Re: Agassizii breeding assistance needed

Thank you all for the great information.  I thought I was on the right
track; just wanted to make sure I wasn't missing something important.
Patience isn't always my long suit.

Dave, you mention the age of the fish.  I received them at the end of May,
01.  The fish were sexable and I've had them for almost 10 months.  Age
shouldn't be a factor should it?

And, Mike you mentioned another possibility.  These fish were supposed to be
of stock from the Rio Ampiyacu.  Does this help with the possibility that
the female is A. bitaeniata.

Again, thank you all for the great feedback.  I'll keep you posted.
