A few days ago, I discovered that the Hypoptopoma sp had eggs. I didn't know how long the eggs had been there, but today I found out that they transformed into larvae. Here a picture of it.

I really like your aquariums, and all the nice pictures you share with us.

How did it end up with the larvae?
Didn't make it. It's really hard to get them take some food. But I got a second change now and trying to feed them Spirulina algae and Liquifry.

@RHD, thanks

I'll try to make a photo of the Hypoptopoma with only the night lights on.

@Seanor, The name of the fish is standing under the picture. It's the Dicrossus filamentosus male.

Here are some more pictures:

Thanks. Some more pictures.

Plants have grown, so I need to change a bit in the tank soon.
