Hi,

The red moliro that were already sold stood here for a while and now I decided to keep them. Once the tank as been dismounted I had to put them in the chaitikas tank... It´s way to crowded and I really need to took out some chaitikas...

Image

Image

The red moliro are doing just fine and the colors are great...

Diogo

Hi,

With 48 fishes in the aquarium I had to put another canister - I decided for the Eheim 2260.
Now I have 8800 l/h of filtration.

very nice

superb photos!

I wouldn't worry about the hybridization....if they mix....who cares as long as the resulting fry are not distributed and/or allowed to multiply.

It makes a wonderful display the mix of fish. Just destroy any fry they make....give them to someone for feeders.

Hi,

Here are 2 photos of the red moliro males still in great shape. They will come out in the beginnig of July.

Image

Image

One of the biggest red rainbow (with almost 7 cm). The dominant that already defies the moliro males.

And a really small one with an amazing color.

How many litres is this Tank? Do you sell fish? It seems like you have a lot of fish traffic in this tank.
