    Beautiful little fish. You’ll have to keep this thread fully informed.
    Wouldn’t mind having a dabble with these.

    Hi Paul the adults don’t touch the eggs or fry in my experience. Good luck!

    Hi Matt
    had picked that info. up from yours and Manuel’s previous posts but am still gonna be cautious with my first eggs. Once I’ve got some fry then I’ll be more cavalier and let them get on with it unhindered by huge hairy hands scaring the beejesus out of them.
    Cheers

    just had my first eggs from my four fish. Am waiting to put them out but consistent warmth hasn’t been a feature by me so I’m being very cautious as I only have the four fish.
    Hopefully my eggs will bear fruit. (well fish actually).

    this is by way of a information post for UK members. Currently probably the best shop in the NW has a shipment of Notropis chrosomus in. They are extremely reasonably priced and sexable. Flying out fast, but there was still a significant number when I looked in the tank last night.

    Update to prior post:- all of the eggs on the second spawn had disappeared by Sunday am.
    Removed the breeders, water changed the tank and selected a third pair. This time it’s definitely not the same spawners. We’ll see how this goes.

    No aggression ever seen here…the worst is the males making facing to each other.
    (we have different species most likely).

    Thanks Mike, that’s very interesting. It is possible that we have different species. I’ve never seen fry of any species I’ve had, beat each other like this .
    Be interesting to see whether it abates with age and dominance. Will keep them together until they mature I think.

    Here’s an update on my R. wui situation.
    I’ve ended up with a dozen strong, quickly growing fry that grab at anything live that goes past their noses. They are 2cm tl and chunky like their parents. Will take some pics at w/end and post them.
    They are very aggressive towards each other without causing any damage and I assume this is pecking order related. Has anyone (mike) seen this with their fry.

    I picked another pair out of the stock tank on Sunday and set them up in a different tank but with similar decoration to the original spawning tank. They spawned yesterday and the male is fastidiously watching over a clutch of large eggs. Not able to count the eggs as yet.

    I will have the PDF available tomorrow, probably.

    Stefan,
    I would welcome a chance to look at that paper.

    Nice pic mummymonkey.

    My pic’s no more illustrative than mummy’s. A true Brazilian eques. Be interesting to see what the fish look like at your LFS. If they are longer and slighter in the body they could be melanotaenia, given that you’ve mentioned the yellow hue.

    KK, thanks for the info guys.
    Yea they do look like aeneus but with a fresh coat of paint sort of. Nice looking fish IMO so would like to find out more specific info on water chem, temp and such. I’m guessing they fall into general cory parameters.

    The guy said they came from Peru, but I’m pretty sure he meant they were just imported from there. Didn’t seem very informed about them.

    is this something that u would say applies to all species or… I mean two species of tetras can coexist in the same tank, no?

    Be extra careful when thinking about purchase of these fish as some aeneus types are being exported from Brazil as eques. The nicest version of the 3 types of eques is stunning and distinguishable from aeneus at 5 miles. Two come from Peru btw. The more attractive one is Brazilian. I’ll try and get a photo and send it to you.

    Has anyone any idea if D. translucida have been bred and how?
    I know there are a couple of reports on the web but as they contradict, I don’t trust them.
    I have taken advice from Pete Cottle as someone who has actually kept them, but want to guarantee some success because they don’t turn up that often.
    Cheers, Mark

    If you want Mark I’ll send you a breeding report although it can be found in full in Peter’s book.

    Hi Mark,

    Is this not one of the species the guys at Bolton Museum bred? Pete and Paul are probably your best bet for info on that group of fish?

    Incidentally I just took delivery of another 50 D. dracula last night

    Good news Paul – maybe the losses were just naturally weak fry?

    very possible Matt. Will have to see what happens with the next spawn which I’ll try in another tank when I’m happy with growth and stability on these ones.
