So an active day for sure .
I separated the albino congo tetras into a large dip and pour in preparing to move them and the still un matched 2 angels . I cleaned a 40b and plopped the 2 angels in it with the congos floating in the dip in pour for maybe an hour or so.When I dumped the dip and pour with the congos out I saw eggs come pouring out with them ! Could it be ??
You bet ya ! The congos were spawning in the container !The 40b was so clean I was able to find all eggs on bottom and use a turkey baster to re claim them..I also caught the congos again and placed them back in the dip and pour [old HOB filter not small like I use for eggs] with a piece of egg crate to keep them from getting to the eggs if they were still active. Well they were ! About 3 hours later I netted the congos out and removed the egg crate .I think I have about 100 eggs ! I have never breed tetras before so this is great and exciting for me. The eggs are on high tumble with a cover them to block light.Since the tank was all albinos anyways the light are way low for the fishes own health and well being.
If that isn't enough my 4-6 moth old electric blue acara that were supposed to go to Hawaii yesterday decided to spawn also..4 sets of eggs from 3 different sp. fish in 2 days ..Not to bad huh?
On to the pictures !
Eggs and happy new pair [if I get one wiggler] ;

Eggs from yesterday;

Eggs from tetras;

Young new pair with eggs in tray;

And the eggs safely taken;

Not bad for second rain day back in town ..The week end water changes and bloodworms may have had some influence though....

Thanks Mike .
I NEVER expected them so I am super excited . Like going to make a tank[33 long] just for them with an egg crate bottom for easy safe harvest . I read a single female can lay 300+ eggs a week !

I took that tank down to 180TDS.
I honestly measure nothing else !
I just mix my ro[no di so about 16-20 TDS] with my tap to get what ever value I want..
Never breeding tetras or even researching them slightly before today I will just see how these eggs go. I read to keep them dark so I have the eggs covered but other then that know nothing. Not even sure if the eggs need to be tumbling but I can't see just leaving them on the bottom of the dip and pour or tank.Too much bacteria gathers on the bottom of even the cleanest BB tank. So I have the air cranked to keep them moving.

OK both sets of angels eggs have hatched and I have wigglers !
The congo tetra eggs vanished ,they are gone .Maybe tumbled to high or the MB ate them but nothing in D&P at all!

Pair #2 of the dantums seems to be very happy as they laid eggs again today just 5 days after the last batch..
So pair 2 is confirmed and active...
Need to get set up for the congos . I feel like they have challenged me ! Today watching them with the last 2 albino dantums[still not confirmed pair ] I could clearly see two of the females are loaded with eggs !

Formed new pairs over the weekend for this seasons breeding..The fish turn on around this time of the year. Had a new option with the rams so gave it a try and BOOM just like that !

That's a black ram[male] from my breeding with a female electric blue from my breeding...These ought to come out interesting?

Here she is laying eggs ;

And here he is fertilizing them !

Just separated this weekend ,they must like each other !
I am very excited to see what comes from these !
Need to stay up late to steal the eggs as this is happening now !
