    Hi Lizzie,

    I wouldn´t worry about inbreeding to much. As long as you breed the specimens that look healthy. A friend of mine has been keeping and breeding fish for some 30 years and he has been breeding on a single line (from a single pair) for several years without any apparent ill effects. Though it might be wise to bring in some fresh blood now and again if trying to keep a healthy stock.


    30 years of one line, impressive! I hope my pair of Pepper corys can match up to that too. They’re the only fish that actually reproduce besides of the Red cherry shrimps in my tank. I have an Aeneus cory bronze and one Aeneus cory albino, they have had ( a lot of) eggs, but no off spring so far. I also have one Cory panda (last in the tank at my pet shop) which is about the same age of the Pepper youngsters, they intermingle but I wonder if they will ever pair up. Is that even possible?

    Thanks so much, Matt. That’s such a relief, I didn’t want to miss them anyway.

    This is a drawing picture of how my tank looks at this moment.

    I have found very little data on Guatemalan Turtles. We have found another species in the woods near a stream. It was out of the water and quite dry. The nearest we have been able to come is a red eared slider, possibly Trachemys scripta elegans. Some attributes agree but many do not. The skin pattern is certainly wrong and the plastron design is different, although this is variable.
    If anybody has any better ideas, they would be welcome.
    Apparently the red eared slider is not only a common turtle but very popular in the aquarium trade. It is surprising that we have not found one of these guys before.


    Oh my! That certainly is a very beautiful animal! I love it. Thanks so much for sharing this.

    Oh my! That is impressive, those caves! I love gekko’s, because I have had friends from Mailasia, Java and Ambon. They’re wonderful little creatures. Thx so much for sharing this!

    I’m not sure. But to me it looks like one gets a little bit wet when you open the doors, not to mention the avalanche of fish that might jump into your pants..erm..pockets.

    I agree, the planted one looks better.

    for fungus you should add something like meth blue, which is an antifungal…happens sometimes, and from exp if it starts, all eggs will get it


    Thanks my good friend

    the eggs hatch in 3-4 days depending on the temp of the tank, a rule of thumb is 7 days from laying is the first time you feed them.
    not sure on the tree Lizzy, the fry seem to swim to an area thats dark so a piece of bogwood propped up a few cm would be fine.

    Thanks Mick. There is bad news. Lots of the eggs are covered by fungi ( I hope I spell that correct) I don’t understand this, the fungi are on the eggs who are 24 hours older and not (yet) on the others, while they are on the same places . I haven’t seen any fry yet.

    Lizzy a way to save some of the fry if the parents are to stay is, a decent sized piece of slate propped up a few cm above the gravel and the fry will flock under it for protection, just make sure the parents can’t get under the slate.

    Guys, how many eggs can a cory lay? Both couples are spawning now. I stopped counting at what..200? And they keep busy at it! /tongue.gif” style=”vertical-align:middle” emoid=”:p” border=”0″ alt=”tongue.gif” />
