wow its an amazing of two golden weather loacheskaffinated wrote: ↑Fri Aug 20, 2010 10:20 pmI have two golden weather loaches I've had for less than two weeks and today I found at least 4 little tiny tiny tiny almost threadlike babies wiggling all around the tank. I never noticed eggs, nothing (and my substrate is black sand) but omg they're adorable!!! I tried getting pics of em but I was having issues so I'm gonna try again tomorrow. Everything I've read says that they don't breed in captivity and I just wanted to share how cool it was that I only got two cause I ran into the petstore for something else and couldn't resist and not long after I've got wee ones too!!!
Pics as soon as I can, promise. But literally, just picture from 1/4 inch to an inch long thin threads wiggling around the tank =-)
I'm so excited!!!
Also, I advise that you keep a tight lid on your tank. Dojos are notorious for escaping through whatever openings they can fit through, and they can live for a short time out of water. To prevent escaping, make sure that whatever equipment holes are in your lid are too small for them to get through. Fry, if those are fry, will slip through almost any opening, so a fry tank needs a solid lid with no holes in it.
Let's hope these reallly are dojo fry. If not, you will still have learned something.
