Another Orange Chromide Video - I Love This Species!!

Post by Jim Cumming » Thu Dec 06, 2012 1:27 pm

I'm pretty fond of this little gem of a cichlid, as you can tell from me posting "several" videos of their "goings on". Here's another illustrating the tender and dedicated care that they display with their young. Just after I took the video, I syphoned out most of the fry to rear away from their parents - about 100 or so.

Here's an update on the Orange chromide wrigglers that I syphoned out a ways back. These young Etroplus maculatus fry have been free swimming for about two weeks now. They are being raised on baby brine shrimp in brackish water since the parent's tank is brackish too. I am about to supplement their diet with finely powdered dry food. They seem to be feeding well. and putting on reasonable growth.At this stage they resemble the fry of Paretroplus to which they are closely related.
