    For those that remember or Know Polkadot.... She arrived in SA as a tiny baby who almost didnt make it about 3 years ago

    Little Madam about two months after she arrived and had pulled through the sleepless nights she gave us

    And this is her now..

    And finally.. after a long, long wait...

    Watch the bumps carefully where the circle is and the circle at end of the 'bone" shape is on the bumps..
    Here is very visible from about half way onwards

    From my calculations.. give ot take.. probably another month to go

    Just praying all goes well

    Awesome @MariaS. I have to ask the same question as Ferdie. Which room are you clearing for the new tank?

    Thanks Ferdie... Pup tan is set up and running from the last litter.
    Didnt take it down, just keep a few fish in it to keep it ready all the time
    My baby aro is growing out there but she is no threat to the pups

    i might upgrade the pup tank at later stage for the aro but it will then be the pup tank as well


    Thanks @pierreschoonraad ..

    Hahha .. Im not sure!!
    I might have to join you guys with a fish room.!!
