Found some free swimmers yesterday! We were going to try to move the pair to their own tank before they spawned, but apparently they couldn't wait for the fishroom to be finished.

Super cool. What do think are their chances? I got room for a couple of juvies when you sell.

I honestly couldn't tell you what their chances are in the community tank. The pair will be moving to their own tank within a few days and I'm sure they will try again soon. I will definitely be raising the fry from these two! They are F0's. ;D

Sweet, I sure wish you both the best with this endeavor of yours!! It will be nice to order from you. Sis is in Acworth, so a visit to your retail will be requested next trip down.

Your lil mama reminds me of my departed cacatuoide mother, glowing so gold.

I can't figure out who's cuter: the parents or the fry. I just want to pinch mom/dad's little yellow cheeks

Please, please, please tell me you'll be selling them when they're old enough. I'm getting on an apisto kick. Probably since I'm out of room for the larger cichlids

As soon as I can raise fry to a size where I can sell them, that is the plan! I'd love for you to get some of them. These are such cool fish!

BTW... I have a feeling my F0 apisto panduro pair might get in the mood when I move them into their own tank.... which should be TOMORROW NIGHT!!!!!!!!!! ;D

Promise me if I have panduros that grow out, you'll get some. They are the prettiest apistos we have IMO!

How long have you had them??

4 out of 4 species I have had spawned within 2 to 3 weeks after after getting them. It seems apistos are good for that...a change in water conditions and they spawn.
Cockatoo's, Borelli Red face, Borelli Opals and Baenschi Inka 50's. Baetiniata started nesting but unfortunately I lost the female.

I got this pair at the auction about 3 weeks ago, so I guess it did take about 2 weeks for them to do the deed. ;D
