    Copper CT Pair

    3 Weeks old now. Much smaller than my other CT spawn the same age. It's hard to see how many I have because they are very skittish. I'll be moving them into a bigger tank tomorrow, so will have a better idea. Cheers, Jarrod

    Blue Grizzle/Yellow CT M x Orange CT F

    3 Weeks old now. Growing well. Another spawn with swim bladder issues. Don't know what's going on. Perhaps I have lost my mojo and am overfeeding. Giving them a couple of starve days to see if this works. Cheers, Jarrod
  5. Quick update on these guys. I'm struggling a little with them having swim bladder issues. Have moved them into a larger tank and increased the number of waterchanges and dropped amount of food. Here is a video of them when I was transferring them...

    Any earth eater breeders ?

    Hello from Melbourne. Thanks for the pics! Tank looks awesome. You need a little person standing next to it to give us a sense of scale. This forum has had a predominance of betta keepers on it but most of us keep or are interested in other fish. After all, every betta breeder needs a monster fish to dispatch the ugly ones lol. We encourage discussion on any species. In the Coffee Shop forum people discuss whatever the hell they like. Well... we try to avoid hugely controversial topics.

    Any earth eater breeders ?

    Hello from Australia! Now correct me if I’m wrong as I’m only new to this forum.. but is this a beta only forum or all fish? I am unsure. These are some recents pics of my tank as I was doing a water change... these are from my phone so quality not the best and doesn’t do them any favours, and they are so quick! Haha

    I haven't kept geos. They are beautiful fish but probably too big for my setup. Largest tank I have is a 3 foot 😄 Would love to see a pic of your 6x2x2. A tank that size would take up half my fish room hahaha.

    I currently have a 6x2x2 community tank housing predominately geo red head tapajos, some Bolivians, an acara, discus and clown loach, and would love to get more geos..

    Any earth eater breeders ?

    Hey all, I’ve only just signed up and wondering if anyone on here breeds the beautiful South American cichlids known as earth eaters?
  12. Not Happy Jan! Looks like I overfed this batch! Most have swim bladder probs. I will starve them for a couple of days and see how they go.

    Summer Plans...

    Hmmm... Seems I still had a few of the mixed mutt guppies in the outdoor drum that I missed. Went outside this afternoon to scrub out the drum and set up for new guppy spawns and was greeted by a few adults and about 40 babies...lol, oh well - looks like they have just established a summer spot to grow out...lol
  14. Loved the colour of the male when I saw him in store and was happy to find a female who would be a compatible colour match for breeding. Hoping to get more with the colouring of the male.

    Wild b.Splendens Male x Feral b.Splendens Female

    That’s really interesting. I didn’t realise that about Brisbane tap water.

    Red Cambodian pair

    Hahahaha - I know how that goes with photos... I usually forget to take decent shots of the parents beforehand. Wow - 2 x a day water changes, that's dedication Hope the swim bladdery ones come good, It's usually fixable at this age (with reduced feeds) so fingers crossed!
  18. I figure why not since I am not on Brisbane town water which thins out CT rays BIG TIME. I am on the same water here that Paul Busman was on when he was breeding his Red CTs, so I know they do well in the local Redlands City water (we get out water from Stradbroke Island, not the dams that supply Brissie). I'm excited to see how they go. I tried breeding CTs a few times before when I was in Brisbane and each time ended up with dis-proportionally more females than males (2 x spawns all female and 1 x spawn 3 x male, the rest female).

    Wild b.Splendens Male x Feral b.Splendens Female

    Yay for crown tails. Need more self-bred crowntails in the shows.

    Red Cambodian pair

    I seem to have a few swim bladder issues among the larger fry. And there is a huge range of sizes. I’ve been adding green water occasionally to help the smaller ones. I forgot to log when I moved them from the unfiltered 8 litre spawn tank to a 10 litre with sponge filter. Not that it’s a huge difference. I’ve been doing water changes twice a day. In the morning before work and when I get home. That’s also when I feed them. I’m going to move them into a 2 foot tank in the next few days. AND I still don’t have pics of the parents or the fry!

    New Spawns Lined Up...

    Have released all females - all 3 females were starting to build nests in their own containers. Copper CT female went straight to the nest and the pair instantly tried an embrace - first time I've had instant interest like that. No eggs as yet, but keeping an eye on things. Female is helping build the nest...lol Orange female CT had made a couple of trips to the nest to inspect, but nothing yet. Feral female heavily striped and interested in the nest. Male has started patrolling the tank looking for intruders...lol
  22. For anything new it might be worth using postimage though... Photobucket is malware/popup central these days
