Default WC Lufubu Greg LAA and more!

Here are my current three colonies, and their fry. The wild caught Lufubu (1M 7F) are from Greg. A fellow hobbyist here in B-ham received them last February but due to health issues was unable to do water changes. I bought them from him 6-7 weeks ago, they spawned first week in the tank, and again 2 weeks ago. As you'll notice in the fry tank, some are over an inch, and I have 5 more in the tumbler.

The next group is F1 Moliros, 3 inches. These are the 7 fry from the wilds i had from Greg.

After that is the tank raised Pemba colony, a mix of f1, f2, f3 from a breeder in Florida. I let the female spit in the tank, and the fry have all survived. They are a sight! All are fed with spirulina flake and Omega One Kelp pellets.

Nice groups! Pretty cool how the pembas aren't eating their fry. One day I'd love to try letting them spit in the tank the natural way but right now I want all the fry I can get so it's not worth the risk. It's good to see that it can be done with minimal loses, nice job!
