 Nice  thread  humaid,  this  is  one  thread  i  will  look  forward  to  everyday
 
 Species:  herotilapia  multispinosa
 
 how  many:  started  with  a  breeding  pair  i  got  from  a  friend  who  had  grown  4  together,  they  pair  up  easily  with  differnet  males  and  females,  a  adult  male  and  female  introduced  will  form  a  pair,  no  worries  of  growing  them  together.
 
 how  long  trying:  about  4  months
 
 successfull  spawns:  4-5,  they  eat  the  fry  a  week  after  they  become  free  swimming,  seperated  the  fry  this  time
 
 set  up-24x12x12.  a  piece  of  driftwood,  golden  sand  as  susbtrate  and  a  pot  to  serve  as  spawning  site
 
 triggers:  plenty  of  live  food  for  one  week  than  a  drop  in  water  temp  by  a  large  water  change  on  the  8th  day.
 
 Dither  fish:  have  a  large  molly  in  the  tank  to  avoid  the  pair  getting  aggressive  towards  each  other

 very  good  thread.   Thumb Up   these  kinds  of  threads  are  the  big  advantage  of  forums  where  others  experiences  teaches  anyone  new  to  a  particular  fish.
 
 im  not  doing  any  breeding  projects  at  present,  but  would  like  to  share  an  interesting  "trigger"  that  was  always  useful  in  the  past  for  piranhas.
 
 the  trigger  here  is  in  two  parts..one  is  the  feeding  schedule.unlike  most  other  fish  where  the  mantra  is  to  feed  and  feed,with  piranhas  my  schedule  was  to  starve  the  fish  for  about  10days(not  a  big  deal  for  fish  that  can  go  without  food  for  a  month),  after  the  ten  days  or  so,the  feeding  should  start  and  should  preferably  be  whole  fish  (with  the  heads  and  guts),i  get  those  4-5  inch  riverfish  from  the  market  and  freeze  them.i  used  to  give  big  feedings  daily  for  about  5  days  and  then  stop  feeding  for  the  next  1  week.  if  the  fish  were  in  good  breeding  condition,there  should  be  some  activity  in  the  3rd  or  4th  day  after  stopping  feeding.
 then  is  the  time  for  the  secong  trigger...gradually  lower  the  water  level  to  about  70%.and  then  after  a  day  fill  up  the  tank  with  cooler  water  using  a  spray  bar.(thought  to  simulate  the  wet  season).  the  spawn  generally  occurs  in  the  late  evening.if  it  doesnt  i  wait  2  days  and  repeat  the  cycle.
 
 (this  was  in  the  past  and  the  main  breeding  female  is  now  dead,  mods  are  free  to  delete  this  post  if  they  have  any  probs  with  piranhas  in  it)
 
 thanks.

 Species:  Aequidens  rivulatus
 
 How  many:  1  Male  +  4  Females
 
 How  long  trying:  More  than  6  months
 
 Any  successful  spawns  already:  Currently  have  70-80  fry  growing  out.   Previous  spawns  have  not  survived  as  I  could  not  get  them  on  a  proper  feeding  regime  (I  think)
 
 Set  up:  Currently  all  the  fish  are  in  a  1.1x.45.45  tank.   The  spawning  stone  is  at  one  end,  away  from  the  filter.   When  the  eggs  are  laid,  I  place  a  divider  to  protect  the  eggs,  and  once  they  have  hatched,  move  the  other  adults  to  another  tank.   The  spawned  tank  then  become  the  grow  out  tank.   
 
 Any  triggers/other  information  :  Green  Terrors  are  not  difficult  to  breed  if  the  fish  are  in  good  condition.   I  maintain  water  temp  at  26-27  deg.  C  and  generally  keep  the  terrors  on  a  diet  of  frozen  blodworms,  Tetra  cichlid  sticks,  shrimp  and  FD  tubifex.   On  this  diet,  I  can  get  1  spawn  every  fortnight,  but  I  am  selective  about  which  spawn  gets  to  grow  out.  This  is  based  on  the  laying  female,  as  I  have  only  1  male.
 
 Pics  have  been  posted  on  my  other  threads.   Pic  of  male  on  my  avataar.

 Mudassir  sorry  missed  your  post.  The  leleupi  spawned  in  the  common  tank  and  then  were  moved  along  with  the  fry  into  the  bb  tank.
 Feeding  was  mainly  tetrabits  supplemented  with  live  food.
