Well I just went through the fishroom and discovered some nice suprises.

Got 13 fry from my Petrochromis Kasumbe group (OB Halembe)
Got fry from my Red Fin Longola group.
Got some more Petro. Texas gold fry

finally I even got some fry from my Tropheus Kasanga Rainbows.

Today has been a good day!

Leigh.....do you still have the Kasumbe Halembe?

Can you post some pics if you do?

Did you find the females holding or did they spit the young ????
I am a rookie when it comes to petros and have not yet gotten use
to telling if the larger petros are holding. I have only found babies
in the tanks(Longolas ?, Moshi? .....) ... I can tell when the Famula are holding....
but not the larger petros....

Wow, reviving a very old thread. :lol:

I'll have to dig around and see if I have any pics saved of that group. I no longer have them now.

The larger petros have a subtle bulge on their chins when theycarry fry. It does not bulge like you see with Tropheus or Famula. The best way to notice is if they do not eat. if they do not eat, they are probably carrying or sick.
