Re: A. dargei Mbam
Welcome to the fun of killies!
If you do not want "a million dargeis", leaving the fry with the parents
-- in a well-planted tank -- is the best method of raising fry: The weak
fry will be eaten and only the really healthy specimens will survive.
That is how Mother Nature culls her children.
[It does not work with all killies :-) ].
By the way, A. dargei loc. Mbam is a beautiful fish!
