I talked to Mike at Finatics last week, and he said he has some GBRs and EBRs in stock (buy 3 get the 4th free). Not sure if that deal is still on, best to contact Mike directly to check.

No Sir, I didn't say wilds at Finnatics , I'm not sure what he has in stock because that day I had to leave early on Saturday as soon as I got there. I did see some Apistos that looked nice, but he has a new set up of tanks against the wall with lots of new fish. I will have to go there during the week to chat with him , he is always to busy to talk but he makes time if your patient.

Just got home and checked up on the pair and their fry, and saw all the fry free swimming
Some are already nipping at the plants I have in the tank, but I put some microworms in to get them going.
Will keep everyone posted.

Fed and checked on the parents and their fry this morning, and things are going very well. The fry are all feeding (starting to see their bellies turn white from the microworms, and poop trails behind them haha), and becoming more independent (went from a cloud that followed the parents, to swimming across the length and height of the tank).

Was hesitant about doing a water change yesterday, because the sensitivity of the fry, but using a drip line to top off the tank worked out. Took about 3-4 hours to complete.

Will update again later this evening.

Fed and checked on the rams just a moment ago, and some of the fry are beginning to starting to wonder around the tank (hiding in and nipping at my cabomba.carolinia and Myriophyllum.scabratum).
The parents seem to have a hard time trying to keep their school of fry together. Once a group of fry leave the school, the parents chase after them to bring them back, but as soon as they do, they have to go catch the ones they left behind haha.
On another note, the fry seem to have doubled in size compared to yesterday

Will be more than happy to sell some rams to everyone on the forum hahaha!
Once they reach the appropriate size that is.
The breeding pair will stay with me forever though

Well looks like my fry have become bored of feeding on microworms. Tried feeding them today and they completely ignored them. They seem more interested in nipping at my plants and the surface of my substrate.
Decided to make powdered fry food by finely grinding Northfin Krill Gold 1mm pellets. The fry seem eager to eat the stuff, but it sinks too fast, and the fry aren't big enough to take baby brineshrimp yet.
