    Thanks for the input so far guys! Just wondering, why is it that you prefer brichardi to pulcher or vice versa? Just wondering.

    Daffodils break down pretty bad over time actually when they are older they look like a malnourished fish, Just my opinion i think that the regular Brichardi's look better..

    When breeding either of these fish, is it possible to get the fry up to 1-1.5" before removing them from the parents? I am wondering because I would like to sell some. If not, at what size should I remove the fry?

    Both species are supposed to be colonial species. This means that you can have a few generations of them in the same tank without any problems, because they form a colony in which the younger siblings help to protect the newborn fry. In a 55gal, you may not have to remove the fry then. However, IMHO, I think that regular brichardis are a better colonial species than daffodils.

    I have decided on Brichardi, but the tank is only 29 gallons.

    I would say that the bigger ones at 1.5 to 2" would be a good start, just do not remove them all it may offset the colony, wait til you have a good colony going like 3 generations..

    But in a 29gal I think it will be difficult to wait for 3 generations, without having to remove some fry.
