    Torso has kindly sent an awesome series of photos of his Barbucca. He says they feed well but never seem to ‘bulk up’ and provided lots of useful info. Has anyone else got experiences to share?

    Andy Rush has kept them in the past, i’m like Mark and not kept them.
    bit timid about keeping them as they might be too much hard work.

    In terms of feeding Mick? By the way it’s real nice to see you around the place again.

    yes, Matt. I don’t know how many of the group of 10 is still there. sometimes I can see a gravid female but no fry. y. sp orange are going with them, but there I’ve only a pic of the only youngster. they are qiuck movers.

    I got the whole stock of tiny and week B. diabolica some time ago. They survivors are doing fine by now in a tank with a lot of hiding places

    I still find it difficult to kkep them. They do best in a tank with some B. brownorum, which I run with pure osmose water. Here a gravid female. So far, the much thinner males seem not very interested in females. As they can change the tank over a seperating glass – a tank aof 50x40x30 cm split in two parts – I hope they decide to stay one day in the females “appartement”. At the moment they prefer the company of some P. alternans and try to join them.barbucca-diabolica-DSC_3283.jpgpartement”.
