Glad to hear that Queen is really coming out of her shell. Such a pretty thing, glad to know she's feeling more secure and happy in her home with you! Good work!
I just looked into it. Doesn't seem like they have any issue schooling with each other. As for breeding, far as I know the offspring either are glow-fish or not. There is no in-between. What's more you are not really supposed to intentionally breed glow fish or sell the offspring. If they little school does well they would eventually get moved into another tank depending upon when I can get the 50 gal set back up.
I'm still debating that. If I get my 20 gallon long back from my bro I could set that up in my work room, and move the school over if it happens. Then I'd be leaving my stock in the 75 alone. However I really don't trust the Queen to leave the Loaches alone once she is full grown. She will be close to two feet where as my Loaches can top out at 5 inches...maybe 6?
What I really want is to take my 50 gallon, move it upstairs after testing the spot I want to put it by having a bunch of people combine their weight into one area of the floor in the room. If the floor holds that it can hold the 50 gallon. Then I can move my Loaches over first. Then closely watch my three bichirs and how their interactions are as Queen continues to grow. Then if push comes to shove I can relocate one of the bichirs into the 50 gallon should the two senegals get too stressed with their growing tankmate.
As for the eggs, might be a bit before I know if the first round survived to put any into the 5 gallon. I would imagine the ones in the 75 gallon that showed up will fare better.
