Talking L333 Surprise


After a long wait, only 4+ years
My L333 have finally bred, I did threaten to sell them all a month before lol
in a 3 foot tank with 5 L333's, Only one is female :/
I walked past their tank and noticed a Cardinal tetra playing very excitedly with something yellow, looking closer OMG It's a wriggler I frantically I scoop the ones I could see into a sieve, then go bk to Dad's log to retrieve what ever hadn't escaped yet...
Well... I picked up his log and upturned it, I thought it would be just dad, but Plonk into the net went Dad & Mum & some just hatched wriggling fry :/ OMG Three casualties with the thrashing of Ma n Pa in the net Ma n Pa go bk into tank and all the fry go into sieve
They survived the chaos of capture
I was worried at first, because three looked like they had no eyes lol
Then it dawned on me what they were Oh my lordy lou ... I can't believe my eyes.. Could they be? Noo surely not, But ...They are albinos, I very nearly exploded & shrieked with utter delight, Not only had they finally gotten down to business, They gave me a bonus for my patience

Day 1


Day 2




Day 3




Day 4




Day 5




Day 6




Day 7






Day 8






Day 9




Their sieve


Into a saver


aged 2 months
















Daddy, named CC, bred by Brengun's Plecos


Mummy, named Yella


A month later I see a stray in the L333 tank, Oops, I snatched it out and put it with his siblings, total 10 het fry & 3 Albino fry
Now to keep them alive, So far so good, none have been lost 3 months on and they doing well, cept for one Albino, it's the lightest in colour & the smallest by a wide margin, It seems to be a bit special
About a month later, I went to catch Pa n Ma to do an ID shoot & move them to their love shack Low n behold, as I tip out PA, a lovely batch of plump eggs comes out with him(25), I'm freaked out once again, I do the same as last time They fungused within a day and It seems they were not fertilized...I think I may have interrupted the process :/ Oops again ...
So now they are in their private love shack and I anticipate a new batch any time now

Well done you Mooo! Couldn't have happened to a nicer or more patient fish keeper.

I scored one albino L333 myself but I haven't been able to figure out yet which of my 3 females laid it so I have moved the male with one female into a tank of their own and will test mate each female one at a time.

Hi & Thanks Irene
Any species can carry the het/albino gene, even hoomans ;) It's just a fluke of the union of the parents. the trick s to breed them true ;) Might take a few years but we're working on it
