Re: Sexual dimorphism on Triglachromis otostigma

I've observed that behaviour with my alpha Tropheus, I wondered what was going on. Any further details on that?

Re: Golden Ocellatus help after breeding!

From the evidence you were both lucky and unlucky. ;-) The fact is the pair bond has broken down after the spawn so your pair are probably not well matched. It's a better practice to get 6 and allow them to form a pair naturally; forcing the issue by placing a female with a male, one that has previo...

Re: Golden Ocellatus help after breeding!

At some point there was a male and female in the tank and they spawned, so my question was about the 2 fish you have - are they the only ocellatus you've had in the tank, or did you have more at some point? You would be correct in thinking the spawn size is probably due to their inexperience/age. Oc...

Re: Golden Ocellatus help after breeding!

L. ocellatus are little fish with big ideas, in my opinion a 10g tank does not offer enough footprint for them. The number of shells is immaterial here since the male has taken the entire tank to be his. For some reason the pair bond has broken since the spawn, his behaviour now is typical of ocella...

Hmmmm! I voted "I don't agree" before reading the thread......this on the basis that I keep some singletons in community tanks (I don't enjoy species tanks, I'm not in the hobby to breed fish.) This issue really isn't about singletons though as they do interact with other fish and some species seem ...

I don't think the fish was being stupid (nor you for that matter bantam, this has happened lots of times to me with White Clouds and again with no harm done.) The ocellatus left its territory to attack the greatest threat, other fish may be in that tank but to the ocellatus they would be "dear enemi...
