    The warm temps in my garage fishroom have spurred a bunch of spawns:
    • Cichlasoma sp, "Zanja Honda"
    • Cichlasoma sp. "La Palma"
    • Amatitlania septemfasciata "Rio San Juan, Costa Rica"
    • Amatitlania kanna "Rio Banano, Costa Rica"
    • Amatitlania sp. "Honduran Red Point" (Danli, Honduras)
    • Amatitlania nigrofasciata "Marble Cons"
    • Amatitlania siquia "Rio Cubayo, Costa Rica"
    • Amatitlania siquia "Rio Animas, Costa Rica"
    • Neetroplus nematopus "Lago Nicaragua"
    Hoping to add a couple more to the list this week :)

    What New World fish are breeding for you?

    Can you try artificially hatching?

    Dicrossus maculatus, but the little b*stards keep eating their eggs.

    Also, repeated spawns (and a good number of grow-outs) from my C. venezuelanus... not cichlids, but still new world :p.

    I've never had much success with pulling eggs. They have always fungused. Maybe next time I'll give it a shot.

    I add methylene blue. it helps keep any fungus from spreading.

    For corydoras eggs, I add an alder cone and a small ramshorn snail, and hatch the eggs in a shallow pan. Sometimes works, but not always.

    I used to use Methylene blue, but found far too messy. Hydrogen peroxide is another option.

    I also use the alder cones. Natural anti-fungicide. Won't work if the male doesn't fertilize the eggs though!

    Matt

    PS Australoheros cf. scitulus "Rio Queguay" were breeding when I arrived home. Don't think anyone else is keeping these guys let alone breeding them. They're in a community so if there are wigglers, I'll pull some and try to raise them...

    I steeped my last batch of Cory eggs in rooibos tea and had no fungus whatsoever.

    I've got Corydoras sp. C123 and schultzei eggs I found on Saturday, but I don't think warmer temperatures had anything to do with it. I've got a Cryptoheros myrnae pair that is digging and chasing the other fish, but I haven't see eggs or wrigglers yet.

    The myrnae are quite secretive. You'll probably just see a cloud of fry :)

    They've put the pit behind some driftwood, so it's entirely possible there are wrigglers already.

    My Aequidens patricki have been spawning about every three weeks for a few months now. I don't pull any fry. The parents take turns guarding for about 1.5 weeks, before the tankmates tire of the reduced space and move in...

    My rainbow cichlids are breeding. Guess I won't be installing a corner mattenfilter in that tank this week!
