A Local Breeder as the tank was getting dominated by an alpha male and figured that I would rescuse this one alone with a Male that looked more like your photo. BUt once I got them home I noticed this female looked Different. I no longer have the male as he got himself stuck in a Barnacle and died before I dwas able to even notice that he was stuck.

I was kind of thinking this was the case. A Hybrid. Someone told me that it kind of looks like a Chituta?

Latest spawn from this pair was over 65+...

There looks to be about 60-65 in there now and all seem to be thriving.

Nope. Just the mother is in with them now. What I do is wait until she starts coming out of her shell. Then I take the whole shell, which she usually ducts into really quick, and then place her into a tank of the main tanks water and let them come out of the shell on their own. That usually happens over night when they are ready. No fry in the tank one day and then next morning they are scattered throughout the tank.

I have some really nice WC Ocellatus "Isanga" pairs from Greg that doing great! Don't have them in with anything other than some Murago fry at this point. But they are cool. One male was a little thin when I got but he looks great now. Just kept the tank on a regular routine of weekly clean water, low stress and good food and he's back to 100%. They're delicate to from what I understand so he did a nice job Importing them.

I haven't let the Calvus get to that point as I have my Pair in a 6fter with my Ikola and WC Tretacephalus that I also got recently from Greg... which are also doing very well but have yet to spawn. So I haven't put the Calvus in a tank of their own. Might not. I like them in with the Ikola.
