    Angelfish Breeding

    I caught one of my Angelfish laying eggs today. This wasn't her first time, but it was her first time not eating them. About a minute later I see my Leopard Angel come to fertilize them (I'm going out on a limb and guessing this one is a male), and surprisingly, he didn't eat the eggs either. If...

    Angelfish question

If I were to buy a male, and he mated with a female, would either of the two hurt themselves protecting the eggs? I currently have a 5" blood parrot, and I was looking into...

My pair...

    400g Growout System Build

    As I ramped up my breeding (african cichlids) I realized I wanted a system with large water volume to grow the fish out faster. I read a lot about aquaculture and used some of those principles in the design. After a couple of months of work it's finally done. I've been documenting the process...

    Zeus unleashed!

    Zeus is my hybrid Hemichromis (Fasciatus x Frempongi). Separated him from my female around a month ago in hopes of pairing my female up with a WC Hemichromis Fasciatus from the 2nd batch I got. Zeus has been in my 180g separated from the rest of the community to ensure he doesn't kill all my...

    Compatible Bottom Feeders

    Hello, I am looking for some advice on compatible bottom feeders. I have a breeding pair of Jaguar Cichlids and was wondering if there are any really good bottom feeders they would be compatible with, or will my Jags just eat whatever I put in there? Thank-You
