Green Terror Pair having babies

I didn't think such a young breeding pair could breed and fertilize the eggs so young and immature at only 2 inches long.. but here is their picture and the eggs are doing great.. only two more days to go to wiggle time.. so i am keeping my fingers crossed..

Hi Always thought these terrors had to be older and bigger to breed and have eggs.. here is a picture of the pair just 2 inches big and their eggs are on the leaf on the right.Image

Contrary to popular belief it is possible to breed Central and South Americans. I’ve had ½” Archocentrus and Cryptoheros breed as well as some Herichthys at 2” and numerous Africans (I know different forum). Dan

You must be joking, Dan, - about the belief. I have now panamensae, nigrofasciatus, colobrensae septemfasciatus meeki and uropthalmus with fry, and robertsoni with eggs

no problem, breeding them

Woops! Apparently I edited my test a bit too much.

I meant to say, "Contrary to popular belief it is possible to breed Central and South Americans at a small size" etc...

Sorry for the confusion.
