Smile Lots of fry! (: *pic heavy*

I've got around 50+ fry right now from my orange flash apistos. First batch are about a month old and theres a little over a dosen of them. Second batch are about a week old, and theres around 50. Very exciting and fun to watch the mating behavoirs and mom's dedicated ways to tending the fry! Just wanted to share some photos with everyone. I will have these available for purchase in a few months as they are growing very fast! Such a cool fish(:

So picture time. Lots of pictures. I'm having fun with my new camerae we got on sale at black friday. :P

First here are some pics of the father. He a very handsome guy.











Batch # 2 before free swimming



And free swimming. Pics don't show numbers. They wouldn't stay in one place long enough for me to get a good photo >













look closely and you can see about a third of them behind the coconut shell.





Batch #1 fry. Again, won't stay in one place, tank is planted. So I really don't know how many there is.... But I counted 13 the other day.









Mommy #1

Thanks everyone(: Everything has been going great. The first batch are getting very big fast and look like fish finally instead of a pair of eyes with a tail.

I moved the second batch away from their mom to a little breeder box to hold them for a little bit. But I missed a hole to patch in and they got out. The breeder box was floating in the same tank as batch 1. well turns out the mom is taking care of these fry too! So I don't have to worry bout that!

Lol, Loha. I'd be happy to send you some if your still interested by the time they are adults. I'm not sure what I will do with them all. It's so cool seeing mom take care of fry even if they aren't hers. Amazing little fish.

Alright, so the first batch was getting pretty big, so i seprated them from their mother to their own empty 5 gal. Theres around 17. They are getting pretty big, and look like fish. Numbers dwendled a bit. I put the dad back in with the mom since she was getting a little fat. One day later theres another batch of around 30 eggs!(:

Tell me a little about Kribs, because I honestly do not know. Are they mean? Will they get along in a community tank? Once upon a time I knew the answer to this, and now my head is full of other information, and this stuff slipped out. LOL

Yes, they can be mean. They are pretty tertorial from what I've noticed. A pair can be pretty aggressive. They are also very shy, and adapt to a new tank slowly.
