 Hi  All,
 
 My  Salvini  Cichlid  have  bred  and  the  fry  are  doing  great!!!
 
 Videos  here:  
 
 http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Hlh4yGUnLUY
 http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hJm6HcxJfbs
 
 A  small  flashback,  these  guys  bred  a  month  back  in  my  community  tank.  They  did  beat  up  the  13+  inch  oscars  and  defended  the  eggs  successfully.  But  defending  the  fries  prooved  to  be  more  than  a  fin-ful  for  them  and  lost  all  the  fry.  I  really  suspect  that  they  got  pulled  into  the  Eheim,  rahter  than  being  eaten  by  tankmates.  The  Salvini  are  super  aggressive  and  the  tankmates  know  that  it  is  not  a  better  idea  to  mess  with  their  kids  :d
 
 So,  I  moved  them  to  a  seperate  tank  (3  x  2.5  x  1.5)  and  they  laid  eggs  within  a  week.  The  fry  are  now  10  days  old  and  I  dont  see  any  significant  dip  in  their  numbers.  Feeding  them  with  powdered  hikari  cihlid  gold  pellets  and  hikari  first  bites.
 
 I'll  try  to  keep  this  thread  updated  with  videos  @  regular  intervals..Enjoy!
 
 Please  feel  free  to  add  your  suggestions,  because  this  is  my  first  time  breeding  egg  layers.

 Thank  you  Raj  and  Abhi...
 
 @Raj:  I  am  in  Ramamurthy  Nagar,  Bangalore.  I'll  be  glad  to  share  them  with  hobbyists  once  they  grow  up...
 @Abhi:  I  bought  them  as  a  pair.  I  feel  it  is  pretty  easy  to  sex  them,  as  the  females  have  a  dark  patch  on  their  dorsal  fin  and  a  spot  near  the  gill.
 
 
 Regards,
 Gokul

 Betta,  
 
 Congrats  on  the  fry.  
 
 Feels  good  after  you've  seen  this  activity  in  your  tank.  Please  do  let  us  know  if  you're  planning  to  sell  some  in  the  coming  days.  Will  be  interested.  I  am  from  Bangalore  too.  
 
 One  doubt:  how  big  do  these  fish  grow?
 
 Cheers,  
 
 Karthik

 Thanks  you  Deba  n  Karthik...   Smile  
 
 Karthik,  from  what  I  read,  they  cap  at  about  6  inches.  Mine  were  1+  in,  when  I  biught  them.  The  male  is  now  nearing  3in.  and  the  female  is  visibly  smaller  than  him.
 
 But  when  people  say  'Size  does  not  matter',  I  saw  it  with  these  guys.  When  they  were  less  than  2in  sized,  they  managed  to  beat  the  %@$@#@  out  of  my  fully  mature  oscars.
