    Black mosquito larvae

    Yes, UHT is a brand. They are the only black mosquito lavae that I can find to purchase. I have collected mosquito larvae but was looking for a more consistent source.

    Black mosquito larvae

    Does anyone have any experience feeding black mosquito larvae from UHT?

    Fish colors

    Not all the fish lose their color over the same time period. In some it has taken several generations while others lose colors significantly in F1. Interesting information on color vs iridescence.

    Fish colors

    I manage generations by trying to pick the best looking parents as breeders. Since almost all the fish I have were collected by me there are not a lot of fish to enrich the gene pool. But this does not seem to be genetic since the color changes occur fairly quickly. I think it is environmental...

    Fish colors

    When fish are collected in the wild their colors are often extraordinary. After a few generations in the home aquarium these colors fade. Feeding diverse foods has not really helped, at least in my tanks. Does anyone have a successful way of maintaining the wild colors?

    Some species will not be exported from Colombia for a while.

    Most of my tanks are steel framed. I like the look.

    İnformation about gender ?

    I remember those days. Hunting through the assorted dwarf cichlid tanks for something unusual.

    Back to Peru

    Continuing my story. The last picture was of a broad and shallow stream where we caught I believe cacatuoides. Also caught were some rivulus, cories and broca. Along the bank we saw trees with lots of oropendola nests. In this small stream we found a fish that I'm not certain of it's identity...

    Back to Peru

    Back from an extended stay in Peru. This trip was unique in that we experienced things that I had not experienced in years of collecting. One of our party was stung by a stingray, one stepped on an electric eel and one was bitten by a piranha. Then we all came down with COVID thus extending my...

    Back to Peru

    If all goes well, which may be expecting a lot these days, I am returning to Peru on Friday. I have not been to northern Peru to collect for many years. The plan this time is to collect the drainage of the Mazan and Napo rivers. Will be on the river about a week then hopefully back home. Always...

    Here is another one

    You are correct. This was an off spring from some T-bars I collected in Peru. It's body was nearly white and was completely different from the other fish. I seperated him into his own tank after which, of course, he jumped out and died.

    Here is another one

    Ok. I know which one this is but it is an unusual presentation.
