These are a pair of wild Heros Notatus that I got about 2 months ago. The eggs hatched yesterday and they are with fry in this picture.

I'd imagine there isn't too many knocking around.

We received (FinsFurFeathers) six of these from Aquarium Glaser about two months ago. I sold what looked like a pair to a lad in Sligo. I haven't heard from him since. I took the other four home to see if I could get a pair from them.

I found that the difference between males and females is not as obvious as with other Heros. About two weeks ago I noticed a pair was forming. I was surprised to see eggs there on Sunday as they are still quite small. I removed the other fish at this stage. The eggs hatched yesterday or late on Thursday.

They are on their own in a 325L tank.
Ph: 7.5
Temp: 27 degrees.
