    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

    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

    Tatia perugiae

    They don`t live in the bag

    Parotocinclus maculicauda

    Hyphessobrycon Sp. Blue Ribbon Mato-grosso

    Sorry about the quality of these shots, though I thought they were better than this

    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.

    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?

    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.

    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.

    Do you breed these fish or just a particular passion of yours to collect them? There are some interesting species there.

    I certainly hope to breed them at some satge, though I think I might need to move first

    Centromochlus perugiae is the current valid name for the cats guys.
