    Cool Just when i thought it wasnt going to happen!!

    So been trying to breed my CPD's for the past few months with no success. So i stopped as I am selling the house, so just went back to routine due to limited time. Tried separate tanks, no filters, same water that they were happily living in etc etc.
    They would jump out of the breeding tank. So I changed from sponge filter in the main tank to simply putting air into tank for water movement is all the changes I did.

    So today, just about to do water change in their main tank, and I noticed something moving about 1cm long. Took a closer look and baby fish are everywhere. I think there is about 30 fry
    from about 0.5cm -> 1cm.

    Congrats! Perhaps the stability of conditions helped them make up their minds....

    i just have a moss mass in one corner, some needle java fern , and 2 toned substrate..... had a look last night and looks like they have been at it again and have a new batch coming through. Might have to move a group to a new tank.
