Re: Imported as Ancistrus bodenhameri from Petra Aqua. Now spawned!

They hatched! Six days from eggs to hatching (no more than 6.5 days, depending on when eggs were laid, since eggs weren't there at 7am last Thursday but were there by 9pm that evening). I'd share pics of fry, but dad is doing his darnedest to block my camera view. Edit. Moved dad's cave for easier v...

Re: Starting a fishroom

Sadly, I've never had C141. For corys I've only ever had habrosus and paleatus, though I make sure to always keep some space open in the event I stumble upon some knaacki, C150, C141, or other beautiful spotty species. Sorry, I must have been confusing you with someone who used to live down by me i...

I know the odds are low, but do you have the C141 still? It's been several years.

Re: New group of l397

Hi Seb,

I agree those genital papillae look female on both fish. But dang, what's with the odontodes on that one "female?"

Good luck,

Re: Imported as Ancistrus bodenhameri from Petra Aqua. Now spawned!

On a related note, should Ancistrus martini have a common name of cucuta pleco? Maybe Martin's bristlenose and move cucuta to A. sp. cucuta? Asking before doing as not sure of background. Hi Jools and Shane, Jools, those common names seem reasonable. I'm looking at maps to compare the location of C...

Re: Imported as Ancistrus bodenhameri from Petra Aqua. Now spawned!

This morning I found this one egg on the rim of the cave, and by tonight it was kicked out.

As a precaution, I moved the loose egg and the whole cave (with dad and eggs inside) into a fry basket. Let's see how that goes.

Thanks Jools and Shane. I've created Ancistrus sp(8). I'll add text for its backstory later today when I'm on a computer.

Re: What to do with the "Glo Cory"?

Why not just add it as a color variant of the natural species, like albino aeneus or schulze black? ... and I'd suggest one entry per real species, with all color variations lumped in together. Do we have special entries for albino Corydoras? As far as I know not. What would be different for these t...

Re: Imported as Ancistrus bodenhameri from Petra Aqua. Now spawned!

They were successful! Yay! \:d/ I see loose eggs on the floor of the cave, so this first spawn must have been a little chaotic, but I'll chalk it up to a win. Hopefully the eggs are fertilized and develop well. :YMPRAY: I sure wish I could know what these are. I emailed Petra Aqua again today. This ...

Re: Imported as Ancistrus bodenhameri from Petra Aqua in the Czech Republic

For the first time since I got these, the male is trapping a female overnight. Fingers crossed!

The male is still only about 5cm SL. For scale, the cave they're in is one of the smallest caves sold by Plecocaves.com.

Re: Loricariids that would thrive in similar water temperatures as scleromystax barbatus?

Hi Quandale,

There are very few Loricariids from that area that area:

Unfortunately, essentially none of these are in the hobby on a regular basis.
