the grey ones are juvenile tambraparnei karlos, a fish born to breed, and they never stop. /laugh.gif" style="vertical-align:middle" emoid="Laugh" border="0" alt="laugh.gif" />

/laugh.gif" style="vertical-align:middle" emoid="Laugh" border="0" alt="laugh.gif" /> That's right! I have one male that is just starting to get fin extensions on his dorsal. I'd say two-to three times a week his rear section turns more orangish in color and he chases the other two alot.

Yeah, they're really longfin bristlenose pleco's but I like bearded pleco's it's shorter. No pics yet though. /unsure.gif" style="vertical-align:middle" emoid=":unsure:" border="0" alt="unsure.gif" />

Thanks for the compliments too!
My 60G has a denisoni that I bought from a LFS thinking I could rehab it. I saw the 4 incher at a store and notice it had a 'burned out' red neon bulb. I thought maybe it was because it was alone in the tank and if I returned it home with me then the bastard would 'light up' in a new tank.

It has been a weird experiment, the Denisoni always looks faded or absent with it's red line but sometimes it is there but faded-even then only after I turn the lights on after being off awhile. I've tried color food and everything + the fish get plenty of live/frozen stuff. The weird thing is the dorsal is always bright red. I wonder if this particular specimen has a busted photoreceptor /laugh.gif" style="vertical-align:middle" emoid="Laugh" border="0" alt="laugh.gif" /> .

I have only 1 Narayani because my LFS only had the 1 -this ones' colors are more than I could ask for though..

Lovely to see your fish Urb, they all look really healthy. /cool.gif" style="vertical-align:middle" emoid="B)" border="0" alt="cool.gif" /> Did you ever breed the desert gobies?

Cake or death?

I did. The male was quite a handsome fellow. Unfortunately, at the time I had a 'Dusky Pantherfish'(Neovespicula depressifrons) and it spelled trouble. The male desert goby was not only a relentless pursurer of the female but was also very agressive with guarding his babies. Anyway one day I noticed the male on the bottom, dead-but strangely with all full color and flexibility. It was perplexing. Ultimately I blamed the pantherfish for his demise. I'm guessing the panther ventured to close to the nest and when the father bit him he got poisoned by the Panther. I really can't come up with any other reason for the death. Unfortunately the fry were just a day into free swimming and they were virtually wiped out with the absence of the father when I noticed the tragedy. I removed the Panther shortly thereafter.

I still have the female desert goby-she has lived an amazing 3 years-and what a pig of a feeder.

There is a local breeder of these here in the desert and she goes by karmafarmaquatics.net. I've always wanted to purchase a newer fresh pair off from her and start over-but, unfortunately her website blocks out my email server so my inquiries for trades never go through to her. Would easily trade a Goo Obo pair for the desert pair again.

The Desert Goby such an amusing fish.
