    Hi,

    Just wanted to share my first A sp. abacaxis fry! About 10-20 tails. Don´t know is that a proper batch size for abacaxis?

    Expect none to survive as there are some Hemigrammus bleheri (going into a bigger tank) in the tank as well as the male and another female.

    Are abacaxis good parents?

    My female was a good mother, but the only other fish in the 20L tank were another female and the male. Most of my spawns ended up with 25 - 30 fry after a month.

    Hi all,

    Just wanted to share my wild baenschi who decided to spawn in quarantine.
    There was another female but she´s gone missing. A casualty perhaps?
