I will John... that's very encouraging.

If it's appropriate, perhaps you can ask that breeder (off the list) to
pass some 'feeder' starter to this newbie... just eager to try any killie.

Is that to say that peat incubation will result in better yield than water
incubation? and how long can you 'peat-incubate' eggs from plant spawners,
say... A. australe? I understand that Nothos require some 6-8 mths
(temperature dependent I think) for proper development of the frys. Does
that also have anything to with something called 'belly sliders' that was
discussed some time ago?

That, Wright, is prevalent in almost any industry or trade... where the
bottom-line is what counts. Sad isn't it.

Cheers and have a great weekend,
