hey all

i bought 5bn off a forum member just over a month ago. they were sitting in my main tank as i didnt hav room to put them in a breeding tank and i was sellin some fish off. i finally sold the fish and moved the bn. there is 1male and 4females in a 2ft tank now. some of the girls had plump bellies but i just thought that they were eating well because they were not overly fat and they were always eating.

they never like any of the caves but a few days ago the male took up a diy cave. then last night i saw a female trying to get the male ot of his cave. the males cave was on the other side of the tank this arvo and i had seen it move a few cm earlier this morning. now there is a nice clutch of eggs in the cave and the male is guarding!!!!!

cant wait a few day til they hatch!!!

today i had a look in the cave with a torch and found the batch of eggs has eyes :lol2: and also a new batch of eggs sitting next to them!! :thumbup:

i think ppl are correct in what they say...once they start breeding they will not stop ;) hopefully it lasts a lot longer and i will hav fry comming out of my ears :lol4:

1st batch of fry arew in the frysaver...they hatched during the night... i counted 49 of them when moving them into the frysaver(DIY version)

congrats fishkid. I think your'e going to wear out your male with 4 females to keep him busy. Watch out with the torch it can make the male kick the eggs out. If you ever want another male let me know.
