Hey Guys smile.gif

Thanks for your help, I will give you a idea what ive been trying ,so to paint you a better picture wink.gif

Ive have tried a spirulina/agar paste,cucumber,zuccuini,crushed NLS Grow,blanched lettuce/cabbage,microworms and a seperate tank overgrown with algae !

Atm i may be having some luck with zuccini as they are spawning in 7 ft tank. Ive been hammering my peppermint bristlenose with zuccini to get them to spawn more and the some of the young whiptails are still alive after 2 weeks, but i will know for sure by next weekend.

Ive been told that the sturisoma panamense is the most difficult fry to raise from any of the whiptails !!! I believe it wacko.gif

Cheers
Craig
