Colour Changes In My Haps/peacocks

24 August 2014 - 12:45 PM

Hey guys,
 
A bit confused over the colouration of 2 of my peacocks/haps at the moment. Basically I bought a Copadichromis borleyi (Red Fin Kadango) and Protomelas taeniolatus (Red Empress) from a LFS believing they were both male, by my judgement based on the colouration they were showing at the time (about a month ago). Both fish were being kept in tanks of their own species at the store.
 
Over the last month I've noticed that they've both undergone some colour changes... the fins on the Copadichromis borleyi turning from the white blaze and grey to solid orange, and the Protomelas taeniolatus bascially colouring down to nothing.
 
Both fish are roughly ~8-10cm long and are housed with 6 other same or smaller male peacocks/haps, which haven't changed colour. I cant see any signs of major aggression between any of the fish currently (which I know can cause peacocks/haps to lose colour).
 
All pictures were taken under the same light with an iPhone 5. All fish are fed exclusively new life spectrum cichlid formula and thera a, with some spirulina flakes.

 

So what do you guys think about this?

The Fish Cannon

13 August 2014 - 06:47 PM

Saw this on Reefbuilders the other day, thought I'd share :)

 

One company is using fish cannons to safely get migrating fish through man-made obstacles. Salmon are curious creatures going from the saltwater ocean to travel hundreds of miles up freshwater rivers and streams to return to where they were born to spawn. Along the way, the salmon navigate through some serious obstacles with head-scratching amazement, but occasionally run into dams and other obstacles they can’t get around or over and that is where the Whooshh Innovations fish cannon can help.
