    Sometimes unfortunately life is like that. You probably gave them more of a chance than they would have had in the wild and congrats on that. Sorry for your loss with these!

    Hoping for better luck this time.

    I have to say that I've been a little lax in posting pics. But the reason is that they're little different from the last lot I took, except that they're just a little bit bigger. :cheesy:

    However, I'll get some tomorrow morning when lights on time comes around.

    Still very impressed. I've been following this thread since its inception. I think it's quite the accomplishment when an aquarist can breed fish in captivity.

    I've said it before--you're one of a very few. :)

    Keep it up!

    awesome job man, wish I had the room to try this but only with my skunk shrimp, I hate seeing them hatch a brood every week and just get eaten
