The butterfly telescopes spawned today! I raised the temperature and increased the photoperiod a little bit about a week ago in an attempt to trigger spawning. I noticed some chasing, so I added a few spawning mops a few days ago, and found them covered in eggs today. I'm fairly certain Minai is the female, but they could be fertilized by multiple males. I think Luca, Clyde, and Benji were doing the majority of the chasing. I am most interested in a Minai x Clyde cross, but I'll take what I can get for now. :) I had to do quite a bit of rearranging in the fish room to make space for more fry/eggs. I have a few hundred or so ghost bristol fry right now that were taking up all the tank space! I'll do a Tank Talk fish room update video soon so you guys can see what's been going on in the fish room lately.
