All's Well..

...in the breeder tank. My pair finally allowed the fry (newly hatched fish) to attach to them and eat. This is the first time the parents allowed the tiny fish to pick at their slime coat and now the chance for survival looks good. This is a picture of the male fish of the pair.
...I moved the Santarem pair to the show tank around noon. There were no acclimation problems at all - I just netted them and plopped them into the new tank. So far it appears peaceful with the the male Wild Blue showing a lot of interest in the female Santarem. With a little luck, these two will produce a spawn shortly. It remains to be seen.
