My only pair of unproven of Kribensis have finally spawned, after they were seperated from my display tank on the 19th November. Just days after getting used to their new environment the Kribs successfully produced their first batch of eggs in a hollowed out coconut shell which resulted in 50+ fry at first count.
The fry have been out with their mother today who is, as expected very protective of her first young.
One of the ancistrus spp. breeding pairs have successfully spawned (not for the first time) in my community tank. Cave, eggs & father have been relocated to a seperate breeding 54G tank measuring 24"x12"x12"(split into 2 sections - 12"x12"x12" each).
