    I have not yet tried to raise fry. This is the first nest I found. At the moment I am waiting for them to hatch.

    tries to dominate the rest of the group

    the “big boss” won’t show up on the set, even not for tasty cocktail-shrimps

    and another male loses instantly all colouring when the dominating male appears

    and is chasen away by the “second”

    last but not least some females

    Great work and photos Charles! Are the eggs so purple in ‘life’ and did you see any of the spawning behaviour?

    yes, Mat. it’s surprising because the pics of Michael show just a slight violet. it could be because of the yellow of the brick that the red becames so dark?

    Just recovered a large boulder covered with eggs at the Zaragoza Public Aquarium (had to dive in, head first up to my chest to do it…)..

    Placed it in a bucket in the quarantine zone (outside exhibition), with a general antibiotic and an airstone.

    From what I´ve found, the key is to feed the newly hatched fry rotifers, does anybody have some info about this?

    Found it here: https://www.facebook.com/l.php?u=https%3A%2…LV2zurbwCzQtSfA

    We´ll give them a try and see what happens…

    Best regards,

    Manuel…

    Wish I’d seen that! /smile.gif” style=”vertical-align:middle” emoid=”:)” border=”0″ alt=”smile.gif” /> I’ve a few more papers on Salaria so will check to see if any might be useful. Do I understand correctly you’d like some info on how to culture rotifers too?

    I think we can get rotifer cultures from another public aquarium, and the quarantine curator here in Zaragoza has got experience in cultivating them.

    I just don´t understand such a high mortality, but the density was also far too big from what I´ve read.

    We´ll give them green water and rotifers, as well as Artemia nauplii and see what happens…

    I´ve bred them in large pools, just leaving them there… 3 – 4 trios in 6000 l and at the end of the year collected about 200 in each of the pools… lots of algae in the pools, so I may use some filamentous algae for the baby Salaria as well.

    As for diving topless in the tanks.. come and do it whenever you want /smile.gif” style=”vertical-align:middle” emoid=”:)” border=”0″ alt=”smile.gif” />

    Hi all

    a video, giving an impression of the curiosity of S. fluviatilis. Taken last year, water strongly moving.

    Cheers Charles
