Thumbs up Caudopunctatus spawn!

Actually caught me by surprise as i was wondering if they had paired up or not because no breeding activity was observed after 2 long months but they finally bred so here are the pictures

the couple


the eggs---best shot i could get, there are actually about 10plus in there

Congrats on the spawn, glad that you have been rewarded for your patience.

Never saw their eggs before, only knew they were spawning when I saw a cloud of fry. Keep us updated
