L046 A Breed at long last

Post by A1player » Mon May 19, 2014 9:12 pm

Well fellow breeders after 8 years of trying its happened .I found a baby L046 in my tank about 16 days old i would guess & i hope he/she has a few brothers and sisters around that i cant see yet.
Im over the moon :D .
I have had many ups and downs over the 8 years of trying .At one point i lost all my stock due to a faulty heater that cooked the tank ,lost all 8 Zebs.Bought another 14 from differant sellers about 3 years ago ,changed the tank ,lighting and the way i set it all up about a year ago and 4 weeks ago took all the sand out of the tank and here we are ,a baby Zeb ... So to anyone trying to breed them maybe my last few lines will help you out. :D

Sometime patience is the only thing that works. I got many fry for 3.5 years and then it stopped for a couple of years. I just got a spawn again after about 14 months off. They spawn when they are ready and not when we are.

Congrats, may you get many more.
