    Success at last ! Channa Aurantimaculata Born in CANADA!

    I've been keeping this quite waiting for the moment I could snap this pic to make it official !

    Today after many years of trying I have Channa Aurantimaculata fry ! I feel safe in claiming this is a FIRST for North America, and only one of a handful successful breedings in captivity world wide!

    They are just a couple quick pic's for now because it there first day out of dad's mouth and I don't want to stress them or the parents at all!

    First here's mom, who spends her time eyeballing me makings sure I stay away from the male and her babies !

    And dad first holding so far as I know , I was watching carefully woke up on 04/29/14 and he was out of his usual cave and staying at the surface gulping air regularly for the eggs.

    And spotted about 10 minutes ago the fry made there first appearance !

    Wow Devon, you must be absolutely pumped right about now. I don't know anything about this fish but if they are that hard to breed this is quite a feat. Congratulations.

    Thanks everyone. I am quite excited about it, I'll be sure to keep the updates coming and should have some new pic's soon.

    They are all still doing well, no signs of disease/fungus or dead fry , I can see that there little bellies are full through those clear bodies so they are eating. Both parents are side by side defending them with no signs of aggression toward each other. From what little information i can find growth should be quite rapid so wont be long before they start looking a bit more like snakeheads and less like translucent tadpoles lol
