Replied by baldtaxguy on topic New 220 Gallon!!!! ITS MINE!

So my female empress spit and let me tell you it was a sight!! she spit about 30 babies and every fish in the tank was going crazy! i only managed to catch 2 fry :) i feel bad for the others lol... i might try in the future to catch the female.. a couple of my fish got attacked in the process of catching them.. the fish get into this crazy aggressive mode.. but yeah haha.


I use egg crate dividers for breeding my large central americans.  They also work well to use to catch fast fish - just keep moving the divider toward the fish - makes netting more simpler.  I did that Fiday night on a female Geo Steino - she even spit out the 60+ fry but with the divider, I was able to collect her and all the babies without any getting gobbled up.

So last night i came in my room and one of my buds was like dude look at your fish and i look over and 2 of my V's were head to head in the middle of the tank. I knew what was happening but couldnt really do anything. next thing i see the 2 are locked together fighting. I no more then turn my head and look back and 1 of the V's was shaking and floating to the bottom... I figured he just got knocked out or something but he was out. for good. I took him out and the only real damage was at the mouth.. it looked like his jaw was just ripped out sideways... EEKK! well the only good side i can get out of this is that i dont have to sex another male :o... i know thats bad to say but yeah.. i know that kind of stuff just happens! The male that won has no marks on him... this is the first aggression i have seen so yeah! i cleaned up the tank and did some water tests and everything came out spot on :)

another bright side.. My red empress female is holding! she opened her mouth and i for sure saw swimming babies :D... i dont think i stand a chance catching her in the tank so i think i might just see if she can do everything on her own and not strip her.. I would be getting pictures up but my camera broke and im having a new one shipped as we speak so i will try to get some up!

Congrats. I think its around 3-4 years for a syno to reach the age where it will spawn. Its not easy even if that is a fact.


no it is not easy. ive been trying everything and anything to get them to spawn and still nothing. even though they are wild and over 3 years
