    I've sold 7 of these and keeping another 7 myself for now, which have been moved to my 240L. I've got about 10 left in the big tank, looking like miniatures of their parents and starting to spar and lip-lock amongs themselves. Time to sell the rest. Anyone want some?

    I've had no further spawnings from my adults or the juveniles I have retained. However, I'm delighted to announce the arrival of some grandchildren!
    Lou, a local fishkeeper who bought a group of seven of my juveniles has just had her first spawn. Lous_cupid_fry.jpg

    I still have some cupids for sale if anyone else wants to try!
