Re: Biotodoma Cupido

PK333- what's the sex ratio on the group up for sale? Have you seen them? do they have any distinguishable markings? G'day timber , The seller believes the group to be two males and two females, but many people are not so sure. I have only seen photos of them online, as they are located in a state ...

Re: Biotodoma Cupido

Great footage Dan! Are those your fish? I noticed that in the video, both fish had stripes on the cheek. According to Weidner and everyone else, the female has dashes or dots on the cheeks. anyone have experience otherwise? PK333- what's the sex ratio on the group up for sale? Have you seen them? do...

Re: Biotodoma Cupido

sorry to hijack, but why is it that only males get exported? For many years, all the times a group of fish gets imported into my area, there are no females. This goes for cupido, sp. Santarem, and wavrini.

Re: Biotodoma cupido "Santarem"

Anyone? I'm asking because I notice that often, there are listings of Biotodoma sp. Santarem coming out of Peru. Seems odd to me that they would be on a Peruvian export list. My fish came from Peru and although they are still young, I am skeptical that they are truly sp. Santarem. Does anyone here k...

Re: Heros sp Atabapo

Oh well... I threw some food in the tank for the other fish today. the male was brooding, and after about thirty seconds of restraint, he dove into the pile of pellets and I think he swallowed all the eggs. Has anyone encountered this? Should I have held off on feeding, or is this something that I s...

Re: Heros sp Atabapo

Thanks Andrew! Awesome pic BTW. Like clockwork, the female picked up the eggs pretty much 48 hours after spawning. The tough thing is that the Guinancara have just spawned as well and they are facing off quite a bit. To make matters more interesting, they share the tank with a pair of Acaricthys hec...

Re: Heros sp Atabapo

Thanks Dan,
When do they pick up the eggs and incubate them? This is coming up on day 3 and the eggs are still on the driftwood. They are fending off a pair of Guinancara who also are entering spawning mode. Needless to say, there is a lot of action in this tank right now.

Heros sp Atabapo

Hi,
My pair of Heros sp. Atabapo spawned yesterday and I was wondering if anyone here knows how long it will take for the fry to hatch and become free swimming?

thanks!

ich and C. notophthalmus

My trio of C notophthalmus have been battling ich for about 10 days and no matter what I try, it keeps getting worse. I started with my standard treatment of raising the temp to 85 degrees, a tablespoon of salt per 10 gallons and the prescribed dosage of quick cure (formalin/ malachite green, 1 drop...

Re: what is this fish?

Thanks guys for your help. And although there seems to be conflicting remarks, this helps a lot. Florent, Their origin of Peru is third hand info, so I'm taking that info with a grain of salt. Heck, they also said it was a Nannacara! I've kept curviceps and thayeri before and these fish are definite...

thanks for the suggestions. Xenos are pretty scarce in my region, they were "in fashion" some years ago when I was keeping tangs before. Nowit seems only Callochromis is the only thing people are keeping around here these days. They, I suspect are a little too active and assertive, yes?

tankmates for Benthochromis

Hello, I'm new here. It's been a while since I've kept Tangs and I am getting back into the fray with a pair of Benthos. They are about 5 inches right now and reside in a 125 gallon tank by themselves. They are surprisingly tame and quite comfortable, they come to beg for food whenever I come near. ...
