Default Wild Caught Trophues Nkonde Fry

Last night I pulled 10 fry from my first holding WC Nkonde. Well, she actually spit most of them in the net on her own. I just moved the wc colony of 30 from their 75g quarantine tank to their new 135g home, three and a half weeks ago. Within an hour of settling in their new home, I had mating action and a female holding, followed by anoher female holding the second day. I think the second female swallowed or spit, but the first female held to full term. I'm truly happy to pull my first batch of fry from this group.

Yes sir, Thanks! I was going to strip her this past weekend but I didnt. Yesterday when I saw her eating large flakes and just as aggressively as the rest of the colony, I figured I needed to strip ASAP. All the fry are about 3/4".
