Default Two Females Holding (First Kigoma Fry)...

Finally. After purchasing 12 wild Kigoma frontosa from Chip at http://www.bluechipaquatics.com/ last year, I finally have some females getting comfortable in their new surroundings. When I was changing the water yesterday I stripped two females and found one with fully developed fry 28 of them to be exact and the other female had a mouthful of 30 or so mostly developed eggs (wigglers?). See pics below. Any recommendations on feeding these little guys. I have them isolated in a 29 gallon hospital tank for now.


Is it necessary to tumble these little guys?


These guys are shy but seem to be healthy.

Congrats on all the fry. I woul tumble them for another day or two, then they should be fine in a tank by themselves. If you leave that many in the tumbler for long periods the fast developers will pick at the slow ones.

Indeed, very nice shot.
Good advice about their growth too.
