Default my albino Bristlenoses have finally bred..

hi guys,

after quite a long wait, my pair has finally bred...

they probably spawned right after i posted the video clip in bro Fireblade's thread about a week ago... because this morning before i wanted to do water change i realised the male is fanning non-stop, so had to shine a torch light to see if they really spawned..

to my surprise the little ones have already hatched and seemed almost free swimming (no more obvious egg sacs)...

here's a pic of the male guarding the cave...

here's the male inching away for a breather.... not many fries to my surprise.. maybe eaten up? or low hatch rate? bec the female was very filled with eggs, i was anticipating at least 20-30, but seems lesser....
