    What variant are they? And do you have any pics? If so, can you post them? Are they tank bred or F0? Do you have 4 pairs? Where were they shipped from? PM me with all the details if you like?

    Thanks for the offer, but that would mean I end up with a spare male. And you’ll know just how territorial they can be. They’re nothing like your average “krib”. My male is fully grown now and won’t even tolerate corries in his tank! In fact anything living near the bottom is fair game in his eyes. Apart from my L114, who can certainly handle himself.

    I would suggest then that you take all 8 which will give you,not only the one that you want, but also a massive input of genetic diversity to work with with on your breeding project.

    your going to struggle with this one Jared, iv’e only seen them twice in the shops and that was a while back bud.

    mick

    I have 8 wild adults but can’t let you have just a female. Am quite happy to let you have a pair. They came to me error and although they are verrry nice I don’t want them

    A friend of mine breeds these. I think he was the first to do so, certainly in the UK if not the world?

    Let me know if you are interested and I will put you in touch with him. He is based in Boston Spa.

    I hate to contradict, but the info you have posted is incorrect but only by a short period. In addition to which the fish that Mark has are different in their colouration (see a previous post in this thread).

    Must be miles more damaging to the fish if they’re stripping denisonii rather than mouth-brooding cichlids though surely?

    They’re nice, how cold do you mean when you say “cooler” temperature?

    In the winter the tank they are in can drop to 60F but they are usually around 70F.
    At the moment they are outside in a 40 gallon barrel along with some Otocinclus from Argentina, also. This is the first year I’ve put them outside and we’ll see how they go.

    Having seen those in the flesh I can say they are a stunning species. If it ever gets described it should turn out to be a Scleromystax right Paul? The finnage on the dominant male in the tank is something else….

    They are undoubtedly related to Sceleromystax, but as I have found it may take years for taxonomy to be detailed.

    As Mick le fish has said they are different to the ones that are being bred in Yorkshire at the moment. Only taxonomy can definitively separate them.

    my tank is about 73F and I think they’d look much better in there than your tank

    Great pics of a lovely fish – got any pics of the adults?

    Here’s a spawning sequence that turned out ok. Will post some more when I get a mo.

    is there a common name for this cory?

    They can be found as Baihininho 2 and are again a cooler water species coming from the East coastal region of Brazil. Beautiful fish!

    In some others the dorsal and pectoral fins are elongated.

    Wow! That is a real stunner! How often have you had these spawn?

    This is one of the fry from last year who is now a full adult with full adult coloration.
    I have had these spawn half a dozen times with between 20 – 50 eggs. Initially they spawned when they were in quarantine and the first I knew was when fry appeared out of a thicket of java moss. After that I started removing eggs and from then I had problems with fertility. Only a few were coming through so I went back to the perennial method of leaving the eggs with the parents and letting the strongest survive. I am trying, at present, to get somebody to do the species description but so far without much luck. Taxonomists appear to be either very busy,strangely lackadaisical or corys are not sexy enough to bother with.

    I will find some time to get some adult pics. and post them for all to see.
