So, sorry I've been slack on updates... I ended having 4 boys and 2 girls... a few days ago, my largest male became a belly slider... I also found that one of my girls had eggs and was ready to breed so I put a peat bowl in there.
Back tracking some, since the hatch rate was so low on these guys I AGAIN dried the peat for another month and rewet it (as mentioned in prior post)... so I have another tank with about 16 fish in it that are one month behind these. this tank is just now starting to color up so as soon as I can put them all together I will be wetting a bag of peat of the fish I first raised. I'll try to get some pics up of these guys soon.
