nice pics.
some questions:

1)How big are the parents?
2)How long after they start brooding that you started "squeezing"?
parents are about 5-6" TL... in Singapore weather, normally the wrigglers will be free swimming on the 4th to 5th day after hatching...

here's the latest pic of the pair... happily feeding after so many days of hardship...

hopefully they will rest till the current batch is of good size before spawning again..

Thanks for the info.

May I suggest that you allow the parents to bring up their next batch of fry themselves. It would be very interesting to witness their brooding/fry-raising process. I had previously seen a photo of an Eartheater releasing fry from its mouth. That picture is really beautiful. Would love to see pictures of a Heros doing this too...



The Panoramic shot of your tank is very nice! That pike looks jealous.
