    Red Hump Eartheaters

    I was able to get my hands on some more red humps a while ago. I now have a breeding male and harem spawning away. Here are a few pics:

    Very cool. The glass breeder looks great.

    How did you get the fry into the glass breeder?
    Also, where can I buy one of those glass breeders?

    I bought this one off angels fins. For mouthbrooders I remove them from the females mouths in a seperate tank using a folded twist tie... just part the mouth and they fall out. Then I use a turkey baster to move them from the tank to the tumbler.

    Heh, sounds to me like you've got it down to quite a system. Very cool.

    Lots of babies on the go! Would love to see the progress with these guys, I enjoy watching them transform from this stage! Is that Mama sticking close to the tumbler? And if so does she stay with them all the time?

    Thanks, I can post some additional pics as they get bigger. The eggs are actually from 3 different females. They do check on them but from only time to time now.
