Re: Cyphrichromis Leptosoma Breeding?

Not sure I understand, do you have only two males? And are they two different types? It sounds like you'r saying you have one Cyp Leptosoma "Utinta", and one Cyp. sp Jumbo "tri-colour". What type of Cyprichromis are the females? I have 2 males and 7 females. The leptosoma names are color variants. ...

Re: Aggressive Male foai

They are in a 4ft by 1.5 ft by 1.5ft. 1m 2f. Tank is way too small and the number of fish too little. They need at least a 6' tank. The male will most likely kill the females in such a small space before he kills himself crashing into the end of the tank. I would suggest either getting a bigger tan...

Re: Benthochromis horii eggs, first try at artificial incuba

Congratulations, I must admit, I thought both eggs were unfertilized when I saw the pic. Hopefully you get a free swimmer from the egg.

Re: Benthochromis horii eggs, first try at artificial incuba

Those eggs don't look like they have been fertilized. My friend here in Toronto has just succesfully spawned his Benthos, I'll see if I can get him to come on here.

Re: location needed...where is Linangu?

The Linangu does look like a Moliro Foai, lots of blue and green, very nice . I am a big fan of the coppers myself and that Kabogo is beautifull (I think I remember seeing the larger pic years ago). I made a mistake when I said that I had kept Karilani Furcifers myself. I actually bought juvies as K...

Re: location needed...where is Linangu?

Not sure I know how to tag it Sid. Glad it helped, when I get a minute I'll dig out my Aqualog Tropheus book and see if it explains where exactlty Linangu is. If I remember corectly, it is close to Nangu. Any pics of the Linangu Foai? I have never heard of it myself. I have a group of Linangu Trophe...

Re: Thank you FMueller and SCORE!!!

If you are not going with a sump setup, I would use two Eheim 2262 canisters on such a tank. I have one 2262, two 2217s and an emperor 400 on a 210g. I am going to switch the two 2217s with a 2262 soon. And just something to keep in mind, Cyps are the natural diet of Frontosas, so you might want to ...

Re: Returning to the hobby, need input

A 36" tank is way to small to house Melanogenys. I would reccomend a minimum 60" tank. You are right in thinking that your tank is also to small to house cyps, and I personally would not try keeping Gobies in such a small tank, I have seen what type of agression they can display even as a mated pair...

Re: single lone petrochromis behavior

I keep a single male Petro sp. yellow Mtoto in each of two, 5' 120g Tropheus tanks. They pretty much behave like the Trophs without getting into the fights.

Re: Id on foai/furcifer

Hard to tell from those pics. Possibly Moliro? You would be better off asking in the featherfin section.

Re: Will 2 kinds of Cyprichromis cross breed in a tank?

I am keeping microlepidotus and pavo together with no signs of crossbreeding.
I still won't try to save fry from the tank just in case. The pavo seem to spawn in little craters in the sand whereas the micros are open water spawners.

Re: My tank (Cyprichromis and Enantiopus melanogenys Kilesa)

Nice looking micros you have there. Curious as to how the kitumbas and the Kilesas get along, and what about cross breeding between the two types of cyps?
Have you observed any?

Re: Tropheus tankmates

The Trophs should be active all over the tank including the bottom. I have never tried Callochromis with them, but I would if I felt the tank needed something else.
