    Thanks everyone. Yes they are green Tefe. As far as water parameters go, I top measuring > 5 years ago. I do 70:30, or 80:20, or 90:10 ( DI:Tap h20), to achieve a microseisms < 80, < 60 and < 40. Water change 3 times /wk, about 30%. Presently the DI tanks are exhausted and microseism is 220, but hardness is 0( so ca++ and mg++ is still being removed and all my fish is ok ( I think), they spawned. Have been thinking of installing a water softener, still trying to get some more info before I decide. BTW, if they survive, I know that when they get to say 1 inch they start dropping like flies, and anyone who live in South Florida wants some, let me know. My only ask is to donate whatever you can afford to this great forum.

    Take care.

    Hi Swami, if you can leave the fry on the parents for about six weeks. In the wild spawns I had, I never had issues at the four week mark. Congrats on the spawn and love how the fry flock to the parents in the second video.
