new parents with fry in my 40 gallon breeder.
Not sure. The problem is the parents are in a heavily planted community tank and it's really hard to catch anything.
Will any of the fry be available for sale?
For me, they are not too bad for temperament. I have them in a community set up and have not noticed any damage to the other fish. I will say though, they have claimed about a third of the tank during this spawning.
They are also pretty young. I expect as they get bigger, their aggression will increase. Especially during spawning.
I keep them with other Nanolutea's, Black Phantom Tetras, SAE's and some small rainbow fish.
How would you describe their temperament compared to Convict Cichlids, Blue Acaras, Bolivian Rams, etc? Are they suitable for a community set up, so would you be concerned about aggression? Also -- their size: what commonly kept species would you compare their size to?
Thanks, they are indeed beautiful. These are tank raised. I bought them from WetSpot tropical fish. I feed them a mixture of foods, they are omnivorous.
Beautiful! This is a new species to me. Love the coloration on parents. Are they wild-caught /F0? Or did you get them at an LFS? Are these cichlids largely a protein-based feeder, or do you include a fair amount of veggies in their diet?
