    spawned in hardwater

    my wild cacas have spawned in hard water- ph 7.6, hardness 268 ppm. not a huge batch but I cant really see them at the moment. For me this makes a lot of the online profiles misleading.

    my new tank etc.

    The tank is a walsted 'dirt tank' and I have cattalpa mulm floating about everywhere thanks to some corydoras. I say this to excuse its messyness, in my defence, the water quality is good. The two apistogramma are 'wild' (i hope) cacatuoides which have been there a few days, they are still...

    inka 50 fungus.

    I have no way of getting a decent photograph of this ailment but all i need is advice on a certain course of action. My inka 50 recently injured itself on a piece of wood and a fungal growth has appeared on the wound. Now this exact problem in the same tank has happened to a ctenopoma...

    could a dorsigera female adopt fry/eggs?

    I am giving away my dorsigera pair and for ease of collection I moved them into a holding tank. The guy had to wait a couple of days and in the meantime they have spawned in the bloody holding tank. Now I don't think that guy will want the eggs as he has a community tank and the fish won't be...

    I have 4 juvenile inka 50, one is thriving (male) and the other three (one female, the other two??) just wont eat BBS. I dont know what to do, i have tried cyclopeeze, and a very high protein dried food and they spit almost everything. The little ones look to be trying to find copepods in my...

    compatibility and bbs question

    I was recently billed heavily from my electricity company and need to shut down one of my tanks. I was wondering if in a very very complex 30 gallon, I could get away with a nannacara anomala male, a baenschi inka 50 male and maybe as well a cacatouides male. The anaomala is aggressive but...

    territorial anomala any tankmates?

    Hi I have an nannacara anomala male in a 15 gallon and he has gone all colonel kurtz on me. every time i try to add a tankmate he tries to kill them. so far hes killed a filter shrimp, three golden barbs and a betta female. I guess that black phantom tetra could deal with him but i already have...

I'm annoyed only because Ive been feeding them for so long (i didn't...

    fry behaviour of dorsigera

    hi, after my dorsigera failed to look after fry in a community tank (a community tank is not a breeding tank), I did some reading (dwarf cichlids-horst linke) and read that they were collected in water with a very low visability. The fry behaviour was described as chaotic and difficult for the...

This is all by the book except I just cant make out any fry, ive stared for an hour now and i need to get to college. Is there a possibility...

    what to do about my steel blue?

    Ok from what ive read on here and elsewhere, the sp steel blue could be a hybrid and the rate of female spawning is very low. I do however want this little guy to have some kind of company and although i would not breed them, Is there a female i could get (perhaps resticulosa or borelli) that he...
