    No mate, I hadn’t. The last addition I saw was the Garra. Looking class though, I’d definitely consider a fast-flowing setup if I had space for another tank.

    He’s far too pretty for that

    After the male aggy started giving the female a hiding, I moved him into the Peacock Goby tank – and he tried to make mincemeat of the Goby :/ Gave him a couple of rips in his fins and didn’t look like he was going to stop, so I moved him almost immediately.

    My tap water is coming out at 7.5 atm, pH in the maculatus tank is currently around 6.

    There were fewer eggs this morning, and I’m not entirely convinced they’ll hatch, but she’s guarding them dilligently. I haven’t removed the male from the tank, but the lights are off and my room is nearly pitch black – every time I’ve been in to have a look, she’s simply been guarding the eggs and leaving the male alone, so I’ll keep him there for the time being.

    Although I have a spare tank, I don’t have a spare heater or filter and don’t particularly wish to take water from the maculatus tank as that would mean adding fresh water to fill it up, which would alter the pH rather drastically methinks.

    I’m keeping details in a blog in our IC Matt

    You got the Sewellia! Great choice mate, they looked so stunning in the shop tanks.

    Those Inlecypris are looking smart now too; colours really coming out.

    Yeah, they’re huge compared to when you first had them. Really interesting fish. Do they have any particular breeding requirements Matt, or is it just a case of conditioning the fish and making sure their water requirements are correct?

    Most accounts of spawning D. maculatus (that I’ve read about) tend to involve spawning on smooth rocks/pebbles, though I’ve read about one or two that have spawned on leaves.

    I struggled to get a decent quality pic of the eggs, bloody female hiding them /smile.gif” style=”vertical-align:middle” emoid=”:)” border=”0″ alt=”smile.gif” />

    Yeah, Matt suggested grabbing another female or two – to be honest though, if they’ve spawned once, I think they’ll spawn again (as a pair). I just need to make sure I get her hiding places right.

    Well today she’s out and about as normal – eating and breathing normally. I’m sure she’ll be fine; just needs some time to recover.

    The male is in the 2ft sin bin atm

    I’m not sure I got the caves right. When they spawned the first time, her cave must’ve been perfect for her – he couldn’t fit in. After I removed him and looked at the eggs, I moved the cave slightly. When the eggs were gone and she was back to normal, I added him in again – and this time she didn’t have any refuge.

    I think, if I get the caves right and put him back in when she’s fully healthy again, I might have better luck.

    This was taken at uber low quality which is a shame because it would’ve been a stunning pic. Look at the bugger’s fin extensions..

    If the orange hue is an indicator, then yours are channoides imo.

    That has a distinctive orange hue – presumably albimarginata?

    Your fish looks more orange in that photo than it does “in real life”.

    Oooh! Revelation!

    Looked on google, came up with this for albimarginata:

    And this for channoides:

    What are the key differences between the species, Matt?
