New nyererei

Post by tinker477 » Sun Aug 12, 2012 1:20 pm

I grabbed an amazing group of nyererei yesterday for a killer price. It consisted of one huge male (who wasnt showing the best color when I picked him up) & 4 females I had already had an amazingly gorgeous male I had picked up months ago from a breeder (hoarder lol ) who I had to beg just to get the male and he wouldnt let me buy any females so when the oppurtunity arose to get this group and they were from the same area I jumped on it. I was told the females have all spawned before. The male that came with the group is now presenting nice coloration but cant even hold a candle to the male I already had who is a little bit smaller I currently have both males and the 4 females in a 75g loaded with rocks and territories but was considering removing the male that came with the group to better my ratio. I would obviously prefer to use the much prettier male to spawn with but would appreciate any suggestions ayone could give to increase my chances of being successful thank you all in advance for your replies as I am a new member and am excited by everyones combined experience and expertise. I feel I am very informed and know what I am doing but am always ready and willing to learn more

I just got my first group of nyererei (Ruti island) a couple weeks ago. even at 1.5 " one of the males shows a lot of red and yellow when he is protecting his rocks. I've raised many Tanganyikans over the years and I'm exited to learn the ins and outs of these Victorians.

These are my first Vics......but I already have plans for some others, I,d like some Blue bar and some zebras. This is one of the Ruti Islund Pundamilia.ImageThey live with my kigoma cyprichromis for now, but 2 150 gallon Vic tanks are coming soon.Image

Send a PM when you are ready. the ones being held now will be ready in mid fall, or I have 30 ready now at an inch long.
