    Thank you Mike. I google amd looked around and saw nothing, so I figured I would ask just in case.

    Kribs sex ratio determination?

    Hi, I have a new spawn of kribs and was wondering if there are environmental sex determination factors I shluld be aware of, as in some apistos.

    Guppies as dither fish

    I'll say though that guppies are quick swimmers and certainly capable of eating fry. Apistos are good at guarding their young so if you happen to have aggressive guppies at most you'll end up losing a handful. But the guppies may lose some fins in the process. Much more frequently my choice has...

    Guppies as dither fish

    Guppy Fry are tender and delicious snack for everyone, even usually their parents. I've never had trouble with guppies in my cacatuoides tanks. I don't think they make a diference in breeding behaviors or stress levels, but there's been no trouble.

    A. baenschi behavior question

    Mike, how choosy are they with each other? Does interbreeding occur within the group? I ask because retailers are sometimes not great about identification, especially with young fish. So if I'm picking up home bred nijesseni group fish I want to know if it's possible they could have been panduro...

    How do I clear new threads?

    Never mind, the culprit appears to be this post: https://apistogramma.com/forum/threads/duplicate-sorry-trying-to-delete.23280/

    How do I clear new threads?

    I like to rely on the "New" flags on forums to let me see where new threads are so i can read them. It seems no matter how far back I go on the forums, clicking on every unread thread, there's no way I can get the "new" alert to go away on the main forum page. Am I really going to have to go...

    Apistogramma Cacatuoides Weird Behavior?

    Do you actually know the ages of the fish? If not, how long have you had them? "it's been 3-4 weeks since" - Are the fry still in with the female? and are the fry healthy in the same water? Was the male acting abnormally at all before he died? "water was consistent" - What parameters did you...

    Spawning while rearing?

    Thank you, Mike. It took all morning, because planted tank with coarse gravel (holy isht, those suckers can hide) but I moved (~40) fry to a bare 20 gallon so they can have room to grow. I really would have liked to wait, but the bio-load was already taxing the little filter on the other tank...

    Spawning while rearing?

    I have a young pair of cacatuoides with 3 week old fry that they have been tending quite well. The pair has started flirting again and I'm concerned if they may become aggressive with the fry should they spawn again before I can set up a grow out tank to move them to. Is tbis a legit concern or...
