Re: I'm back, after a very looooong time ...

I was thinking like that just a few years ago - being very wrong. behaving like CA is just a few km2 and that all cichlids have the same water parameters and sometime even mixing fishes from panama and mexico and wondering what is wrong? :?

Re: Nourissati and Pasionis Tank

thanks for the nice compliments on the fish. i'll try to get some better picures later. The Nourissati eggs unfortunately did not turn into fry, Some of the eggs gradually disappered, turned white, then they were all gone. The pair seemed to try to start over,then the male proceeded to trash the fe...

Re: C. nanoluteus

Be carefull if you intend to read the above combination as an advise for a tank. T sieboldi and A bussingi are both far to agressive for C nanoluteus, and I think A kanna as well Better keep C nanoluteus without cichlids, or very peacefull ones - such as Geophagus crassilabris (peacefull, apart fro...

Re: ExCichlasoma atromaculatum

mine 8 cm retroculus decimated in a month 30 full grown axelrodi and 20 full grown rhodostomus :( now I was clever and when moved them I firstly removed from the new tank the hasemania and stellatus. Rapps recently got a batch of atros, I decided those were more interesting to me than the cf. ornatu...

Re: For a 55g, which is the smallest Geo?

Re: For a 55g, which is the smallest Geo?

I found out that the smaller the Geo the more aggressive it is. off course when spawning. parnaibae are very interesting fish to observe and more unusual in the hobby than taeniopareius. taeniopareius are more active, and males are bigger than males of paranibae.

Re: Retroculus xinguensis - Spawning

great story! congrats!

I also noticed that Retroculus should be housed alone... and Geophagus are in my opinion one of the worst companions.

keep the great work!!
