    Chisumulae tank mates

    I have a small colony of Chisumulae and would like to add another species that wouldn't crossbreed, Mpanga would be what I'd like to add , would these but okay if not what others would be and also want fishes around same size
  2. All good mate, great looking fish and I'll. e back to grab a few more, I'll give you a call, thanks Butch.
  3. Okay Butch, I'll give you a call in the next week or so, thanks Brett
  4. Thanks for your help, I have a few problems with water parameters and this is probably the cause, so onto it thanks again

    Electric yellows

    Yes I was chatting with Butch today and the male I was trying to get photo of looks more like a Zebra shape than Yellows I've had before, I think I'm going to move them on and get better quality from a breeder than buying from local stores, thank you
  6. Hi Butch, I've got around 8 Electric Yellows and I'm concerned that some are Hybrids, one male is long and thin not right shape and others have a horizontal barring on them, never seen this before either.Thinking of getting rid of them and starting again, want to set up a 5x2 ft tank with yellows of around 20, have bought from you before and will be in touch in a few weeks to see if you have them available still, from Ipswich if you remember me .

    Electric yellows

    I've bought a few of these and thinking they might be hybrids, this make in photo is long and thinner shape and doesn't look right, also have a few others that have a blackish bar running horizontal and never seen this before, any help would be appreciated
  8. Okay thanks, there's no spots on them so I'll check the water.
  9. Hi, I bought some fish from a local shop and now all my fish are doing scratching in the tank, how do I fix this?

    Pool Sand as Substrate?

    When you say pool sand I'm not sure it's what I'm using,I have pool filter sand,which is like very fine gravel.
