Hi all !!
If you`re in Europe...
One of Europes most interesting Fish Conventions...
Great presentations, beautyful fish.. and more!! (Often more than 500 tanks with Killies !!)
Click more for further Convention-Info..
I just got a surprice I`d never thought I would ever see..
Absolutely the most odd place for an Apisto-female to keep her larvae / fry.. (yet)!!
As we know, Apisto females like to relocate their offspring when they notice that they start hatching ..
.. and often then, where it is quite dark...
A nice SKS-weekend in Stockholm is coming soon.. 16-18 sept.
You are all very welcome to come and visit.. Free entrance !!
Special guests: Wim Suijker (NED) + Kiril Kardashev (BUL)
More info in this link..
I thought it was about time to put up this link once again .. a great lecture in English..from Dr. Uwe Römer ..for all who may have the interest.. (last+1st(?) time I think Peter in England put it up here..? )
Anyone here planning a new SouthAmerican Biotope Tank..??;)
I bought this wild Apistogramma spec. "Bolivia Gold" from Aquarium-Glaser in 2013..( maybe coming from the Puerto Maldonado-area???)..
I guess it is a A. luelingi-"type".... Unfortunately , I add my only pic of the "dad"/male (now dead) to my remaining 2 females (F1)..!!
I searched the web and found this interesting link concerning some of North American Killi-fishes..
Just wanted to share it.. even though it is/may not directly be comparable on/for Apistos..!!
I hope someone here can help me out... verify or explain..
Since I have some information(hearsay) about Glutaraldehyde-CH2(CH2CHO)2 ..existing in some chemical "cleaning"/washing-products or -mixes used inside large oiltankers( and in the shipping industry) ..
I am wondering what...
I found this interesting swedish pdf .. regarding Fe2+ and Fe3+...
Maybe some help for someone...in special-situations..!?
(Translation from Swedish is needed..)
I have been doing hobby-studies/-searching about the reason for high mortality when keeping Acestridium sp. - catfishes..(Fe in the...
Here you can get some info if you are interested in future European "Rescue-programs" planned/ soon "in process" for fishes in general!!
Presented by Fishbase Sweden , in Stockholm, October 2015. Only a few weeks ago..
A great basic lecture/draw from Brian Zimmerman, Curator of...
Found this when I was scanning Aquabid.com.... for you all in North America!!
Since I have Epiplatys lamottei ... I can assure you the these fishes will be a nice dither-fish in tanks longer
than 60-70cm and contain lots of plants..
If you have plants up to the surface+ some "moss clumps"(or...
I just want to show you one of my favorite Apisto Tank Mates.. - Nanoptopoma sp. !!
These small (2-3cm) creatures in these pics entered one of my tanks only 2 days ago..
I have been waiting for their arrival!!!:)
..since I have kept a close relative to them a couple of years ago..! (Nanoptopoma...
Hi all !!
I just want to report a small test I made since I had the opportunity (small killifishes available) ..
I am a member of a Killi fish association and got some Laimosemion-youngsters from a friend in our group..
2 small Laimosemion cladophorus (2cm in size) were put in a really dense...
Hi all ..
It might not be a real tank mate alternative, but for sure an odd South American Killi !!
Fishes of this genus are famous (infamous..) for being quite aggressive..
This old male lives in a tank with a female, but she often hides in the peat and plants..
I really like the size of his...
I can`t help to post this..!!
I have not yet kept Chromaphyosemion with Apistos,
but I sure wish to find a way to combine these two types
of fishes in a nice tank one day!!!
..and to all Killi people out there... keep your codes!!! (Some of them are not yet scientifically described...
