Very nice list.
At the moment successfully I am breeding Honduran Red Points, Kribensis, and Yellow labs. In the past I have bred JDs, jewels, and mollies. I am now attempting to breed Festae ,Vieja Argentea, Gold Saums, and Ebjd again.

Don't worry I still have the ones you gave me, but my luck has always been bad with guppies. I can keep cichlids no problem but guppies..... It doesn't make sense.

At this moment I have a pair of Angels that get their fry spawns to free swimming. I also have Endler's livebearers breeding. My newest project will be Aspidoras albaters. Also might start up my bristlenose plecos again.

I have bred lots of African species in the past, Malawi and Tanganyikan, as well as angels and M. festivus, guppies and Endlers, but most recently I have had successful spawns of ember tetras and black neons in my community tank. This was not deliberate but certainly welcome! Only one from each spawn survived the hungry angel and bolivian ram, but it was still very cool!

Once mature, I hope my geophagus will spawn for me.

Liz, I am still so impressed with those tetra spawns and with the surviving fry! You had the perfect tank going in the 40.

As for me, I've had successful spawns with surviving fry of:
Corydoras habrosus, one of the pygmy corys
Hara jerdoni, the mini-moth catfish
Jordanella floridae, a kilifish from Florida
Endler's livebearers
Various ordinary guppies and guppy/Endler's crosses *lol*

Also, successful spawns with eggs but no fry of:
Otocinclus hoppei
Otocinclus vittatus
Otocinclus huaorani
Pristella maxillaris, pristella tetra

The courtship activity of other fish sparked the spawning activity of the otos, but as there were many egg-eaters in the tanks, the eggs were eaten. *lol*

All of the above were accidents so I can't take credit for anything.
This time around, I'm taking more trouble with the Endler's.
Very Happy

The kribensis are mine:) I'm going to attempt a breeding pair from my vieja argentea, and eventually ivanacara adoketa, very hard to get here in the us. They are very soft blackwater type fish, so I have to learn to maintain that ecosystem before investing in ordering them. And eventually I want to get into breeding apistogramma

Do assassin snails kill other snails? Do they reproduce a-sexually? I have a pond snail outbreak in my tank...

Assassin snails do a decent job of eating other snails. Dwarf puffers are the best based on my personal experience for eliminating pond snails.

Next issue of AMAZONAS will feature the Festae. Should be interesting.

Anyone have assassin snails for sale?

By the way Donald, I think guppy endler mutts can be kind of awesome looking.
