Pics of my TR 173 Breeders

Post by TwoTankAmin »

I have a group of 11 TR l173 which I raised from about 1.75 inch (4.4cm). They have been spawning for about 3.5 years (not continuously). There are about 40 in a growout tank ranging from about 2 to 3.5 inches. Pics of the are not great because they were pretty stressed when I pulled their tank apart. But I also managed to get decemt pic of three adult breeders.

This is the alpha male:

This is the Beta male:

This is (I think) a Fm lurking above the caves of the two males above.

And the offspring - stressed

I am always a few days behind schedule lately it seems. I should have done the below days ago...

Here are some pics of the offspring shot the same time as the pic I did post. The fish for a bit more relaxed and are more typical of how most of them should look.
