I,m actually considering taking the cone away next time ,or shall I just let the parents take care of it ?
Maybe someone with experience can answer to this question.

I also realize that the pair has to "learn" how to take care of the spawn so maybe I should be more patient.

Congratulations again Andries. You've become a member of a very elite club. How old is your pair? I would take the eggs next time if you want fry. Let them try again after you have your fry to raise . That said, my altum made excellent parents eventually. The best I have ever seen. It's incredible to watch them parent. I'm really excited for you. Typical cycle here once they start if you keep pushing them is 3 weeks. Good luck.

Mike

Thanks Mike,

I,m not really sure cause I bought them in march this year but I traced the first owner and he said they should be around 2,5/ 3 years.I am the 3rd owner.

I did a 3/4 water today because it,s low pressure now and bad weather. i,m also going to buy some live white mosquito worms and live tubifex and hope for the best.

hi yes Ed, :D

they spawned twice more, the second time I saw that where going to start, but had to leave to got on a cruise.
They ate everything again.

The last time they spawned was last Wednesday I took the spawn away and placed it in another tank but
the eggs turned all white after a few days.

So now I moved the pair to a 520 liter tank and they are already cleaning the cones again.
So I guess they will spawn again soon.

well it seems like they did it anyway,to my surprise when I looked at my grow out tank this morning I saw 3 fry swimming around happily

It seems like some eggs fell down on the bottom of the tank and hatched while the other eggs all got white.


great to see! even if it,s only 3 :D
