Thanks, Dan. :-)

The fish are kept at work. I discovered them trapping in the morning, and they were still tapping when I left woek at 7pm today. I'm really hoping to find a male on eggs when I get back to work tomorrow. :YMPRAY: :YMDAYDREAM:

Cheers, Eric

I arrived at work this morning to find the male alone in his cave with no eggs, but the female moved over to another cave being trapped by a different male. But by end of day, that cave was empty also. Hopefully soon they get their groove on. :YMDAYDREAM:

So frustrating, but so much more rewarding when it happens!

A horrible tragedy this morning. On arriving at work today, I discovered that someone (not me, but I won't say who did) doing routine tank cleaning Friday shut off power to two tanks but failed tho turn it back on. The tanks were without aeration or heat for three days. I lost all but one vandragti.

Not sure what I'll do with survivor, but not ready to buy more just yet. =((

Regards,
Eric

The more irreplaceable the fish, the more disaster strikes. Been there but I know it's no comfort. The feelings you have over this will subside over a few days, but, grrrrr!
