Biotodoma Wavrini

Probably my favourite Clichlid at the moment, he has bags of character prowling the front of the tank.

Hyphessobrycon amapaensis

Makes an interesting alternative to Glolight Tetras, the colours are a lot richer in H.amapaensis /smile.gif" style="vertical-align:middle" emoid=":)" border="0" alt="smile.gif" />

Hyphessobrycon sp. Red/blue Peru

I had a shoal of these about 18 motnhs ago, though lost them all in an almost tank wipe. Found these ones in another shop though /smile.gif" style="vertical-align:middle" emoid=":)" border="0" alt="smile.gif" />

Hyphessobrycon takasei

[Image Can Not Be Found]

[Image Can Not Be Found]

Tatia perugiae

[Image Can Not Be Found]

[Image Can Not Be Found]

They don`t live in the bag /smile.gif" style="vertical-align:middle" emoid=":)" border="0" alt="smile.gif" /> That was just a only time I`ve been able to get a good picture of them. I boo-booed the introduction of these fish some what. I have seen at least 4 induviduals at anyone one time (I purchased 6) I`m fairly confident they are all there.

Amblydoras hancocki

Parotocinclus maculicauda

Hyphessobrycon Sp. Blue Ribbon Mato-grosso

Sorry about the quality of these shots, though I thought they were better than this /sad.gif" style="vertical-align:middle" emoid=":(" border="0" alt="sad.gif" />

Enjoy

Well there's a name from the past.. /smile.gif" style="vertical-align:middle" emoid=":)" border="0" alt="smile.gif" />

Hello Geoff, how's it going?

Your wavrini is showing some nice reds. How old is he? Do you have more than one btw Geoff? I was under the impression that they are best kept in groups?

Some nice fish there Geoff, especially the tetras. /smile.gif" style="vertical-align:middle" emoid=":)" border="0" alt="smile.gif" /> Don´t take this the wrong way, but your Biotodoma would be much happier with some company and a bit more food from the look of it.

I did attempt to introduce a couple extra to the tank, however the original picked them off. Though having said that he seems quite happy mixing with my keyholes.

Those shots were taken shortly after I bought him about 12 - 15 months ago. He has bulked out a bit since then.

Lovely fish and great photos /smile.gif" style="vertical-align:middle" emoid=":)" border="0" alt="smile.gif" />

Mature, sensible signature required for responsible position. Good prospects for the right candidate. Apply within.

Geoff Biotodoma are group species and they would not exist singly in nature, just trying to help. It does look a tad underfed there, too. Have you got any recent pictures? /smile.gif" style="vertical-align:middle" emoid=":)" border="0" alt="smile.gif" />

I`ll have to get the camera charged first, as I`m not sure how old my latest shots are. Though he certainly eats a lions share of the food now.

I don`t know, but might have a bit of a boisterous one, as I`ve seen him "flare", for want of a better word, at his own refelction, almost to the point of attacking the glass of the tank.

The flaring behaviour is normal. These fish develop social hierarchies in which an order of dominance is formed. The problem that occured when you added more specimens was most likely because that one fish now considers the entire tank its territory. Also ideally you need a larger group than three. How big is the tank? If it´s large enough to hold a group I would remove that solo fish briefly, re-arrange the decor then return it adding maybe another 4 or 5 at the same time. You will be rewarded with a far more interesting experience in terms of fishkeeping. /smile.gif" style="vertical-align:middle" emoid=":)" border="0" alt="smile.gif" /> About the tetras. Why so many "oddball" species? Do you breed these fish or just a particular passion of yours to collect them? There are some interesting species there.

Cheers Neal, They are an interesting species, sometimes worth looking for "Centromochlus perugiae" as they appear to have two scientific names. I`m not sure if one is valid whilst the other isn`t, as at least on the "big catfish" sites, Ie Planet Catfish, ScotCat and also fishbase amongst others the naming seems to be split 50/50 between the two.

I certainly hope to breed them at some satge, though I think I might need to move first /wacko.gif" style="vertical-align:middle" emoid=":wacko:" border="0" alt="wacko.gif" />

At the minute, I`m content to collect, though if I can find space, might slip a breeding tank in there somewhere.

Centromochlus perugiae is the current valid name for the cats guys. /smile.gif" style="vertical-align:middle" emoid=":)" border="0" alt="smile.gif" />

Ummm reference is from my brain Geoff! /blush.gif" style="vertical-align:middle" emoid=":blush:" border="0" alt="blush.gif" /> The name was changed in 1998 so most of the "big" websites like Fishbase or Planet Catfish (and ourselves /laugh.gif" style="vertical-align:middle" emoid="Laugh" border="0" alt="laugh.gif" /> /tongue.gif" style="vertical-align:middle" emoid=":p" border="0" alt="tongue.gif" /> ) should have it listed as a Centromochlus.
