    The colony has been in my 180g tank since Jan 2005 and they began spawning within 3 mos of getting them so my best guestimate is they are between 12-14 years old. They are still spawning and started slowing down a little about 2 years ago. Frankly, I haven't had the time to strip them, tumble the eggs and raise the babies in my floating nurseries. I've sold fry to a few folks that have been waiting a very long time but mainly I've been letting the moba mommas hold and spit. The babies have been some expensive feeders. Keeping up with a spawning moba colony takes time which I don't have these days due to a new job I started over a year ago. I spend alot of evening time with my 2 yr old grandson which I truly enjoy.

    The colony is healthy and eating well. I may make a few changes to the factory. LOL I have to remove several large pieces of holey rock to catch a momma that's holding eggs and ready to strip. I may remove a few hiding places, but then again that could cause more problems with positioning/aggression.

    Thanks for the shoutout bro!
