thanks everyone for the compliments :D I'd say right now he's roughly 8-9" SL. the pinkish color just behind the gills is usually much brighter...I got those pics right after I turned the lights on so he was still "waking up" :lol:

trimac pics

imo, bloat in New World's (CA's particularly) is caused more by overfeeding and even more importantly water quality. not only keeping the water clean but making sure it is well oxygenated. a lot of the species reported to be susceptible to bloat (haitiensis, beani, istlanum, a couple Herichthys) are...

Have you tried different substrates with them? How much room do you leave at the top for air? couple inches? The tank my bichirs have always been in is always filled as much as I'd fill any other tank which is usually up to the black frame at the top of the tank. As for substrate, they've always be...

thanks for finding this out for me, I really appreciate it. :)

is there any significant difference between this fish and the white labridens/tamul labridens of the tamasopo river, or are they pretty much the same?

thanks again for all your help. :)

ok, here's what I've read about the 2 and also these are things I've noticed when comparing pictures from people who have true carpintis and cyanoguttatus. carpintis doesn't have as many spots, but the spots are noticeably larger. coloration depends on race. some races of this species have green spo...

thanks for all the info you've been able to provide so far. I will try to get more precise data about where they were collected next time I speak with Rusty. now, when you mention the "undescribed white labridens", that's the one known in the hobby as H. labridens 'tamul' isn't it? at least, that's ...

I did find This article by Eddie Martin that detailed a collecting trip taken by a small group of guys, Rusty included, in July of last year In th...

and everyone seems to have difficulty clearly defining what makes a carpintis and what makes a cyanogutattum
this is due in large part to the number of hybrids on the market. :)

Personally, I think you'd see more aggression from robertsoni to robertsoni. I have a 3+ yr. old rob that I kept for a long time in my 75 with firemouths and a gold aureum among others. now the same rob is in my 150 with 4 smaller robs and several Thorichthys sp. 'Mixteco Gold'. Granted the mixteco ...

I have them in a 20 us gal with a pair of Black convicts, will that be to big of a problem seeing that it seems that the Honduran are less aggressive? Aside from cross-breeding, if the black convicts start breeding the Hondurans may get badly bullied or even killed. They are far less aggressive tha...
