    Copella (?) id?

    Yes, I was imagining that you would take out the plants with the eggs on. If you have better opportunities later on it makes sense to wait, no hurry, but it would be an interesting project.

    Copella (?) id?

    From the Tom C website they look most like C. compta

    Copella (?) id?

    R Right, you could probably rear them in a plastic tub with floating plants and leaf litter, you would just need a small heater? I raised a few beckfords accidentally in a 40l tank I had set up for cichlid fry but then never used as they stayed with the parents. I had transferred some water...

    Copella (?) id?

    Thank you Darrel, I have tried getting to Tom C's web page on several occasions but the links I found never worked. The one you sent just now does work, so many thanks, I will have a good look. Interesting about the aggression issues, I thought they would be relatively peaceful, will have to...

    Copella (?) id?

    Yes I read something about that, just in case you will have to see if yours will breed, they seem to have very suitable conditions and food.....

    Copella (?) id?

    Those are really nice fish. I would like to get some if possible.

    Copella (?) id?

    Yes, I believe the N. eques are much slower, the beckfords are fast, and in a big tank, which doesn’t help.

    Copella (?) id?

    Yes, you are right I should let them settle down a few days then try some more photos. They are like the pencil fish, difficult to get good shots. I looked at both those species you mention as well, some photos seem to match, especially compta I think, but I don’t feel at all sure.

    Copella (?) id?

    I got these today, sold as “Copeina” but I think they are Copella? Can anyone please identify them for me from these not very good photos? The red above the eye is quite noticeable.

    Laetacara araguaiae pair or harem breeders ?

    Actually they may all be OK in your tank, as it has lots of plants and driftwood. I also started with four juveniles, the two biggest and more colourful were the first to form a pair, displaying to each other but with some chasing as well (at first I thought they might be two males). As they...

    Laetacara araguaiae pair or harem breeders ?

    Definitely monogamous. I have 2 pairs and they each have their own territory in a large tank (160 x 60 cm footprint). They breed regularly, the two pairs display and flare at eachother and very occasionally fight, nothing too serious, but it is probably not a good idea to have more than one...

    What have I got?

    Yes, thanks I am enjoying them, they are very confident especially considering they are wild caught. the cacatuoides and agassizi have established their own territories, the smaller fish get chased by both, but luckily the tank is quite large with plenty of hiding places. However its harder to...

    What have I got?

    That is what I was thinking... I don't really mind what species I have, it is my first time with Apistos, but I am now unsure what the other fish I have are. The shop already made one mistake. They had told me initially they were getting a few species in. Then they said that only the...

    What have I got?

    I was sold this about 3 weeks ago as A. macmasteri, wild from Colombia. He has grown and colored up since I got him. Doesn't it look more like A. cacatuoides??

    Which Apistogramma?

    Yes I was thinking that about the guppies last night...also I am getting nervous, I don’t think I’ll order the Apistos just yet, but I might risk the pencilfish as it may be very hard to get them again. I actually think the macmasteri could be around for a while since they are in a local fish...
