Default New female holding

One of the new females I got from Greg earlier in the year is holding and has just passed the 3rd morning test. This female is one of the best looking Zaire females I have ever seen and I have been waiting for her to spawn. Fingers crossed!

Zaires can be real boogers when it comes to swallowing eggs. I've got females that hold and give me fry consistently and I have females that consistently swallow. In the same tank! That is beyond my pay grade to figure out.

RULE #1: with Zaires is to enjoy your fish and fry are an added bonus. You can go bonkers, if you let yourself, trying to figure out why they swallowed. Was it something I am doing wrong???? Don't go there my friends - its probably not anything you are doing or are not doing Remember Rule #1 and remind yourself of Rule #1 each time they swallow.

Enjoy your fish!
