Scriptaphyosemion geryi WC

A few pics of wild Scriptaphyosemion geryi. Currently ~1.25 inches - should be quite nice when full grown at ~2 inches.

Male - nice specimen- part of the caudal fin was missing and is now growing back.

Females - neat looking in their own way.


I find the ideal water temperature seems to be 72F - any higher they start to hang near the surface as if in need of extra oxygen, any lower they start to hover over the heater and become inactive. At 72F they are actively swimming about feeding well. Thanks to Jeff for sending the nice specimens. (This thread should probably be in "African Tankmates" - as the java moss isn't really biotope correct. )

I am Hanzle from Holland and keep apistoos for 40 years. Had my own aquarium shop from 1984 till 1988. Always s great fan from apistoos and hyphessobrycon which is s great combination in a Community Aquarium. Perhaps.....in the near future I start breeding apistoos again. Have a 400 liters Community aquarium for hyphessobrycon wadai and apistogramma biteaniata.
I want to get a 55 gallon slightly planted tank with many caves and I am thinking of getting 2 electric blue acaras, 3 blue rams, a apistogramma, 3 angelfish, and some corrydoras. Will that work if I keep the temperature at about and 80 or less?
I have kept fish for quite a long time but never cichlids. I want to find out more about them.
my Hongsloi, keep eating their eggs, any help greatly appreciated

Hi Fred, do you have any apistos for sale? I'm looking for Apistogramma trifasciata. I'm about an hour and a half from Mtl.
