    exLamprologus ornatipinnis

    The ornatapinnis in Australia are no where as colourful as yours no yellow on the head.These appear not to allow multiple generations to grow up together unlike many other shellies,each batch has to be harvested Nice photos

    peat moss

    As a killi keeper I always assumed boiling the peat helped saturate it so it doesnt float all over he place when put in containers for the fish to spawn in.

    Blue ram Wigglers!

    They are very senstive to poor water quality so the bigger and more established the tank the better they will go. Sqeezing a well established sponge filter into their tank releases lots of tiny bugs for them to eat if you havent got live culture

    Apistoramma sp 'Apache' with Panda cory's ?

    From what Ive read C panda comes from the Rio Ucayali system of Peru which has an unusually high pH at 7.7.These fish seem very tolerant but maybe a softer water cory might be better.

    S. tinanti LFS has...

    I have 5 tinantis(6-7cm) in a 3 ft tank with a few rainbows;3males and 2 females by the look (females are smaller) They scrap a bit but are not murderous and have paired up.Im not sure what will happen when fry arrive but for most cichlids Im betting they will get much more aggro

    Now this is more like it!

    If youve been a member of this forum for long you will soon get the axiom "community tanks are not breeding tanks" drummed into your psyche. Enjoy the activity but dont expect young fish to become part of it or any financial bonus.If you get a 3ft speices tank with a few dithers into it then...

    Apistogramma Cacatuoides Fry

    Lovely male.You have to be aware these triple red and other selectively bred Caccas dont breed true and you will get all sorts of fin colouration(most really nice but different).Thats what Ive found with caccas and aggas of this type anyway

    Red Forest jewel ID

    Ive always been abit confused about all the different types of jewel cichlids.This one has been bred consisently by a breeder for 10-12 years and is sold as H.lifalilli but according to the Sydnet cichlid group "at least six species, namely, H. guttatus (bimaculatus), H. lifalilli, H. cristatus...

    Dario Dario w/ Cacatuoides

    I chucked a couple of male Dario dario(that had murdered their females) into a raising tank with 25-30 forktail blue eyes (ravenous by any measure)and I was surprised that they have done well.I agree they look fabulous in a dark well planted tank but I think they are tougher than we might imagine
