Well my Red OB Zebras are spawning right now.  Does anyone know how long they hold the eggs?

Mike,
According to what I found online they hold 2-3 weeks.  http://animal-world.com/encyclo/fresh/cichlid/RedZebra.php

Keep in mind , as was mentioned at the big auction and in the newsletter, that P.zebra has been split into about 20 different species.  For BAP purposes, any zebras submitted would ilkely go in as Metriaclima sp. (of which you can only submit one) unless you can get a solid ID down to species. You'd have to do a little digging on OB Zebras because I think they're a hybrid and therefore would be your one Metriaclima sp. allowed for that genus.  None of this matters too much if you're just breeding to breed.  But for BAP it's a newly emerged issue with the recent taxonomic changes.  Lots of people are going to be doing some serious homework to get their fish properly identified.

Hope that helps. Smiley
