I have a decent size batch of wigglers in the 180. One pair of the silver angels finally picked a good location to lay their eggs and they are doing very well so far. I am not pulling these wigglers I will let it run its course for now.

Oh and another bonus my male ABN has been fanning for about 5 days now. I tried to get the action on video but I could't quite get the angle I needed. It was hilarious to see them do their thing in the piece of driftwood they used though. I made pretty much a cave out of two pieces of driftwood and I would have positioned it differently if I knew it was going to work.

How exciting, Ben! As to the ABN pair - is the female the longfin we saw in the other pic?
Very Happy

Yes it was the longfin female from the picture. They actually did their thing inside of the wood she was laying on.

This is the best pic I could get with the phone. I'll get that camera going one day.

Same batch. They just moved them this evening. Still a decent amount left for how many egg thieves I have in the tank.

Very nice! I love watching the parents tend to them and move them to just the right spot - very cool! cheers
