I separated the catfish from cichlid fry, crazy how fast they grow at this stage.

Cool stuff. Rest assured we are watching with interest, even if are not posting anything. Trivial posting on this forum is against the ToS. But we read and watch :) Thank you so much for sharing. Keep going, please.

Even at such a tiny size they do like something to hide in, I used snail shells from mystery snails, makes for a good photo as well.

Dont get the huge decorative shells you see in craft stores, they are too big, Just get mystery snails and raise up you own shells.

Heres a few pics i took today... The first one is of a juvenile synodontis that i bred a month or two ago. The rest of the pictures are of the most recent batch. I have added some rocks with java fern attached, as well as some anubis that i have removed from mother plant. .....yet they prefer to be up near the lid of the critter cage i have them in. They will be moving into the grow out tank....as soon as i get rid of some ancistrus grow outs

This picture is from the waterchange but i wanted to show this one seperately as the two catfish in this picture are the last batch i have been growing for a month or two. I am really in love with these fish...one of the most rewarding fish i have kept so far.

Here is a few more pictures from today, jus after feeding. You can see where they spend majority of their days lol. I have placed 3 black pvc "structres" beneath my rockwork. They love to hide when the lights are on
