Anytime Mike, good to know it got cleaned up for ya Very Happy
Let me know if you want anything else out of that tank...and BTW I think Red Tiger lotus is one of my favorites...but java moss is by far the most useful IMO

I talked to him about them last night and we are green lit! I think I may keep them in the hallway for now instead of moving them to the basement. I have not bred keyholes before...how aggressive do they get when the are defending a spawn (I'm trying to figure out a way to get a pair to work in my 75 plant tank)

actually these fish the keyholes are a pretty timid little fish anything will scare them off into the plants, my cutteri and now the blue acaras are beating them up, they have spawned before and they just seemed to chase off the intruder at about 6 inches from the nest and then they return to the nest but really it is never really aggressive were it will keep going after them to defend the nest and if another cichlid keeps coming at them and will not back off they will let the spawn get eaten, pretty much sissies in all for a cichlid from the amazons there common name are keyholes they attain four to five inches total which is were they are now and are only 2 yrs old for a fish that lives 10 to 15 yrs their scientific name is cleithracara maronii they would do wonderfull in your 75gal at home and they seem to be secret spawners and would do nicely in a tank with tetras and other non aggressive cichlids, and they will fit nicely with the jurarapi they were fine with mine, but if you want to produce some good fry you might need to place them in a tank by themselves, my four have been in the 120gal since they were juvaniles so they only know a bigger tank and i really dont know how well they would do in a smaller system, so i will be at the shop this thursday to drop them off sometime near the openning of the store, cool dude i will talk to you later.. afro

WILCO Mike...BTW feeding blackworms is a great way to get stubborn fish feeding and I have NEVER had a problem with any disease transmission or anything else from feeding them...I actually kinda like feeding them on occasion.

my cutteri males are huge dude and they are hooking up with the big female red point but the size ratio is still small compaired to the cutteri, BTW when i introduced the red points in the 120gal they automatically started to punk out fish, too funny they are so darn aggressive.. Twisted Evil
