put the tumbler in a separate tank and add some meth blue, that way if some of the eggs aren't viable they most likely will not fungus and damage the viable eggs if there are any

Not sure with Fronts, but generally once they hatch and start wiggling fungus goes way down.

I saw yet another moba holdingo Friday 10/8.  She was still holding Wednesday 10/13 so I decided to strip her(take her eggs).  Not all the eggs looked viable so i tossed one, and put the rest in a tumbler.  A couple days later I pulled some fungus eggs, cleaned the tumbler and moved the tumbler to a different tank where it'd pick up less fish waste.  I found out that at least one of the males can fertilize eggs.  Am I out of the woods in terms of fungus issues?



note: This is my first time using a tumbler.

I brought in 60 or 80 when you bought yours.

There were three sizes - yours were the smallest.  I dont recall who bought the remaining ones, but they are in the area.  a nice adult male who is extra in another colony would be a great addition - and would probably pay for himself in a few months of "work"

Your fish are still pretty young.  Remind me - was it last summer you bought them?  They may have size, but i dont think they have maturity yet.


Yeah, I don't think the males know what's happening.  I suppose multiple females laying eggs is a good sign.

Yeah it's pretty early, but the consensus on cyphos.com seems to be that if you pull them after five days you can get more fry.  That female didn't hold either, but I have a third that start holding on Tuesday...I saw that male in the vacinity of what looked like spawing behavior.  We'll see if round three yeilds any fry.

Congrats on the holding!!    I'm wondering........isn't it a little soon to strip her?  What's the reason for stripping so soon?      I hope it works!!!            Steve

Round Two is on.  A different females tube was down on Sunday, fed them krill, holding on Monday.  I am going to try no food until Sunday and then strip her.  We'll see how it goes.
