Default Chumbu spawn (about friggin' time!!!)

After waiting over a year and a half...my chumbu finally had a successful spawn! I pulled 10 little wigglers from a holding female this morning.
They've had quite a few failed spawns in the past but after removing several males from the tank, I guess they must have reached an acceptable ratio for breeding? Hopefully it's not just a fluke! hahaha

Congrats! Nothing beats having heads and tails in your tumbler...I think I still have the same level of excitement as I did many years ago with my first mpimbwe spawn...
