Well folks I finally got something to breed apart from the Aeneus. We had a pair of Silver Angels spawn in in a 20 gallon tank and going off their past behaviour we moved them before they got chance to eat all the eggs.

We left the C. Paleatus in the tank intending to move them the day after, HA! We woke the following morning to see all the Angel eggs had vanished but the Corries were going crazy, the three males were chasing the two females all over the place, and before I left for work about 3 hours later we had somewhere in the region of 200 eggs. Everywhere from on the Java Moss the spawning cone that the angels had used, a piece of slate front glass sides and back.

I am hoping most of them will hatch!

Watch this space.

Hi Steve,

Nice work...what temperature are your paleatus at as I have had problems in the past with keeping them at too high a temperature in my old fishhouse.
I now have a cool area in my new fishhouse which I have various Scleromystax species so I am thinking of paleatus or longipinnis again.

Hi Alan,

The temp was at 74f and the ph was at a neutral 7.0. Sorry I cannot tell you what the KH/GH was at the time of spawning but they seem happy enough and the parents were moved to another tank and spawned twice more before taking a break for a week and now they are at it again.

We have had quite a few storm fronts moving through the area so I am thinking that may have had something to do with it as well. The aeneus are still going strong and we are now supplying three stores with them as well as ABN's, Kribs, Silver Angels and Golden Angels.

My local store called me yesterday to let me know what Corries would be available next week and consequently I have a dozen C.Arcuatus on order at 2 for $7:50.

I read somewhere that it is difficult to get the earthworm sticks in the Highlands, if this is the case and you would like some drop me a line and we will figure something out. From what I have learned from others that are more experienced than I, they are quite the thing for Corrie fry once they are past the first food stage.

Hi Steve,

Thanks for the kind offer but I think that we can get earthworm sticks over here now. I haven't tried them but I will definately give them a go.
