Very nice set up! I always want to do something like this buy afraid it's too difficult to maintain, like clearing their poops and locating them.. Pls update us of your experience :)

Your zeb's most be very happy, lots of rocks and hiding places.
Mine just looks really boring compare to yours :)

Wow, nice looking tank you got there! :)

Cool tankmates too. Can you list them?

How do you feed your zebras with those tankmates?

The tank mates are Hyphessobrycon pulchripinnis, as I feed my zebras at night it's no problem at all.
I recently changed the pulchripinnis for Paracheirodon axelrodi though as they bring a little more contrast to the tank.
Here's a new vid of my latest spawn:

O, wow! They have grown nicely! :)

How many adults do you have in the tank?

What are your water perams?

Not sure how many are in the tank, definitely more then 10 adults.
Has been ages since I last measured my water parameters, will do a test one of these days (:

The male has a new clutch of eggs in his cave, it's the 5th one in a row without a break.
Has me a bit worried he might be pushing himself to far here.

Nahhhhh, he should be able to eat once in a while even with eggs so I think he is fine.

Now, I just wish my colony was breeding! :cry:
