My terns were breeding some time ago, I just found one left abought 1", I didn't know they were breeding, tank is set up in the garage with low lighting, must have lost the rest, waiting to see if breeding takes place again.

Hmm. Kinda fishy (no pun intended) for a 1st post but congrats on the spawn. If I were you I would take that 1"er out ASAP and put it in a 10g or something like that to grow it out and make sure it really is a baby tern. How big is the tank? How many fish and what kind are in it? Any pics?

100 Gal. 3- Terns 6-7", 1- 8"RBP, 1- 5" Piraya, already removed the baby out, main tank is in a dark garage, I haven't paid much attention to them lately, just to drop some food in, until I did a water change, that's when I found the 1" fry, big suprise to me. The Terns are about 1 year old, they were given to me as baby's abought 1", from a guy that had a breeding pair. I have had P's on & and off for 25 years, first time breeding.

Before this becomes a bashing thread im getting photos to confim wether they are in fact ternetzi. P. natteri have been found to have color variations. I have a breeding pair of natts with the yellow color variation. Lets just wait.

I'm curious if these terns (Rich1) came from Ohio?

What are you guys talking about! Those are ternetzis with red bellies. Pygocentrus Natterreri! Am I wrong? If I am then I must have some bogus info.
Pygocentrus nattereri = commonly named as redbelly and ternetzi. Hollywood has seen the fish, provided the photos and they are common red belly.

How things going Brad?
