Default Never too late.

Those are cool fish, growing fast in your care. You sent your good breeding vibes my way when i think you asked if my ol silver dollars ever laid eggs. 22 years no eggs observed,yet one fry today.http://forum.brooklynaquariumsociety.org/picture.php?albumid=14&pictureid=111

WOW That's so great. Keep looking, find five more. I think you need six, two month old fry, for the breeder awards program. Nice shot.

That's pretty funny, but keep looking anyway. The parents are obviously healthy, who knows, in the wild 20 might be young for silver dollars. Maybe there's hope for my raphaels (they were 5in when I got them in '95)

Raphaels are one cool cat. Thats some commitment when you have the same fish 20 plus years.

Noooo! YOU need more ocellata. Come to the big auction, they'll be waiting for you. I have an open reciprocation ticket, w/your name on it that needs to be closed out (its accruing interest).

Those two in the pic spawn regularly, but success requires a peaceful tank, with nothing to eat the eggs/fry. Most of the eggs were eaten by the cory cats. Atsy, the adults are spoken for, but would you like some young ones? two months old, maybe 1.5 in.

I haven't heard of bettas being gay, but i guess they have to start somewhere.
