It's been 72 hours and the eggs are still there. They are still eggs and have not started to hatch.

Just a side note,
the thermostat crapped out in my house the other day, my Gymnos are in a basement tank, and I checked the water temp in it today. 55'F, and they are acting normally, with not a hint of stress.

They are G rhabdotus, bad news they are not anything close to Frayle Mureto, look like blue neon to me from Treinte y Tres


Picture shows Gymnogeophagus n. sp. "Blue Neon" Valentines

If yo ask me the fish in your pic and the pic I posted are almost dead ringers for each other.  The dark spots/blotches on the sides of Gymnos come and go with age and mood.

Ray, remember the eggs have to hatch and the fry need to be alive before you kill them ;)

Mine don't have the spot on the side typical of Geo's. And valentine is a collection point and Ken Davis suggested a different collection point.

I'm just stoked they bred. And it's been 56 hours and the eggs are still there.

after studying Ray's pic and Jeff's pic I have come to the conclusion that they are not the same









Tha fingerprints don't match

Here's a picture of what your fish look to be:



I think Spencer Jack took the above picture.

Since they are a rhabados type does that mean they are a substrate spawner? So they should move the fry to a pit, most likely the pit they dug a few days before I found the eggs.

48 hours has passed and the eggs are still there. They are darker and I can see the embryo developing. I just hope I don't kill them. I'll post pics when I get home from work.

longer and pointed unpaired fins


Jeff what do you mean by longer and pointed unpaired fins?


The old stand by way to tell male and female cichlids apart.  VERY useful on many of the classically kept South and Central American substraight spawning cichlids as well as many of their medium to larger West African cousins.  When spawn and broodcare roles aren't very seperated/speciallized both parents often look very similiar.  Trying to tell nonspawning males and females apart from color alone will often get you no where.  This will also often work with East African mouthbrooders as well.   

Males often have physically longer anal and dorsal fins (sometimes the tail is longer as well).  The back tips or points of the anal and dorsal also come to a sharp or at least sharper end.  Think very roughly 30-45 degress at the point.

In females the anal and dorsal fin ends are rounded over, closer to a 1/2 of a circle then the meeting of two lines.

Too many fish?  Never.  Not enough tanks?  Always!
