    Il have ago at Iding them, atm theyr a little too fast to photo, will wait until they have calmed down (when im trying to get out of doing uni work). I’m only confused about them being D. dangila simply because they are lacking any eyespot behind the operculum that you see on photos but this may be due to them being juveniles (nearly an inch long)???

    Well i went into lfs and found a rather nice danio, unfortunately, theyre too small to go in with the Ctenopoma atm, so they will have to grow up with the baby fish. there is 14 of them which were misidentified in the shop as pearl danios, i think they are likely to be D. dangila but there are a few photos that show it to have an eyespot? its definitely got the ‘moustache’.

    Wow! that is impressive, the B. simplex male had lots of irridescent flecks on his face and especially around his pharynx area. sounds like your B. channoides are far nicer. can’t wait for the pics.

    I had mine in a community tank for the first week or so but that was because i was sure that he wasn’t guna spit em out for another week, he doesnt eat though so if you have a tank spare, might be worth putting him into his own little tank without food for length of ‘gestation’. i started feeding them on algae i cultured on the windowsill as soon as i noticed the fry in the breeder (used the algae and copepods in it as they were less likely to foul the tank if the fry weren’t interested in food). I also noticed that they were very slow growing fish but it may be different with B. channoides? hope that helps?

    o and also, he typically held about 15 eggs and he was about an inch long. I’m guessing that you didn’t see the mating ritual?

    I’m still not happy with it, its either got too much of something or missing another thing… i replaced the impeller, its still making a rattle! are all externals this loud? I’m working on the background, something simple like black or blue i think. Going to pick up the Staetocranus tinanti soon!

    The dorsigera are showing off to each other as we speak hehe. i can sort out the Cyprichromis back into a malawi/tanganyikan tank so that isnt a problem.
    Its a mixture alright lol, no biotopes atm in my house lol. i do like the idea of them though. once i move it will definitely be an option worth considering. think im going to be moving alot of stuff now then. will the reedfish be ok staying in with the dorsigera? i really like them in there and they prefer the slower water that ive got in there. Il keep you posted on how it goes. thanks again.

    Yeah thats the plan, i forgot to add to the list the 4 orange tailed gobies which would be fine in whichever doesnt have big fish that will eat them (they’re only 2ins at the most).

    I got some polished chinese dark pebbles to compliment the dark gravel i have in both and also to give the effect of varying sized stones like you would find on a river bed. il get pics soon.

    Thanks again Dunc! i did notice when playing with the impeller again that one side of the plastic that surrounds the shaft was more worn on one side which makes perfect sense for the sound. guna buy both bits on ebay now.

    Thanks again Dunc.

    mines the curved bladed impeller so i think you’ve made it clear for me now. ive played around with the impeller and think its sounding alot better except for the resonating sound coming from it which (in a sherlock moment) i believe indicates the impeller and shaft need to be replaced, they are about 4-5 years old anyways. thanks for the help Dunc.

    I’m not one for hybridising, but seeing a krib with colours the same intensity as a L. caeruleus would be spectacular! (not so much hybridising, more just dreaming lol) i think it would definitely be a fish to raise the benchmark at any show!

    I’ve got some breaking news, it seems that i won’t be able to put the dorsigera in anyways, they’ve bred! I’ve noticed they’re not the greatest parents, often both going for food at the same time then upon return to the eggs noticing that many have disappeared, then they look at each other as if to say ‘i thought you were looking after them?’ lol. The eggs are all gone now which im assuming is just down to them just being new parents. So i think maybe acaras will have to stay put after all or possibly moving to a slow flow tank like the puffers (still going to have to lose some fish though
