Default Breeding the Petro reds-update

My breeding group essentially stopped breeding consistently about 8 months ago. Not sure why. Most females were swallowing the eggs or just not spawning. I got a few fry here and there but not a lot. However, three of the mahale females have come through the last few weeks. I pulled 51 wiglers from one female a few days ago. 48 survived and are in 2 tumblers. I pulled 56 today from another one. They are 2 tumblers. I'll pulled from the 3rd female Monday. If I get what I estimate I'll pull from her, I'll have over 150 Petro red fry. My best yields ever in the 5 years I have been breeding

Due to the numerous emails I am getting asking to reserve fry, a deposit will be required to hold fry on a first come first serve basis. 50 have been reserved.
