Default Mpimbwe holding?

Less than a month ago I got some Wild Pims from Greg. 4-5"ers. Passing by the tank after feeding tonight I see one with its mouth all puffed out. Hmmmmmmm. Is that fish munching a pellet, or is it a "she" and is she holding? I was betting a pellet or her mouth was a bit wonky. Only one way to tell.....drop some pellets in. YEP!!!! That "Pellet bump" that we all know and love! She's holding. I don't expect much. She's small, it's their first attempt, and who knows if they're both sexually mature. No matter what, EXCITING!

Congrats, it always nice when that new group starts to spawn. Even if it doesn't take. Its a good sign of things to come.

Well it looks like my girl swallowed or spit. First timers. Who knows? Infertile, or just a first time eater. Either way, it's still a good development for the future
