    Hey, My Muzis finally spawned. About a week ago I noticed fry in the tank and they had already scattered from the spawning shell so I didn't bother with them. Then, the next day, another female had fry. She was guarding her shell and the fry were peaking out of the shell. I decided to extract them and see if I can grow them out. I also sucked up a couple of clusters of fry that happened to survive out in the tank. Altolamp fry can be a pain in the rump. It has been a while since I saved a batch; so, I'll give it a go and try to not get bummed when they have their massive die off. Here's some action shots :) Mom was doing a GREAT job of chasing away the males [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] Hope you like :)

    Thanks guys.

    Week #1 - all is well.

    Week #2 seems to be pretty tough on the numbers from past history. Trying some new things this time around - will report back :)
