As its a "man made" species the colors will change from fish to fish. One of the Dragon Blood variations ;)

#364737 Randoms For The New Year

Posted by Fox on 20 January 2018 - 08:44 AM

Not much is new in the fish room, Sold a few species and a few tanks. Downsizing to concentrate on particular species.


Stunning Angels I got from Terry awhile back.


Dimidiochromis compressiceps, My fav Malawi. One of the males showing of his colors.
2 others are trying to show dominance in the colony.



I scored some awesome Nimbochromis venustus from Dicky a few months back, I have 2 trio's left over and split them into 2 tanks. Since doing so the males have colored.
Male 1

Male 2


One of my fav fish in the fish room. Fossorochromis rostratus. The color on this guy is amazing. He's measuring around 20cm at the moment.
One of the females is holding again. Last time one was holding she spat after a few days.





#364188 Discus Pics / Pleco Id

Posted by Fox on 22 November 2017 - 08:51 PM

L333 as said above, Becareful with suckermouth cats in with Discus. If they get a "taste" for the slime on the Discus body they will attach themselves at every opportunity.
I've seen some Discus suffer badly from this, unfortunately in a shop here in Perth and some private tanks.

A few fish from a mates tanks, Only a few here as I didnt want to overload the forum. If you know me on FB you can see the lot on my page ;)

I'm not real happy with how the photos turned out, I picked the wrong day to visit. Water changes and bad lighting etc etc
Always next time :D Gives me an excuse to drop around for another drinking session :D

I was using PB. But then I started making the photos smaller and using PCS to upload.


1100 pics will probably turn into around 50 after looking through and choosing the best, and then I'll cut them again to around 10-20 to post here.
