Round 2

I have two demasoni females holding. Their throats are so HUGE and when I look in their mouths I see eyes! So I am going to try stripping them today. Wish me luck. Last time I wasn't very successful with them. They're so little it's hard to keep hold of them. Maybe I will have baby fishy pics later. :D

It's super cool though. Like that guppy video but stranger. LOL

Speaking of guppy sex, you should have heard the comments my husband made when I told him how mouthbrooding cichlids do it. :rofl

I know nothing about this, but good luck. I'd like to google "stripping" to figure out what that is, but I'm afraid of what I'll find. ;)

Shawn :rofl

It means holding the fish's mouth open and getting the babies out, kind of like you would do for a goldfish that had gravel stuck in their mouth, only instead of gravel it's 20-30 babies. :lol

What the heck are you doing, woman? Why are all your fish spawning? Are you slipping them fertility pills? :rofl

Yes, but there's the chance they will get swallowed before then or get eaten once they are spit. Plus the mom doesn't eat the whole time, and she can get really weak and die, so it's healthier for her to get them out earlier so she can start eating again and recover.

This morning I saw one of the babies swimming in the tank! Mom must have either spit them out and tried to gather them and missed one, or maybe he escaped since she can't keep her mouth shut anymore. Anyway, he is so tiny and cute, but he keeps hanging out by the female BN. LOL No, baby, that is not your mommy!

Still haven't tried stripping them, though I really should.
