Gave you a quick run down on what i currently have in my tanks. This is always changing.  What do you have in your tanks?

Tried to provide as much detail on where I picked up these fish to give you more resources for your future purchases.

None of my tanks are community tanks. I'm only concerned with one thing, and that is breeding fish.

As of recent, the difficulty of the species i have been working with are more difficult. This coincides with reaching higher levels in the BAP (Breeders Award Program).

I love a good challenge!

Marble Veil Angels (from Aquariums and Ponds Murrysville)
2 adults (4 or 5 spawns)
6 Marble Veil juvenile Angels from first spawn. Kept 6, gave around 30 to local store
Spawns 2 and 3 were eaten.
Raising around 40 fry from spawn #4 (beginniing of Jan)
Raising around 150 fry from spawn #5 (end of Jan)

2 Koi Angel adults (won at January GPASI auction by Scott G.)
no spawns yet.

1 huge adult Silver Male Angel (raised in local pond during summer of course)
1 adult Marble Vail female Anger
No spawn from the two above yet. (Starting to doubt if I have them sexed correctly)

Macropudus adult pair (won at at January GPASI auction by Joe D.)
First spawn hatched today (Feb 17, 2015) number unknown but over 100

Croaking Gourami
2 adult males and 1 female
First spawn is free swimming as of today (Feb, 17, 2015 by Joe D.) number unknown but over 100

1 Adult Male.
6 fry from summer 2014. (Kept 6, gave over 30 to local store)
15~20 fry spawn from Adult mail and young female from first spawn. This was unexpected as the female is just over 1 inch. She spawned with her 4+ inch dad while 5 siblings were in the same
tank. I missed the spawn and noticed free swimming fry while cleaning the tank. Separated fry for grow out.

These fish are only 8 months old and just started spawning. I was told they had to be 2-3 years of age, but this group is breaking all the rules.

Rob,

Same reason I don't want to miss any meeting auction. Something new and different at every auction. Just wait till our big Spring auction, it will be like Christmas morning with varieties of fish.
