Re: My Public Aquarium: exhibit blues - how to make them?

Are these orange/white colors a line bred color morph?

Re: Paleatus swimming weirdly, IBS issue ?

Yeah I have to agree. The spine does look deformed and I doubt you can do anything to make this fish well. :-(

Re: My woodcats finally spawned!!!

Congratulations! If they just spawned, you may not know yet if they are fertile. But infertile eggs will turn white over time. Even if yours do, don't throw them out until you're sure.

Yes separate the eggs in an egg tumbler or fry basket.

Good luck.

Re: Brochis Multiradiatus , health issue ?

I had the same thing happen to my multiradiatus. Lost them all. I suspect their large size requires more care than I'm used to giving for other corys.

I hope your remaining fish do well.

Their mood and color is profoundly affected by environmental and health factors. Healthy little fish you got there.

Re: L128 Sexing

Are all 3 pics the same fish? From the dorsal pic, I would have said male. But from the ventral pics, I'm inclined towards female. Sorry, not very helpful.

Re: What Corydoras are these?

I agree on the latter two. Can you get better pics of the first? Could be leopardus, which has smaller marks than C102.

Re: ID my plec

I've seen king tigers with washed out colors, but I can't tell if your fish is a king tiger or not from this photo. Can you get pics of the entire body, from side and above?

Sorry, Eric

Re: Planning major overhaul of tank this week, remove plecos or not?

My L397 grew from 3cm-4cm TL to spawning in 13 months. I think your fish should be sexable by next spring.
