    Thanks Pat. Not to sound greedy, but I'm hoping future spawns will get larger.

    I started to leave a post here this afternoon to give you crap about chastising Mauro about splitting and not being able to update his thread when you hadn't posted here in much longer. Glad to hear you had such a good time watching the futile effort of catching all the new free swimmers. I've only had the pleasure of truly seeing that once and it was quite a hoot. Keep up the good work. Scratch that, the fish are doing all the real work...keep up the WCs.

    Yeah, LOTS of WCs coming. As it is, I do 3 -4 100% changes a day on the 20 Gal holding the first batch I separated. They eat like starving little piranhas so they get lots of food, but the water quickly starts getting a little hazy and it bugs me so I change it. This batch seemed to take a little longer to go free swimming too so that's why the delay in updating

    Not looking great for the second batch The male started eating them. I saved some of them, but they are only about 6 days free swimming so I'm not sure how they fair out. They are in a 10 gal right now with a divider, so they are relatively close together and I'll try feeding them and see if they accept. I should have known this was coming because for the last few days the male has been doing a lot of shimmying at the female. Not sure how she'll respond to him right now, but I can't see her being "in the mood" because as he was trying to eat the babies, she was blocking and attacking him.
