    After having my two HSL's for about three years, I have got fry !!! I have only seen one which is about 1 1/2cm, but am hopeful for more.

    I am a little gutted though, did a huge spring clean of the tank at the weekend, and removed a load of gravel as it was too deep, but I am a bit worried that I have killed a few or sucked them away :;darth

    How cool, have never had babies in my coldwater tanks, and I have had them forever and a day !!!

    Congratulations. That's not an easy feat. Hillstreams are one of the rarer fish to get to breathe.
