    Finally my collection of cichlids and others have been sorted into tanks for compatability and growth,

    These juveniles are still very young and show little colour. However we have noticed that they are growing rapidly.

    A Mayan cichlid which has been undisturbed in it’s original tank for a month has grown an inch and is so at home that it has performed major excavations to improve it’s personal cave. It has several other species as tank mates but they respect his seniority.

    The melanura is a difficult one to photograph. It is either in hiding or on the move.

    Yes indeed.
    So far we have only discovered three plants small enough to go into an aquarium. A hair grass, a plain regular looking grass and a leafy plant which is dark green and purple. The melanurus use the hair grass as an armchair. They insert themselves into the grass and take a siesta, it is a good hiding place also.
    I have just discovered that the melanurus is unique to Guatemala and possibly to Lake Peten.
    I have a pretty tank with barbs, mollies, guppies and angels. This tank is planted with 8 different species imported from Malaysia. This tank is kept completely separate from the others.

    Much prefer to look at your native stuff than yukky farm-bred mollies. /thumbs_up.gif” style=”vertical-align:middle” emoid=”:thumbsup:” border=”0″ alt=”thumbs_up.gif” />
