    Borellii sexing.

    I would say that they are two males as well. I am breeding them myself and find that the females are about 1/3 the size of the males and look completely different. Here's a link to a video of mine that shows a female with her fry. Notice the dark band through the eye, and a shorter dorsal...

    A question about Black Rams commercial names

    I agree with MacZ. You can call it whatever you would like. Even more, MacZ's recommendation is a good one. You don't know what you have until you've been breeding from it and see the offspring. Only then do you know what you have. But to answer your last question. I wouldn't call it a...

    A question about Black Rams commercial names

    You have a very intriguing question. I see them as "Dark Rams", "Dark Knight Rams", Black Rams, Midnight Rams, Blue-Black Rams and there's probably quite a few out there. I believe that the Rams that we are seeing are resultant of many people crossing their rams from the fixed Black ram strain...

    Fungus and eggs

    Just my opinion, but it does not look like fungus to me. I could be wrong, but the stuff you are describing in the tank and in the photos is more like a type of algae which is in itself not going to be causing eggs to go white. I would suspect that the white eggs may be from an entirely...

    Sexing German Blue

    Hi. Nice photos to work with, so thanks for sending those. In the black spot area, it's obvious missing a lot of the blueish iridescent spots that are all over the body. This also suggests a male. The females tend to have spots evenly distributed through this area while the males do not...

    Welcome to the group. I am impressed with your photo and can't believe how quickly they spawned after you got them. That is a nice "family" you have there. I have one male Krib (Pelvicachromis pulcher) but no female. He is pretty aggressive with other fish in my tank. With a spawning pair, I...

    possible spawn?

    I wouldn't be too hasty to assume that, but IMO the fish first has to have a suitable home. I suspect that the cave building is the first step.
