Kille novice - are my fish spawning?
Firstly, thank to everyone who gave me advice on the Aphyosemion
riggenbachi, beinag total killie virgin I found this extreemely helpfull.
These are my first killes are are still doing fine in the 70L tank with
corydoras, a god nugget plec and cardinals.
Anyhow, the fish have been ona diet of grandial worm, white worm, hatched
brine shrimp, frozen blood worm, brine shrimp and black mosquito larvea, and
rae kept i soft acidic water with lots of planting.
Over the past two weeks, my female has become rather rounded (developed
eggs) and the male has darkened in clolour, and his markings a lot more
pronounced, both fish have got a lot more bold.
As I watch, the male and female are diving well into a low clump ( perhaps
6cm) of grassy planting, staying their briefly, exiting, cirling round then
repeating this. Are they spawning? I cant see any eggs and dont want to
I will remove the plat when I can see that they have finished, what is the
best way of incubating / hatching any eggs?
Sorry for the long post, but thanks in advance for any replies and help
