    Keep them growing and see if any will spawn. I'm bad at selling adults so they are stuck with me

    Another weekend update... Feeling good after the water change. I've cut way back on feeding beef heart ever since I treated another tank for with Levamosile and millions of copepods emerged from the filter and onto the sides of the tank, lol... But, it's still one of their favorite foods!!!

    This is X-Man. They faded a bit from the phone to the email to the forum, but his bars are broken enough to form a perfect X on one side. He's the largest of them all and approaching 5"...

    Good grief... that's a round, stocky looking group!

    If you are trying to feed less beefheart, what are you currently substituting? Or adding more of?

    Thanks!!! Their main diet these days is Tetra Colorbits, Al's FDBW's, flakes and BH about every other day... They attack everything, but even more so, the BH!!! I will have to say though, my current BH mix is very veggie and shrimp heavy, so maybe I shouldn't back off so much...

    Thanks Sid, Danny and Pat! I'll soon re-position the lights to show to better coloring, but they really hate when I do that. They've only recently calmed down and quit crashing into the sides...

    Where's breakfast?

    challenge 104.jpg

    They all are eating great and seem very healthy. Still awaiting their new home as soon as tape, mud, paint and trim are installed in the discus room. It's slow going since I'm working around already established tanks.

    These guys can't wait for their new tank as well. They spawn about every week in a hard water community tank. As soon as the room is done, I'm firing up the RO!!

    Here's a few more of the hungry bunch..

    challenge 105.jpg
    challenge 106.jpg
    challenge 107.jpg

    With weekly photo's, it's hard to tell if they are still growing steady. I'll do some measurements when I move them into the new room...
