Re: Peppered Cory Width?

Was the PVC originally for another fish species or did you add it specifically for the Pepper Corys? I tend to agree with the other posters in that Cory's are shoaling fishes and appreciate wood pieces, plants, rocks, etc to relax and move amongst. I've never see any of my Corydoras hiding in a cich...

Laser Corydoras Variants?

Just a quick question as I was wondering how many variants of the Lazer Corys are in the hobby. I've heard of green, orange/gold and red.

Thanks,

J

Here's another shot of the same fish. I'll attempt to capture a top or underside photo. Image

Identification of Bristlenose

Hi, just wondering if anyone could properly identify these BNs? Also looking to sex the fish in the first photo.

Re: L129

I spoke with the hobbyist who bred the fish and these are the parents of the above fish. She mentioned that she had kept the below fish with a pair of L144s and doesn't have any veiltail or brown BN plecos at all. Just wondering what some of you may speculate what occurred. Appreciate the feedback. ...

Re: L129

Appreciate the feedback from both of you.

Starting to dive more into plecos but I've noticed that there seems to be a lot more mislabeled fish these days. I've noticed the same thing occurring with the West African dwarf cichlids as well.

Ancistrus sp. - but which one?

Hi all, A friend passed by and gave me a pair of Bristlenose plecos (1m/1f). Can anyone identify the type of BN? http://i16.photobucket.com/albums/b43/jays_aquaria/Central%20and%20South%20America/c7cc9efe.jpg http://i16.photobucket.com/albums/b43/jays_aquaria/Central%20and%20South%20America/ae878fbf...

Unfortunately Aquabid's sellers are primarily based in the US and I'm in Canada. With the additional cost of shipping, customs and clearance it wouldn't be worth it. I did manage to locate some breeders in Canada and am waiting to hear their responses.

Thanks for the info. It is strange that none of the LFS' in my city currently have any BN. There are however a lot of breeders, just not locally, as BN's are scarce these days around here.

Interesting you should recommend that because I was just telling a friend a few days ago that I'd like to try my hand at breeding BN plecos. My only problem is that there are absolutely no BN's available in any LFS at the moment. It looks like I'm going to have to find a breeder or importer myself, ...

Wow! Nice pictures! I definitely need to find a larger home for them. Could document the breeding in an article? If so, I'd really like to read it and post it on my own personal aquaria website.

Panaque maccus sexing

I believe I have what is a Panaque maccus, see http://www.planetcatfish.com/forum/viewtopic.php?t=12713 , however as a self-confessed pleco newbie I differ to the experts on this forum. I was wondering how difficult it is to breed maccus in an aquarium setting. Does one usually purchase 4-6 juvenile...
