    New collecting reports

    Two wonderful reports. The photos are remarkable. Your report of the chiggers reminds me of when I was collecting in Venezuela and took a break from Apisto collecting and went to the Gran Sabana to collect killifish. There we experienced a biting gnat called jejen or La Plaga. Never have I...

    Any reason I shouldn't feed Northfin Betta Bits, and other questions.

    I have had some success with Hikari Vibra Bites and freeze dried tubifex. Also luck with Repashy Bottom Scratcher. However, the only apistos that will eat these are my erythrura. None of the others are interested.

    Erythrura color forms

    Does anyone know if the different color forms of A. erythrura breed true? I have collected 3 forms. The red caudal, blue caudal, and the colorless caudal. Since they are collected in the same area and all the females look alike I have not been able to set up reliable pairs of each form.

    Smallest tank size

    Yes I remember Fontaine. Only source of Apistos when I started out. Even though it is not a perfect size, I have used 5.5 gal aquariums for several different apistos and they successfully spawned. A little crowding seems to spread out the aggression.

    Vacation Care

    I have left my fish for 10 days without a problem. Two weeks is pushing things. Having someone else feed your fish often turns out bad.

    Sexing A erythrura

    Not all A. erythrura have red caudals. Some have a faint blue and others have colorless caudals. I have collected all three types from the wild.

    Need Solutions for powering multiple sponge filters in (3) tanks

    You might check Jehmco.com if you haven't already. Like Mike I use a linear piston pump and have had many years of quiet trouble free service. They also have some serious diaphragm pumps for smaller setups.

    7 day holiday, what to do?

    If only for seven days the fish will be fine without food. Much more dangerous letting someone else feed them.

    Brine shrimp cultures

    Several people in this area do this and they claim a higher hatch rate and fewer culture crashes. I had not heard of it before.

    Brine shrimp cultures

    Does anyone add a drop or two of chlorine bleach to a liter of their bbs culture?
