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.
another bright side.. My red empress female is holding! she opened her mouth and i for sure saw swimming babies ... 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
