Default Petro Trewavasae Spawn

Pulled 5 eggs from my only Female today
Petrochromis Trewavasae

Now I know why these are expensive to buy,not big spawns at all. But the eggs are huge, 5 is all I pulled from her, they have very few eggs compared to other Petro's from the research I have found. My pair that I have are around 5 inches long. The female has spawned at least 3 previous times, never held longer then two days. I starved the tank for 4 days and stripped today. Hoping they are all viable, I have them in the tumbler.

Good luck and good spawn. At 4 days Petro eggs are very sensitive so I have my fingers xrossed. :thumbup:

Out of the 5 only 3 were fertilized, They have eyes and tail going on day 8 since they spawned.
