Re: Starting a fishroom

I've always liked pictus, great fish when kept in a group, and yours look really healthy. If it were me, Id remove about 50% of the large caves to make much more room for them to swim and then add a couple of branches to the tank to make it a little more natural.
Great tank and project.

Re: Tatia gyrina?

Any thoughts on breeding these? Is it the same as other Tatia such as T intermedia?

Re: Tatia gyrina?

Hi,

Mine are quite different, which I think means that they are adult colouration, is that correct?

They are more orange than you see in the picture and I think are 2 male and 3 female.

Re: Ecology of Trachelyichthys exilis

Thank you for posting this, very interesting reading. I have 6 that Ive been keeping for a few months now and they have settled in nicely. Interesting that they reference that eat small fish in the wild. I can say that, at least in my tank, they dont! I have a couple guppies in there for dither fish...

Re: Which Auchenipterids are being kept by PC members?

Hello,

I thought that I would resurrect this topic as I am now keeping 3 sp.
1. Tatia intermedia. Breeding group, many spawns
2. Tatia gyrina New group 5 (2M, 3F)
3. Trachelyichthys exilis New group (2M, 4F)

Any input on breeding the gyrina or T.exilis?

Thanks

Re: Panda-ish Corydoras, but which one?

Im not expert, but they look closest to Panda to me by the faint markings. They don't have any trace of the saddle that cw051 would have that I can see.

Cool looking fish either way!

Correct ID

Hello,

I dont claim to be an expert, but when I look at this picture, I think that we have the male/female reversed:

Looks to me like the male is on the left?
Can anyone comment?
Thanks

Tatia Intermedia Hatch rates

Hi all, I have a group of 5 T. Intermedia which look to me like 2 males and 3 females. Over the last 12-18months I have had mixed success raising the fry. I had good success in the first 3-4 spawning, but in the last 6 months have raised almost none from 5-6 different spawns as they would either all...

Re: Tatia intermidia fry

Congratulations on getting to the stage of having fry that have hatched. I have raised a couple of batches of these and they are fun! If it were me I would leave the egg mass in there for a couple more days and they will become free swimming and at that stage I would remove any remnants of the eggs....

Re: Orinocodoras eigenmanni?

Can I ask how you removed this? Did you use a scalpel to cut it out?
Great surgery by the way!

Re: T. Intermedia woodcats

I feed heavily with frozen Blood worms, NLS cichlid pellets, Freeze dried tubiflex worms etc, and you will see the females fill with eggs. I also observe more chasing between my group and then start with water changes. I change about 20-25% per day for about 1 week and then spawning usually occurs. ...

Re: T. Intermedia woodcats

Great looking fish. I have had about 6 batches of lots of eggs from mine in the last 12 months and they are really fun. I have sold a bunch locally and have around 30 fry at the moment in a 20G long and feeding time is truly a frenzy. Good luck with them.
