L75 pair

Post by stuby » Sun Mar 19, 2017 2:10 am

I decided to move my pair of L75's to another tank in a attempt to get them to breed. In the process I took some pictures and thought I would share them...... hope you enjoy!

They look pretty big. How large are they?

Cheers, Eric

Male is about 8" and female 7" TL........ I've had them for years and believe they are full grown. My L301 pair are at least 1" bigger than this L75 pair are.

Thank you for the kind words.
Pictures 1/4 is the female and 2/3 is the male..... I feed a mix of pellet and stick foods mostly. I get some from a place called kensfish.com..... I get from there 5 stick blend, tropical sticks, Omega One sinking Cichlid and Marine Pellets, also New Life Spectrum Thera + A and I make a couple different home made stick foods as well. I feed vegies (zucchini mostly) and some frozen foods about every couple weeks or so. I have a couple cave sizes for them..... if I remember right one is 3" x 3.25" x 12" another is around 3.25" x 3.5" x 12" or so plus I have a Oak cave for them that is 3" x 9". I have had a couple trappings in the past with the L301's but never got eggs from them...... I am hoping now that each pair has a tank I will be able to get them going but time will tell.
