I bought a pair of Synodontis lucipinnis at a LFS on Friday. The spawned a 100+ eggs last night. I hope that they are fertile. Lucipinnis is often sold as S. petricola. It is often referred to as the Dwarf Petricola and was not recognized as a separate species until 2006.

They hatched out today and they are a very tiny fry. I hope they are hardy and easy to raise. Must be at least 100 fry.

Nice :)

Do these spawn in a cave?

You put a flower pot with a 1 inch hole in it over a bowl of black marbles. When you notice the female is thinner you take the marbles out of the bowl and the eggs are in the bottom.

The eggs only take 2 days to hatch.

The fry all died this time. Often the first spawn is weak and does not make it. You don't always master things the first time round. I'm sure that they will spawn again soon.

I've read that the fry are also quite light sensitive when they hatch.

I loved watching mine!! They are near the top of the list of my favorite fish that I've owned.
