RE: Moving fry

Title: RE: Moving fry

   Does the same hold true for my fish (which are a yet-to-be ID'ed Apistogramma, we think it might be Rio Mamore)? I imagine so, huh - Altispinosa are about the same size as Apistos, but do they have the same space requirements relative to their growth?

   I guess I'm going to have to look for a new tank soon. Just gotta figure out where to put it. (And how to convince my wife I'm not getting obsessed with my fish.)

This method may be fine for the first week of free swimming but I wouldn't
imagine they will grow in this environment.  It will take about 4-6 months
(in a proper rearing tank with filter plus regular water changes and
feeding) before your Altispinosa attain the size required by a LFS.
