Even with all these C-numbers about it takes a lot to outshine a nice C.sterbai smile.gif well done and get them spawning biggrin.gif

Hi Allan,
These are too young, they were born on march 07.
This year I'll try the C. atropersonatus, I'll probably need help, I've only reproduced C. aeneus, those spawned by themselves.
All the others are too young, I think. Maybe next year will be a good year for C.panda, C.trilineatus and/or C.sterbai.
I don't know about C. paleatus, I think they are older but don't show any signs of mating yet. Do I need to make an effort on them?

You will maybe need to keep the temperature down a little to get the paleatus to spawn. A good article on breeding them is in the articles section by Adrian: aka medaka. http://www.scotcat.c...s/article91.htm

Thanks, I remember that, have to reread it.

This fall I'm going to set up 4 small tanks for spawning and raising cories, this way I can alter water parameters without fearing a breakout of some disease in the poecilidae that share the same tanks now.
