Just added a picture of a young C. arcuatus to my gallery.
I'm really chuffed to get fry from this species. It's been top of my wish list for years. Now all I need is to get them to produce enough for a show team!

Tap water!
pH 6.5 ish
Hardness is almost nothing, only one drop of a test kit for both KH & GH.
The tank is unheated but in a warm room. About 20C at night and 24-25 on a warm afternoon.
Spawned after big water changes.

Cheers Graham, conditions are probably akin to mine. I have actually young S. barbatus and S.prionotus in a unheated part of the fishhouse at sometimes, when I check in the morning, temp. of 63f (18c) and have coloured up nicely.

Had another spawn on Wednesday. Rather more fertile this time and got about a dozen or so hatched out.
Fingers crossed for a breeders certificate!
Also another load of concolor & pygmaeus.
