My tangs

PostAuthor: Simon Morgan » Fri Dec 02, 2011 01:00

Here are my multifasciatus just after they moved in:

They had the tank to themselves for a while, until the J. transcriptus and Triglachromis otostigma moved in! Still, they must be happy, I think there are three breeding females :D

No, all my other fish are South American. I will get some pics up though.

Agreed but they have very interesting social interactions and the behaviour is interesting to watch.

These are not for me, however I do love tropheus and could be sorely tempted to move over to them, if ever I fall out of love with the mbuna.

Nice setup you have above (just not my kind of fish) and look forward to seeing the south americans :good:

Yes, the females can fit right inside and they lay their eggs there. It appears that I have three breeding females, each with their own shell, with a single male and various young at different ages.

I've never met a cichlid I didn't like ;) I'm just into these right now, some day I'll keep Mbuna again, maybe something else! I defy any fishkeeper not to like Tropheus but they are quite challenging! It's worth googling Triglachromis though, very attractive species not shown well in my video.

Some of my South Americans breed in 20" tanks. I've recently spawned Apistogramma iniridae and A. sp pebas in little tanks. Next I will be trying A. bitaeniata. I have a group growing-on that are nearly ready.

I also have a pair Aequidens metae (or diadema, not 100% sure yet) that spawned last week and some large Bolivian rams that look like they should spawn any day but never do!

Morning Simon,

I only have 3 species of Tanganyika's in my tanks now, Neolamprologus buescheri "Kamakonde" Pair breeding regularly, WC Altolamprologus compressiceps Kigoma Pair, F1 2 males 12 females Ophthalmotilapia ventralis Uwile, another tank is filled with 5 F1 male Ophthalmotilapia ventralis Uwile that i took out from the group to bring down the aggression and a male Neolamprologus longicaudatus. Which i might be getting rid of all of them in the new year as i need the room :lmao: :lmao: :lmao: I used to have lots of different species in my cellar but i always find myself going back to Mbunas.

Yes, they are all lovely, I've never had the room myself. It's well known amongst the dwarf cichlid fraternity that rams arn't what they used to be sadly.

Lovely species, feel free to think of me when you "get rid of them" :D
