    Again, very nice shots, and also some less seen fish! Always like Callos, just have no place to put them. I think I need another tank lol.

    What all do you keep yours with?

    Nope, they have locomtotion so I am not gonna mess with a tumbler. I will wait an extra day or two next time around before striping though.

    Callos spawned last night, got another female holding...



    Now for the Enants to spawn

    I wasn't sure when she spawned, I guessed it to be out 10 to 11 days prior.

    Thanks,

    I striped my 2nd callo female tonight at 10 days and got 17 fry

    They still have some egg sac left - next time I will wait until day 12 to strip.

    They are in a floating breeder basket/net in the 10 gallon nursery tank with the 1st group. All are doing well.
