Phoenixfishroom Posted April 27 Share Posted April 27 Ok so I was cleaning my tank the other day and found 1 s.contractus baby. I would say it is probably just about a month old, just starting to swim upside down and about the size of a corydora habrosus, which share a tank with my synos. I am pretty happy about this occurrence but this means that I need to move the contractus out of that tank. They live in a mixed school with s.nigriventris and while I don’t think this is a hybrid I don’t want hybrids in the future. Also, obviously someone at the other eggs/fry and I dont think they eat their own young. so now I am setting up a new tank and looking for more contractus. They are used to living in a school of 10, but there are only 4 of them. I did happen to look while there were zebra variant nigriventris available and just ordered 6 of them so that school will still be full size… contractus are hard to come by though. Hopefully they will just increase their own numbers a bit more in the near future. I plan to use the wet/dry season method on their new tank to stimulate spawning. I will say I was overdue for a water change on that tank, I have heard that you need to let the tank get a little dirty, there ,at be something to that. 1 Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
