Here is the pic.... She tried once before and nothing happened, so when I made the original post... she was exhibiting behavior but I wasn't sure it was going to work.... BUT I guess it did....

Sorry about the pic, but I can't get good fry pictures... I think its me, not the camera, but you can see some of them... I'm glad we waited cuz we were thinking that she might be laying bad eggs... but I guess the first time something happened. We almost bought another female! Whew!

We moved our "Target Fish" this morning, to our newest tank (the 46g), that isn't quite ready... so I hope they make it... we left our Raphael in there, so I hope they don't beat on him too much, he rarely comes out... so I'm keeping my fingers crossed...

Funny though, I usually feed my unwanted fry to my convicts... but what will I do with all these convict fry?

Thank you! They are really quite amazing fish... for aggressive fish, they have great little personalities, and love to show off!

I tried to count them...but, I don't think I was too successful. I took a picture and numbered the ones I could see in the picture, and there were 89 ... So I assume that I have a little more than that...

I'm not sure what I am going to do with them all... ???
