As the subject line states I have had a successful spawning of this Victorian sp.
I was able to acquire a small group, five - 2 males + 3 females, of these small, peaceful cichlids. When I purchased them from the original owner both of us thought that maybe one of the females was holding. After a few days in my tank I was convinced that one of the females was holding eggs. So, the question was should I strip the eggs and tumble them or let the female incubate them? Given the small size of these fish and rather delicate bodies I decided to let the female incubate her eggs. Today the female expelled her fry ... about 15!
Today they were fed ground cichlid pellets and flakes and decapsulated brine shrimp, tomorrow I wil start feeding live brine shrimp. I hope they get through this first week ... that should indicate some success.
