Lepidolamprologus boulengeri spawned!

Nah. I tried, but because of the lack of skill and their setup none of the pics turned out. Parents are super skittish and the fry are in a home made fry keeper so decent pics are difficult.

Congrats I have spawned this interesting little shellie a couple of times.  They are quite prolific once they get going.  Once again congrats.

This is the second spawn for the group. Little back story.

Problem:
First spawn happened in a lone shell I had in the tank. When I finally noticed the first spawn, the fry had just broken out of the eggs. Everytime the female would dart into the shell she would inadvertently flush the fry out of the shell into the main tank area. Tank bottom is covered with crushed granite and the fry (being so small) were able to disappear into the substrate.

Solution:
I ended up using a small cave with an opening that was perfect size for both the male and female to enter and spawn. I put the cave in on May 13. On the 22nd I noticed the spawn and was able to pull the cave and place it in one of my FryKeepers. I currently have 20 or so TINY boulengeri fry feasting on decap brineshrimpe eggs.

BAP here I come!
