    Orange Chromide Disease

    Hi all, Been quite a since I last been on this forum. Posting here because I can't seem to find answer anywhere else (other forums). *HEAD UP, THIS MIGHT BE A LENGTHY READ* Before you guys get into the main report of this post, here's the parameters of my tank: Tank size - 46 gallon bowfront...

    My Blue Ram (Mikrogeophagus.ramirezi) Breeding Log

      Did't think of that haha. I thought they just take the worms like my other fish fry do. They seem to feeding on the powdered food though. I'll continue with the microworms and the powdered pellets, and see how things go.

    My Blue Ram (Mikrogeophagus.ramirezi) Breeding Log

    Well looks like my fry have become bored of feeding on microworms. Tried feeding them today and they completely ignored them (getting picky). They seem more interested in nipping at my plants and the surface of my substrate. Decided to make powdered fry food by finely grinding Northfin Krill...

    My Blue Ram (Mikrogeophagus.ramirezi) Breeding Log

    Here are some quick shots, as I was feeding the fry and their parents this morning. Apologize for the horrid quality, the sunlight coming from the arched/halfmoon window lit up my entire fishroom (absolutely glaring). included some pics I took yesterday evening as well, which seems like a better...

    My Blue Ram (Mikrogeophagus.ramirezi) Breeding Log

    Fed and checked on the rams just a moment ago, and some of the fry are beginning to starting to wonder around the tank (hiding in and nipping at my cabomba.carolinia and Myriophyllum.scabratum). The parents seem to have a hard time trying to keep their school of fry together. Once a group of fry...

    My Blue Ram (Mikrogeophagus.ramirezi) Breeding Log

      Will do, and sorry to hear about your loss. Losing a fish hits me hard every time too, especially if they're a pair (end up feeling so guilty).   It's a good thing that the store I mentioned will order any fish I request as long as they have a supplier and I order a decent amount :)

    My Blue Ram (Mikrogeophagus.ramirezi) Breeding Log

      Keep 3-4 pairs (future breeding project with rams I plan to get from the US and Germany), sell some to a few members of a local forum I'm also apart of (actually got a waiting list put together), and provide the rest to a local cichlid specialized store that I often shop at (might trade for...

    My Blue Ram (Mikrogeophagus.ramirezi) Breeding Log

    Fed and checked on the parents and their fry this morning, and things are going very well. The fry are all feeding (starting to see their bellies turn white from the microworms, and poop trails behind them haha), and becoming more independent (went from a cloud that followed the parents, to...

    Rare Bettas?

    If you can link us the article we might be able to clarify what exactly that article is referring to in regards to "rare bettas". I know in older articles, as more patterns and colour mutations were being bred, some were considered "rarer" in the market/fish trade at the time. Nowadays, when...

    What Fish Is This?

    Glad to be of help :) Kept these little guys in the past. It was always interesting to watch them court eachother.

    What Fish Is This?

    Based on the size and colouration, I'm going to stick with scarlet badis (Dario.dario) for now. Search up the species on Google, and let me know if it is a scarlet badis.

    What Fish Is This?

    Look like scarlet badis (Dario.Dario) to me. How big are the fish? If possible could we get a direct flank shot and face/frontal shot as well?

    My Blue Ram (Mikrogeophagus.ramirezi) Breeding Log

    Just got home and checked up on the pair and their fry, and saw all the fry are free swimming :D I'm going try to get a drip line going to top off the tank (opposite of the side of the tank). If I start to see any stress signs from the parents or fry I'll stop immediately. Some are already...

    My Blue Ram (Mikrogeophagus.ramirezi) Breeding Log

    There's a otocinclus in the tank with them, been there since the start (post cycle). They don't seem to mind it, as it stays on my sponge filter grazing 90% of the time. Wonder if all the fry started free swimming yet, can't wait to check on them later this evening   I'm supposed to do a water...

    My Blue Ram (Mikrogeophagus.ramirezi) Breeding Log

      Yes, but only about 7 of them as of 8:00am. I'll check up on them again later this evening. Nice to see both parents working together (passing fry between eachother) to corral the fry back to the nest when they start wandering around. Will keep everyone posted

    Cool Giant Fish

      Not in a 75 gallon. Maybe in a 120 gallon, but you'll need to have them divided (until they want to breed), or have a lot of hiding places for your female. Flowerhorns don't make good tankmates, even with other flowerhorns, due to their aggression.

    My Blue Ram (Mikrogeophagus.ramirezi) Breeding Log

    Another morning update: The fry are starting to jump/wiggle around a lot more, and the parents have relocated them to a larger/wider pit they dug. The pit also happens to be directly under my java fern, which is now uprooted. Guess the roots will help serve as shelter and security.   Will update...

    My Blue Ram (Mikrogeophagus.ramirezi) Breeding Log

    Checked up on the pair and their fry earlier this morning (8:30am), while I was feeding them, and things are progressing quite well. The wigglers are becoming more active, startling to roll and bounce a little. 3 more days until they start free swimming, or so I hope. As always, I keep everyone...
