    Thanks Matt. Did you manage to breed your Biotoecus? Mine haven’t showed any signs of spawning behaviour yet, i’ve had them for about 8 months or so now. Although I kept them in a small tank with tap water for half of that time due to not having enough space.

    Also feel free to you any pictures you want for the knowledge base

    Okay, mine were fortunately pretty big when I got them, my largest male is probably close to 10cm long. Right now they’re in pH around 4,2-4,5 (haven’t measured since last water change so not sure and a temperature of about 24-25C. Haven’t been able to measure conductivity yet but I guess lowering the conductivity might be one of the keys to get them to breed, or at least I hope so.

    Could be yep. I reckon you could push the temperature up a few degrees as well. Are you using peat at all? All the breeding reports I’ve read suggested that peat was a crucial factor. Have you seen the Biotoecus sp. “New Tapajos” yet? Stunning little thing.

    I’m actually using peat as substrate in this tank, something I normally just do with killies and Bettas but I figured I’d give it a shot. But then again most of the good stuff has probably leached out of it by now. And yeah, I agree with you about the temperature, just haven’t came around to do it yet. So I better start making some RO-water and filter it through peat I guess.

    And yes, I’ve seen the “New Tapajos”, very nice fish.

    That P. linkei is incredible oaken. The “black endler” is a fascinating little creature too.

    Where did you buy those fishes?

    Gustav is the B. uberis confirmed? The ones I’ve seen before have always been a more uniform red colour…

    Edit: S’ok ignore me. Just checked the species description and it seems the males are quite variable depending on locality.
