My pair of L. cyclurus surprised me with a batch of about 40 fry!

The fry are now set up in their own 15 gallon tank with some small Cichlids to keep them settled in. The cyclurus seem to be eating as their bellies are full. Hope I can get them through this critical phase...

Some 19 days later, the fry are doing very well. I don't think I've lost one... They're about 3/8" long now. They've darkened up and are now pretty much jet black. Still schooling around together.

Still alive and kicking. Growing well. I think I'll be turning some in for BAP next week.

And, the pair spawned again last week!!

I turned in cyclurus fry for Catfish BAP points last night at the August meeting. Denis Rozmus snatched them up!!

The cyclurus are nice sized now. Nice to see them swarm around. I'll try to post pics soon.

Hey Don, what are you feeding the fry? Did you leave them with the parents or raise them separately.

Dave,
I feed a number of freeze dried foods, like brine shrimp and bloodworms. I raised them in a tank of their own.
