems to make it, but not close to the amount of eggs. Will try a different approach on the next batch.
