    ah mosquitos; hate those little buggers. Seem to getting less able to cope with their bites as I get older. Must confess Matt that leeches have given me the willies since I first watched Humphrey Bogart in the “African Queen” when I was a kid.

     

    Have a good trip!!

    probably not in the next week or so I’m afraid as we’re shorthanded unless Pete replies from home from memory.

    this is an interesting thread developing and I’d be really interested in your progress with the fish NOTG.

     

    Andy – wasn’t aware yours were from a different supply. Never knew Robin ever got any Africans in

    About oooh ten years ago i had both of those fish in a tank at the same time ,they were both what I’d class as easy none problematic fish ,they’d eat a nomal varied diet frozen/dry and both were none aggresive.

     

    well if memory serves Andrew you were the only person in our peer group at that time who was able to keep these fish alive and well.

    Remind my memory but did somebody not get a spawning from some of yours?

    We’ve not made other decisions as yet Matt. We like to get the rays fettled well then look at something else for the middle to upper reaches.

    very good 🙂

     

    part of a project?

    we are about to develope a  display with P. henlei and are thinking of this as a good addition, and pretty much fireproof as far as the rays go. Habitat degradation and loss of aquatic fauna is planned to be the theme.

    Have just collected 3 pairs of these little stunners. I chose black males which were different to some of the males in the collection. The pictures posted in an earlier by Ferrika depict the colours of the other males and all of the females. As soon as they settle I’ll get a pic done and posted. The black/chocolate colouration is a lot prettier in my view.:D

    Hello all, these little beauts are now back in the UK hobby after 3 years abscence.

    They can be had from our premier UK LFS, Pier Aquatics, in Wigan. They’re in lovely condition as usual with the fish here.

    They are feeding well on easy to find processed fish foods.

    Ooh nasty, hope it’s not a bad case?

    Can you access your work email from home? If not I’ll need an alternative address as already sent it there…

    too low down the food chain to have those sort of privileges Matt so you’ll have to whizz it here. Will push my address to you via a pm.

    well as it happens our main aquarium support colleague is off to Costa Rica very soon so I think I’ll read then send her the abstract with some location data and attempt to inveigle her into doing a spot of net dipping, bagging and bringing back. Not sure she’ll tumble though

    have also tried this with macrostoma eggs with miserable results. Under gentle airation the eggs looked fine for a day but soon fungussed.

    offered a whole raft of pseudos last week but most not available when ordered.
    Almost all of the fish are to be found in Adrian Tappin’s fantastic book.

    only ever kept one species Matt, same as you, and I thought the aggression was all ‘handbags at dawn’. Never saw any damage to any of the fish I had.
