 Hey  Gokul  !
 
 Any  plans  to  keep  fronts  in  future  ?  I  would  like  to  sell  some  of  mine  to  lighten  the  bioload  of  my  tank...  Kindly  let  me  know  if  you  would  like  to  have  a  pair  or  2...
 
 Thanks  again  !
 Regards
 Kush

 I  somehow  missed  this  thread...
 Your  brichs  will  not  be  able  to  kill  your  fronts.  Fronts  are  large  enough  to  take  care  of  themselves.  Having  said  that,  we  cannot  predict  fish  behavior  in  captivity  very  well  which  is  the  reason  why  I  have  brichs  and  julies  in  their  own  species  tank.  Both  breeding  happily  in  their  own  tank.  
 Just  keep  a  watch,  if  the  brichs  do  not  kill  the  fronts,  the  fronts  will  eat  away  all  the  brich  fries  if  they  breed.  
 BTW,  your  setup  looks  neat.  I  am  sure  this  tank  has  a  lot  of  potential  and  we  will  see  a  lot  more   Thumb Up

 Hi  there  !
 
 Thanks  a  lot  for  the  kind  reply  and  for  the  encouragment  !  Wow  -  thats  a  real  compliment  and  I'm  just  too  excited  &  chargedup  !  Thanks  a  lot  again...
 
 My  Brichs  seems  to  have  grown  much  healthy  (they're  on  a  daily  diet  of  Bloodowrms,  Earthworms,  Brine  Shrimp,  Spirulina  Pellets,  Tetra  Bits,  Shrimps  etc)  one  pair  seems  to  have  paired-off  and  has  picked  up  a  cave  on  the  right  corner.  No  aggression  so  far  and  all  the  brichs  and  fronts  seem  to  be  unharmed...
 
 Any  ideas  on  when  they'l  start  breeding  ?  I  mean  atwhat  size  ?  So  far  from  what  I've  read  on  the  internet,  they  seem  to  start  pretty  early,  at  about  2"  size...
 
 Kindly  advice  if  you  have  any  ideas...  Thanks  a  lot  again  for  the  kindness  and  for  encouraging  me...
 Regards  and  Care
 Kush

 They  do  breed  pretty  early  but  in  my  case  after  they  paired,  they  took  a  long  time  to  spawn.  One  thing  is,  do  not  change  the  setup.
 Best  of  luck.

 Hi  Friends  !
 
 I  just  found  that  one  of  my  Brich  pairs  has  spawned  and  I  can  see  a  group  of  little  greenish  colored  egg  !  Both  the  parents  seem  to  take  turns  and  seem  to  be  'kissing'  the  eggs  !  
 
 The  strange  thing  that  I  notice  is  that  they're  arent  aggressive  atall  and  are  allowing  all  the  fish  (even  the  fronts)  to  come  near  their  cave.  They  occassionally  drive  off  other  brichs  but  when  a  front  appraoches,  they  just  run  away  leaving  the  eggs  at  risk...
 
 Is  this  normal  ?  From  all  that  I've  read  and  have  been  adviced,  brichs  would  protect  their  eggs  very  aggressively,  but  this  is  really  strange...
 
 Any  ideas  friends  ?
 
 Kindly  advice...
 Regards
 Kush

 First  things  first,  congrats  Kush.  Its  a  fantastic  feeling  when  your  fishes  breed!
 
 I  would  suggest  you  get  another  tank  ready,  so  you  can  move  the  fronts  in  a  tank  of  their  own.  If  you  let  the  brichardis  be  in  a  tank  of  their  own,  they  will  do  good  too,  you  will  see  them  breeding  and  increasing  in  number.  This  combination  can  work  today,  but  when  you  think  long  term,  I  doubt  it.
 
 Just  my  humble  opinion.

 Hi  Sir,
 
 Thanks  a  lot  for  the  kind  wishes  and  for  encouraging  me  as  always.  Yes,  I'm  so  excited  and  happy  to  see  the  eggs  (though  there  are  just  a  few  of  them  this  time)
 
 Sir,  I've  already  planned  to  move  the  fronts  but  I  guess  I'll  have  to  remove  all  the  rocks  before  I  can  catch  the  fish  and  now  as  there  are  eggs  attached  to  the  rocks,  I  guess  I'll  wait  for  these  to  hatch  before  doing  anything...
 
 Kindly  advice  and  guide  me  Sir...
 Thanks  a  lot  !
 Regards  and  Care
 Kush

 Congratulations  !!!  The  only  thing  that  you  have  to  worry  now  is  how  to  stop  them  from  breeding     ROFL  
 You  do  not  have  to  move  anything  now,  just  keep  a  watch  let  the  fries  hatch.  Even  if  you  do  not  have  survivors  in  this  batch,  in  the  next  batch,  you  will.

 Just  wanted  to  update...  The  eggs  didnt  survive  :(
 
 I  guess  it  was  their  first  spawn  and  they  were'nt  experienced  enough  care  for  the  eggs...  I  hope  I'll  have  better  luck  in  the  next  spawn...

 Hi  friends  !
 I  really  dont  think  that  the  babies  survived  or  if  the  eggs  hatched...  I  find  that  the  parents  have  completely  left  the  nest  and  are  allowing  all  the  fish  to  go  near  or  even  inside  the  nest...  but  I  have  a  feeling  that  this  pair  is  again  getting  ready  to  spawn  as  they  are  again  moving  about  the  nest  and  seem  to  be  cleaning  it...  Any  ideas  if  Brichardis  always  lay  eggs  in  the  same  spot  or  can  they  change  the  site  at  every  spawn  ?
 Also  are  there  any  passive  -  less  aggressive  brichardi  species  available  -  if  yes,  can  mine  be  those  ?  I'm  asking  this  because  my  brichs  seem  to  be  totally  peaceful  and  infact  very  afraid  of  other  fish  (the  fronts)
 I  found  that  another  pair  had  laid  eggs  in  a  nearby  nest  but  that  nest  too  is  taken  over  by  a  small  front  (almost  of  the  same  size  as  the  brichardi)  and  the  parenst  just  ran  away  from  the  nest.  I  just  found  that  all  the  eggs  have  again  been  eaten  from  there  too...
 Any  ideas  on  this  Friends  ?
