Re: Tropheus In Their Natural Habitat available!

Finally Ad has written a book about Tropheus and it is everything it promises. There is so much information available that you need to read it at least twice to make sure you did not miss anything.

Re: Sexing Eretmodus cyanostictus Kasanga

Eretmodus will share in care of the eggs. This could be the male doing his turn.

If you breed Tropheus for pleasure then why strip? You miss most of the best part of keeping them, the mothers looking after the young.

If doing it for money, the reasons for stripping are clear.

All the best James

Re: Tropheus breeding and raising at "PISCES" farm

Matt, as a cichlid keeper I am sure you are familiar with Ad Konings and his books. His view on stripping and artificially hatching eggs matches more the attitude of the North American cichlid keepers that I know.

Re: Tropheus breeding and raising at "PISCES" farm

I have used cedar root for years without any problems. Just soak it properly for a couple of week and brush it clean.
