Agree, this will test how good a mum this female will be.

Default Latest Enants spawn

Decided to strip the holding female last night after 1 week into holding.

& this is what I got.
Its amazing so many eggs can cramped into its small month

Easily 40-50 eggs stripped !


2 tumblers needed to house all the eggs.


Each tumbler housed abt 20+ eggs

No lah, he wears a white robe around the house one, told you he's a mad scientist. Maybe a miniature Tangan's manufacturer.

I only noticed the female holding on Monday, I have no idea when it started holding. So far so good when food is released into the tank it restrain itself from eating, but the males pester her occasionally.

Ok EC, after seeing your post of this picture, I was very tempted to try out the tumblers we've bought.

Went to YM's house just now to get it and head straight home to do this



Take a peek at the mouth
