Has anyone any idea if D. translucida have been bred and how?
I know there are a couple of reports on the web but as they contradict, I don't trust them.
I have taken advice from Pete Cottle as someone who has actually kept them, but want to guarantee some success because they don't turn up that often.
Cheers, Mark

Hi Mark,

Is this not one of the species the guys at Bolton Museum bred? Pete and Paul are probably your best bet for info on that group of fish?

Incidentally I just took delivery of another 50 D. dracula last night /smile.gif" style="vertical-align:middle" emoid=":)" border="0" alt="smile.gif" />

Cheers

What Colin said /wink.gif" style="vertical-align:middle" emoid=";)" border="0" alt="wink.gif" /> Danionella are great, fun and most interesting fish! Enjoy and keep us appraised please.

Hi Colin,
Not sure?

I don't think Pete tried too hard with these; I think he was busy on all the other Danio types he had on the go.

Are the dracula settling ok? Minimal losses? Are you trading the dracula or are they for your personal collection?

Regards,

Mark

Yeah, Pete and Paul bred loads of them and still are as far as I know?

Cake or death?

No losses with the Danionella - I think the trick is to not take them out of water at any time, i catch them with a plastic pint glass etc.

twenty of them have been put into the Parasphaerichthys tank, which has been the intention for a while now. The rest are available if you want to send me a PM?

Cheers

If you want Mark I'll send you a breeding report although it can be found in full in Peter's book.
