Hi Luke,

To be honest, they are still in the holding tank that they were put into when they arrived from Sydney. I put the four tinanti and 4 nasuta into a 4 x 18 x 14 tank to quarantine them.....they never got moved out blush.gif The nasuta are awaiting the 6 x 2 x 2 and the tinanti were going to go into a 3 x 2 x 2...hasn't happened yet tongue.gif

Therefore the tank that they spawned in has a pH of about 8.4, seriously decked out with limestone and crushed coral substrate. Therefore I was very surprised to see them. There are about 40 at a guess wub.gif

Hi Merjo,

Congrats on the tinanti. clap.gif

You are a legend, I have known people here in Melbourne that had the touch that you obviously also have, that is the ability to spawn whatever fish you have in your possession.

By the way tinanti are supposed to be very particular about their water conditions and hard alkaline is just not on. LOL.gif

Next you will be telling us that the nasuta are spawning as well LOL.gif

Well done. thumb.gif

John.
