They probably went for a swim :laugh:
I added lots of moss and leaves to the tank to give a chance to the fry.

I collected 10 eggs during the week and putted them in a small tub with tank water.
So far so good in 8 of them i can see the eyes :)

A little update on these beauties :
I managed to get 15 viable fry before having to give them away along with the parents :(, had to go back to France for a few weeks and didnt want to leave the chore of feeding and water changes along with looking after all my shrimp tanks to my wife.
But to my delight 2 young fishes appeared in my shrimp tanks, some eggs or fry must have travel from the tanks through the buckets used for water changes :crazy: , first i thought that was a shrimp swimming a bit funny :woohoo:
Here is a picture of them, only have one left, the other one must have jumped out of the tank before their tank was ready :(

That's a great thing with Killies - they have the peculiar habit of never ceasing to amaze.

Hopefully you'll be able to obtain whichever gender of one you don't have, then you'll be able to start the whole process again, Anthony.
