    Went away on leave recently and moved my ray to @MariaS while away. Took a Midas pair I had put them in big tank to keep filter bio running. The pair spawned in the tank and wifey convinced me to set them up a tank to try do there thing, as in community tank fry never get to hatch.
    Tank is a 1.8x.6x.6 tank this is what it looks like 06CE8615-FF36-4D60-8397-CAB4658608F3.jpegD13894EF-C034-49F2-A882-3F4DEB8C56D8.jpeg
    Thanks for looking
    I am looking forward to watching spawning behavior from the pair. Don’t think I will raise fry at this point

    @top dog
    Very nice.
    Looks good.

    The problem though, is finding homes for the fry, as there is a limited market for them .

    Not going to raise fry, after 4-5 spawning tank will become self maintaining
    Previous fry eat new babies, parents eat older fry
    Just doing it cause it enjoyable to watch pair interact
