my kasumbe are breeding like rabbits!i have 4 that are about 2 inch,12 in the tumbler and a fm with a huge mouthful.
the bad side is the alpha has killed 2 males,so im down to7 wcs,but i guess thats how it goes with these guys.i was going to wait and strip at about day 25 or so but the male was really harrassing the female.

Congrats Brian.

I would only recommend what I have said in the past.........seperate these fry so their is only a few per tumbler, or put them in a breeder basket or something to give them more space.

They will eat each other and your going to keep losing the fry. That equals money as I don't know anyone else in the US breeding Kasumbe........ :icon_cheers:

Congrats again though, I'm impressed.

thanks steve,
i'm pretty impressed to! :lol:
i'm going to the petstore tomorrow to get some tubing to make some tumblers.i really wanted to let them hold for almost full term but the male just wouldnt leave the fm alone.i'm goin g to have to strip the other one here shortly because he just wont leave them alone.he makes them stay in the top corner of the tank,like hes keeping them protected or something.

now lets see them texas bulu,i'm prepared to order some tomorrow :thumbsup:

Holly **#*#, sorry to hear that!!! I was going to use delta in a few weeks but maybe I won't now.

the worse customer service and uninformed employees i've ever dealt with.
if it comes down to using them or no one,i'll use no one.

congrats bro!

how is the male aggression towards the females compared to the other males he killed?

why not take the holding female into a holding tank and let her hold them to term in there?
