Microsynodontis sp.(1) spawned

Post by bekateen »

Holy cow! I'm sorry I can't give much information, but after deep-cleaning my 29 gallon Microsynodontis sp(1) tank this week, when the water cleared I saw a baby! I got the parents nearly 3 years ago, when @Birger visited the Sacramento Aquarium Society.
Birger Kamprath will speak to Central California in June

I hope I find more. I'm so excited! \:d/ \:d/ \:d/ \:d/

Cheers, Eric

Here's an update and a (slightly) better video of the baby. Today I did another deep cleaning of the tank, but this time I pulled out all of the Microsynodontis sp(1), so that I could get a better look at the baby.

I found only one fry, who is about 1/3 - 1/2 the length of the parents. If Microsynodontis is anything like plecos and corys, I know that once they've spawned the first time, the chances of a second spawn are better. :YMDAYDREAM: X_X

Cheers, Eric

Congratulations.. this is what I want to happen to a tank I’m setting up.
I haven’t decided which syno to keep but I’m very conflicted.
I have considered the micro syno type you have.
They are good size ( tiny) and really affordable.
Do they get their tummies bloated like that normally?
