Re: Ancistrus Claro LDA08 gender identification

Hi, to me they all look to be males. One more dominant/older then the other two.

Re: Ancistrus sp. L255 spawned!!

The fish have spawned for the third time :d This time the male could hold on to his eggs for the full 6 day's. The raft of eggs held on to the roof of the cave just by one or two eggs. The male holding the raft up to the roof with his mouth while fanning them with his fins. It was quite a remarkable...

Re: Ancistrus sp. L255 spawned!!

I see, thanks! May I know what do you feed them and where did you get the cave from? I feed all my fish Repashy. The cave I have had for a long time, don't know where it came from. But you can find this type of cave quite easy I think. For a while now I buy all my caves from nature2aqua, based in G...

Re: Ancistrus sp. L255 spawned!!

awesome! are you using blackwater and how often and how much do you change your water? cheers! I use normal tapwater (Ph 7 Kh 3 conductivity around 300 microsiemens), no rain or osmoses water. Due to my job I try to do as many water changes as I can. I try every 5-7 days and then change about 75%.

Re: Ancistrus sp. L255 spawned!!

Hatching day for the L255 eggs this morning :d

Note that the fry already show some colour even prior to hatching. Something I have noticed while breeding ranunculus type species.

Great move with the Sturisoma fry and really interesting to see that tactic worked.

Jools
It was a first for me too. I needed to let the single fry feel safe and I know from raising Sturisoma fry that they learn to feed from other siblings. So it was just worth a shot and it worked :-BD
