They are so cute! Can we see a pic of the rest of your tank too?

This is what the breeding tanks looks like, nothing fancy, just a lot of plants.

Very nice! I bet the australes are going to flood you with babies in that setup. I hear australe fry are more likely to get eaten than a few other killie fry as they don't always stay near the surface where it is safe. Might try removing newly hatched fry or clumps of plants to another tank. The splendopleure here have pretty much pushed their tank to the max number of fish(no more fry appearing) so I will be removing a few(3 or so) pairs soon(and any extra males). Got a home in line for 1-2 pairs so far.

I will be moving the adults out to another tank before the fry hatch. The breeder told me to leave them in for about 7 to 10 days then remove them. So will try that, Also in the other tank I have a small amount of peat in it to see if they will spawn in it. The Cavauti has had a spawn but no successful hatch yet. I was told that they make take a couple of spawnings to get a good one out of them. So here's hoping.

Well you know you can send me pair out my way, can't seem to find any around here or on aquabid.
