Special thanks to Jonty for allowing me to collect eggs and have some fun Here's the full tank video [Youtube]2UAkjE57NMQ[/Youtube] Now that we're moved into a new place with a year lease, it's time to start playing with fish larvae again. I've been researching the dwarf angelfish for awhile, and I'm seeing researchers and professional hobbyist have success with flame angels and venuesta angels using only cultured copepods. So the possibility of raising the joculator is doable. Photos of the pair taken shortly before spawning. Female is plump with eggs. In anticipation of the spawn, I place a screen filter sock on the drain Just 10 minutes before the lights are out completely, at 9:50pm give or take 5 minutes, they'll spawn. They even spawn in the same area of the tank. [youtube]ert9voAkwrA[/youtube] On Saturday night I collected 50 viable eggs, and 100 viable eggs on Sunday night. Fertilized eggs will float, while infertile eggs will sink, making it easy to sort the good from the bad. I do seem to loose some fertile eggs to fungus, which could be cleaned with a peroxide solution if I need more larvae. The eggs from Saturday night had already hatched by 7pm Sunday. Larvae are born with no mouth, eyes, digestive system... Just a body attached to a yoke sack.
