Here are all my fish.

I just rescued this guy today,he's still a little stressed.
Mother Convict (Sparky)

I just put mom&dad together today.They are already defending this cave.They should Spawn in about 8-12 days.The last fry count when sold last month was ruffly 290.
This is my Breeding Males Sister(County)She is very shy.I just sold her fry today.It was her first spawning.The fry count was 90.
GOT FOOD? This is (Fuego),He was a rescue from a neglectful owner.
This is (Whitey).My first fish.He was two and a half inches when I bought him.He is now around 10".(notice the under bite)
I will post pictures of the Convict eggs and Fry when they laid and hatched.I'm expecting around 300.

Thank You!
The tank with mom&dad is my Breeder 10 gal.I put the cave on the front of the tank so i can constantly observe their progress.The sister Convict shares a 10 gal with that sandy-looking pleco,and the Albino Pleco.I had to remove the sandy-looking pleco from the breeder tank.if not he would be shredded.The two Oscars are in a 80 gal.As I type this second, Mom&Dad are lip locking,and moving gravel out of the cave. Won't take long.I'll keep posting their progress.

Well, I have bad news.:cry:

The cave that the Convicts spawned in was to slick for the eggs to stick. So, when mom would deposite some eggs,they would fall to the gravel and the Male was fertilizing nothing. All the eggs where clear and not fertilized. I waited 6 days to see if any at all had been fertilized, not a single one. So, I put in my other cave and they are due to spawn again in a few days. I'll post egg pictures when they arrive!!.
