    So I got newly hatch OB's Electric Blue Peacocks and Just now I stripped one of my Obliquens. Yay :;bananasplit We did it. Have been waiting to get some eggs a long time ago. Few times the eggs went bad cuz of faulty tumbler or the plecos would suck the eggs through the mesh or tip it over. I change my design and after hours of research on the net and checking other ways I manage to get one super tumbler that is has been proven to work. So I got those fish by tumbling the eggs and now finally I have Zebra Obliquen eggs. So hopefully I get to raise some Obliquens soon. Btw the fish looking at the eggs tumbling is the Mom.

    The mom wants her eggs back, be careful sticking your hand in that tank, that mom will have a grudge against you for ever

    Thanks for all your awesome comments. This is like I said before like my 4th Tumbler design. They all worked but as soon as the net on the bottom got a bit of sediment from the water the eggs got fungus or the tumbling action got way down and the plecos sucked them out and basically ate them. So this one is a whole new way for me with double netting on bottom and top and works like a sponge filter with an air pump creating suction at the base. BB and Shawnie as soon as I get some that I can sex they will be going on your guys way. :;thx
