Well I been sidetracked with a sick fish, had some injury to his tail that caused paralysis in his tail. couldnt tell if the other fish were picking on him because he was injured but his tail was missing the last 1/4 inch or so. I thought it could have been from his inability to swim, he was dragging it on the sand and it kinda eroded the tail. he was one of the larger Albino Red Zebras (I think thats what he is, cant say for certain). But if he never regains his tail function, I think he will get picked on.

I did a water analysis and saw I had really high nitrates. did several 50% water changes over the last 10 days to bring the water back to optimal condition and I also put in a screen divider in the tank to isolate the sick fish while he recovers. he eats now and seems content hiding in a rock cave on his small side of the tank most of the day.

low and behold I saw two small fry simming in the rocks today! After feeding, the fish I thought was holding, ate some food, and I thought to myself "guess she wasn't pregnant after all, glad she's eating"
Hours later I saw the small fry. There could be more, if the other fish havent eaten them. Theres lots of nooks and crannies to hide in. I plan on getting a small breeder basket to hang on the side of the tank or inside the tank to let the fish grow to a resonable size. I orginially didnt really want to deal with raising the hatchlings and then having to find a home for them, but if there's only a few, I think I'd enjoy raising them and then reintroducing them into the tank when they are older.
