I don't know exactly where the temp is at, but I unplugged the heater when I put them in the 30 breeder. 

There isn't a whole lot on the internet on each of the different locations so I was wondering if anyone had any info on this specific species. I an just wondering if they are mouth brooders, delayed MB.

Congrats Ray!

What has your water temp been at? I have not kept this species, and Gymmie's have VERY different parental methods, Paso Pasche, were very aggressive when spawning, vs the Blue Neon Valentines, who did not care a lick. My Livebearers have survived all spawning, by staying the heck away. Watch the Goods...

Congrats Again!

So the Gymnogeophagus 'sp Muerte creek' laid eggs last night on a piece of slate that is attached to a piece of driftwood in the tank.  The eggs are whiteish cream color and are being gaurded by 2 of the gymno's.

ok, which one is the female, the smaller or the larger. the smaller is the one who is always no farther than 1 inch from the eggs and is usually sitting on the slate next to the eggs. the small one is about 1 1/4-1 1/2 inches. the larger who comes and goes but is the only one the smaller one will let near the eggs is 2 1/2 -3 inches. they do not seem to be bothered by the Godea in the tank.

So what should i be looking for, what should they do next if the eggs are fertile.

There are a total of 14 fish in the tank, 10 Gymnos and 4 blue tail godea. they are in a 30 breeder. The largest fish is the spawning fish and there are some Gymno's smaller then the small one who spawned.
