syno njassae

PostAuthor: trumps » Thu Nov 24, 2011 22:25

hi all,

does anyone know if you can get f1s of these. If not are the wilds as hard to keep as the mbuna?

If this is in the wrong section then please move to the correct one
cheers,

Topic Moved to Bottom Feeders (Cats)

They are no different/harder to keep. In fact they pretty much keep themselves

I meant compared to Mbuna. (TB/F1/WC)
It all depends on what Juvies you have, some are obviously Bigger/Smaller than Others, but i would say at 350l and 30 Fish you are going to be at the Upper Limits of the Tank/Filter But i think a Couple of Syno's won't hurt as they keep themselves seperate from the Mbuna and don't involve themselves with them

i currently have one filter which is quoted at 2000lph i know this empty but do have a spate rena xp3 that i can add which also means i can use the hydro inline heater. Would this be suffice with the amount of fish and tank size.?

going back to your other question... no there are not any F1 available. no one has managed to breed them in captivity without horemone streatments and even then it only works on the females and they have to x breed with other syno's.

I'm going to give breeding them a go though :good: I think anything is possible if you give it the right environment :yes I just need to work out the correct environment, i have my ideas though :thumbs-up:

So far i've found wilds of these an absolute beginner fish :good: just leave them alone and they are happy messing about in the rocks, you see short bursts of activity from them then don't see them for a few hours. Once lights are out then they come out to play :good:

i don't think he has tried :no most people dont bother because no other person has succeeded :lol: dwarf petricola and multis are the only ones that easily breed i think :?

i'm no pro on them mate so don't know what quantity is best, sam found 1 just spent all day hiding. they are natural shoal fish so a group is a must IMO. I have gone with a group of 6 and they seem VERY happy in 350 litres. I think Sam has 4 now so see what he says about that size group :good:

I think its more a question of how well your tank is filtered and if there is enough places to hide! :good: the bigger syno's have kicked out my big trewevasae out of his cave and he is a good 7"+ fish, he tries to nudge them back out but they are just to quick for him :lol: Oddly not 1 fish has tried to nibble on the syno's, my plec always gets in a tussle and loses a bit of finage yet the malawi's seem to know they can't mess with these guys :?: :? :?: :? :?: :? :?: :?
