    Nannostomus beckfordi and apisto fry

    mine predate. even though it's a deep tank, they hang right at the bottom, usually picking off cory feeding flotsam. the girls don't give them much of a chance though, feisty mamas that they are. i've read (on this forum, of course!) that the trifasciatus are a more sedate tank mate, no doubt...

    spotted my first juvie - yea! must be first generation: about 2cm. just not quick enough with the camera for the peek-a-boos betwixt the leaves, dang it. still trying to hone my photography skills, but moving subjects in low lighting with a bow front is seriously stumping me! none of the various...

No reproach intended but given the mts (;)) figured u might find it useful - took me a wee while to stumble across that nugget somewhere amidst this minefield of wonders.

    Apisto biotope

    Tnx for the tip. I was hoping to catch daddy cac swimming through a sun beam in the late afternoon. Their colours are truly at their most vibrant in sunlight, but I don't know how to overcome the reflection factor with the curved glass. Cheers and happy apisto-keeping :-)

    Apisto biotope

    How do u get such gd pics w ur bow front? I always hav awful reflections that obscure the subjects n if I close the curtains n don't use flash (to avoid reflection) it's too underexposed coz I use low lighting in my tank. Any ideas? One of the moderators asked for photos n my attempts so far...

    Thanks for the reply and for sharing your experience. You are right that a community tank is not a breeding tank and I certainly wouldn't recommend a community set up for those with only breeding in mind. I'm encouraged to hear that a small handful of your fry have made it to the juvenile stage...

    Thanks for the welcome and congrats, Josh. My avatar is in fact a poor attempt at capturing my set up in picture but due to my technical incompetence it's been squashed sideways, making it look taller than it is (it is indeed a tall, bow-fronted corner aquarium at 60cm in height, 120cm across...
