    Pregnant Male

    Good news-my male H. erectus is gravid!!!
    Bad news- im going out of town for a week.

    Considering that this is a surprise i probably wont keep any of the fry anyways. Im way too busy. But just for kicks, if i wanted to watch the fry being born would i miss it in the next 7 days? Isnt it like a 14 day gestation period for these guys or something?


    Some people believe that their works are nothing more than a drop in the ocean, but the ocean would have been less without that drop.

    It can be 2 to 3 weeks. Make sure ya grab your coffee before turning on the lights. Your best bet is to get the coffee and when the sun starts to come up enough to affect the tank... turn on the tank lights a little early to see the whole thing.

    If you are out of town when it happens the brood shouldn't be big enough to affect water quality where this is his first pregnancy. But now that they've figured it out, the next pregnancy could happen the day he releases the fry.
