I don´t want to have them in the same tank as the parent for one reason.

They will get food for my altum angels and the eartheaters :wink:

Once i missed to pick up the small frys when they were ready to leave the cawe and half of the youngsters got in the 30 cm´s altums mouth :cry:

Dear all,
We have cleared the photobucket - so previous images are no longer on line. However a full report of the breeding and much more photos are now here: http://www.mchportal.com/fishkeeping-ma ... -l333.html
Enjoy!!!

Very nice post. A lot of good information.

Do you still use a net hatchery or have you switched to the acrylic tank nowadays

URL ... yes ... modern technology for you. Thank god for copy-paste commands.
As for the net breeding trap no, that was the last time we used it. We had a number of them from the past - they were ok for mid and top water fish. We stopped using them years ago; the plec's food was just going straight through the net and some fry got trapped between the net and the plastic frame. On this occasion it came back to life for the reasons indicated in the article - only to make us decide once and for all that it is inconvenient. Acrylic is the way forward, much more versatile and safe for the fish. The only problem with acrylic is that after a few uses or so it goes dull and there is no way you can get good quality photos of eggs or fry. So essentially you need new ones all the time.
George (Polleni) is working on a glass model which we can hang inside tanks - that is the way forward.
