    Community tank breeding.

    I've somehow manages to raise up a good number of Apistogramma ortegai in a community tank containing cardinals, gold laser cories etc. The parents did an exemplary job keeping the other fish at bay. It IS possible, but I wouldn't recommend it.

    Cacatuoides or cf. cacatuoides?

    I purchased these fish as Apistogramma cacatuoides Rio Nanay. Are they true cacs or a closely related form? Dig the blue lips on the male!

    Combining fry

    I have newly free-swimming Anomalochromis thomasi fry in a community tank & Laetacara araguaiae young of about the same age in a species tank along with their parents. If I introduce some of the thomasi babies into the Laetacara tank, would they be accepted by the adults or be rejected?

    Pelvicachromis silviae spawn

    My P. silviae finally presented me with a spawn after 8 months of waiting for them to get down to business. A very beautiful species, I'm really enjoying keeping them.

    Agassizii or Tefe'?

    Picked up a pair of these at an LFS a few weeks back. They were very small when I first purchased them & I assumed that they were agassizii, but lately the male has started to look Tefe'-ish to me.

    Fry doing somersaults.

    I've noticed that after feeding my Dicrossus maculatus fry BBS one or two of them start swimming erratically in circles, eventually settling on the bottom & breathing heavily. I assume they eventually recover since I've never seen a corpse. I've had this experience with very small anabantoid fry...

    Female sp. Steel Blue & fry

    I know they're supposedly hybrids, but I have Neanderthal DNA; I guess that makes me a hybrid too.

    Early Christmas gift!

    Woke up on 12/15 to find my female Dicrossus maculatus guarding her first spawn on top of an Anubias leaf. The eggs hatched out on 12/18. Since then she's been moving the larvae to various Anubias leaves, but today she placed them on an oak leaf right near the front glass. Been looking forward...

    Agassizii "Flamenco?

    Picked up some juvies at an LFS. They were only labelled "agassizi" (which usually means sp. Steel Blue) & they grew into these beauties. Are they the Flamenco/RioTigre morph?

    Hello from Brooklyn!

    Hi, my name is Scott & I've been a fishkeeper for many years. I had one community tank & a 5.5 gallon quarantine tank & was content with that until a pair of Laetacara curviceps spawned in my quarantine tank a day after they were introduced. Since then I've kept & bred various South American &...
