Nice tank set-up. How big are the fries?
Yeah, Fish World Langley has some nice limestone rocks at a cheap price. Especially when you buy lots of them haha :rolleyes:

15 yellow lab fry in the hob breeder box
once they finish absorbing their yolk il keep em in there for a week so i can control how much theyre eating they seem to die if they over-eat during that time
then they'll be in the 10g too. by that time i'll strip the latest holding demasoni and her fry will go in the hob breeder box.

not quite 1:3
11 total i think theres 3 or 4 males but one is extremely dominant over the others and much larger.

was reading alot about demasoni b4 i got these and it sounded as tho 1 dominant male would end up killing his competition but it hasnt happened yet.

no the yellow lab fry probably start 20-30% bigger but the demasoni are a bit older
also the most eggs ive had a demasoni spit so far is 6 whereas my acei's first spawn was 30 increased to 70 after 3 spawns.
we'll see what the demasoni are capable of holding in those little mouths of theirs.

I started with 5 males and 7 females. 3 males are killed by alfa male and the other last guy is hanging in there. Very aggressive males these guys.
