PostSubject: Fish I'm working with DUW!   Sat Jan 05, 2008 3:30 am

Hey everybody, I finally got some good pics of a couple of the species I am or will be breeding in the near future for the shop so here ya go...

First we have Betta coccina. Wild type bettas are without a doubt one of my favorite groups of fish to work with and coccina is a great species to get into wild types with. They stay small, are colorful and are not difficult to keep and breed. I just moved my pair into a 10 gallon tank and currently have no fry growing out but will soon. These guys will easily breed in tanks as small as a 2.5 gallon




Next we have the blue acara. We have several dozen wild caught and f1 adults and will likely be letting many of them pair up and selling a few off and hopefully producing MANY fry!



I also really like Geophagine cichlids and as such these guys make me more than a little happy...






And finally here are a couple of other assorted fish I'm playing with...





More to come...hopefully soon cheers

The buffalohead did come from KYiana...I'm looking for more if you know of any. I would also like to get some tinanti, they are great fish.

yeah when i noticed that you had some buffalos that was a first time in a long time when i have seen them around, the only place i can think of is kyiana, i dont think i have seen any tinanti before around, i had a colony of buffalos about 10years ago and i still miss them..

Well a bunch of oscars were put in that tank and the buffalohead is awol, i'm guessing eaten or killed. Looked in all the other tanks too and hes not there. We didn't get any in this week either. Sorry.

Its a pair of Dendrobates tinctorius (Cobalt) I had when I was messing with a lot of dart frogs...I will probably change it soon though (I'm thinking Betta macrostoma for a while...maybe a smiling beardie scratch)

Wes, I have and I highly recommend them...they are great little fish, I like them nearly as much as the shell dwelling Neolamp...not quite, but almost.

hey james i recieved a pair of fish today, they look alot like convicts but without the stripes and appear to be a gray looking fish with a bluish gray on the lower portion of their body, so i think i may have ended up wit a hybrid convict.. when they start to come out i will photo them and send it to you.. later dude.
