Further information:
Here I'd like to introduce you to something else as gobies. Originally I had purchased the spiny eels because this basin formally overflowing with about 1200 Neocaridina heteropoda and I was no longer master this plague.

They say, spiny eels do not reproduce in the aquarium. My can not read fortunately. :-) Sometime in the summer of 2010 flew anyway, the first 5 mm long Stachelaalkind by the flow at the wheel and my nose over and I was, to put it mildly, about to faint ... :-)

After I had fished the first 14 pups, I got over a long period time every Thursday morning about 10 juveniles restocked. At the end there were 77 ...

The breeding of these dwarves was a very special experience. Spiny per se are already the most endearing castle ghosts, I can think of. The hatchlings use a Kindchenschema its finest. You can spend hours sitting in front of the aquarium and watch them "learning", because they discover everything they need time may. On its own, very cautious and unhurried nature

If you want to know more about it, on my side, there is the breeding report it.
