Default Kapampa spawn!!

Yesterday, I noticed one of my most beautiful female's tube drop. I did a 25% water change, which I usually do on sundays anyway and fed them a good amount of frozen mysis. This morning, I witnessed my alpha and my beautiful female spawning! Its cool to watch the female drop the egg one at a time and then put them in her mouth while the alpha is busy fighting off everyone in the tank. I didn't really expect this to happen so soon and it totally caught me off guard. I'm just hoping the eggs are fertilized since my alpha is only 6". I guess we'll find out soon enough. Anyway, I took a quick video (crappy quality) of the spawning action.

That is awesome! We got our Kaps from the same source so I hope that means mine will be next. I have seen tubes drop, but no spawning yet.

Well that was fast, my holding female swallowed her eggs last night. Now she has a nice full belly of what I think were unfertilized eggs. Time to put on some Barry White and candles by the tank again and hope for another spawn!
