Re: Evaluation of species profile

I don`t know if that is the problem. Tropheus are sort of a "cult fish", and many people have an almost religious stance, when it comes to the "right" way of keeping them, so it is only natural if there is a lot of disagreement with the profile. I had hoped for some factual feedback, if I have got a...

Evaluation of species profile

Re: Aquarium development

Thanks for the comment! I haven`t tried to breed the Altolamprologus, but I have had lots of mouthbrooders succesfully breeding together with the eels (the fry was not released in the tank though) There are a fair amount of images of most of the species I keep, on My website: http://www.kim-jakobsen...

Aquarium development

I have compiled photos from the start of my current tanks, to show how they have developed so far, and will continue to add new, on a more regular basis from now on. It does give a good sense of continuity, to be able to look back on the various configurations (and also act as an alarm! I move my fi...

Re: Where are the Tropheus Lovers????????

Not really unpopular, just a bit overshadowed by other cichlids right now. They will undoubtedly be back to full strength again :D

I like Tropheus very much. Right now, they are not as popular here in Denmark as they used to be, but they have a steady base of followers.

Re: Breeding Tropheus

I prefer to leave the female in the tank. This only works if the Tropheus are kept alone, or with non-predatory species, off course, and it requires a well-decorated tank.

Help with Translation

Hi! I`ve just completed the first attempts at translating my articles from Danish to English. As English is obviously not My native language, I would really appreciate any hints about phrasing, that could make the articles easier to understand, or more pleasurable to read. http://www.kim-jakobsen.dk...

Re: is it normal for 2 inch tropheus to breed

http://www.kim-jakobsen.dk/Tanganyika/TanganyikaAlgespisere/Bemba20040902.htm My experience is, that it`s pretty hard to prevent The Tropheus sp. "black" variants from spawning very early, and I really don`t see any important reasons for trying. The spawns will be very small, but given the high fre...

Re: "Unknown" Tropheus

I would guess They are a domestic colour form of a sp. "black" variant, based on the shape of Their heads. A sorry sight indeed! :(

Re: My Xenotilapia Enantiopus sp. Kilesa

They are very nice indeed! I would also say, that the Tank is a little too small. I`ve had these cichlids for a lttle over a Year, in varying Tanks, from 325-720L. I started out with 3,5 WC specimens, sold off a pair and then lost a few, and I ended up with a single male, but I did manage to get The...
