  1. Video footage taken by konings. End of clip shows saulosi male chasing a female around. The male definately has an irregular looking "split" bar on the left side. Makes you re evaluate your breeding goals.
  2. I remember you telling me this and im doing it now too lol. The male i got from you is perfect so iv naturally adopted the same standards:beer:
  3. Here's a couple of young males I've bred that are looking up to par. I get about 2 out of 10 that have quality thick symetrical bars like this. Thats enough of a challenge to get me interested in improving these some more. [MENTION=2649]goldenswimmers[/MENTION] what you think mate? [MENTION=57]DFishkeeper[/MENTION] my breeding colony is from you Doug
  4. Flowerhorn are generally very aggressive fish and in a short amount of time u may be left with just one but there is the odd occasion they can get along. They also look their best when kept alone too ie. Will show their best colours and kok. A blue background often works best to bring their colour out aswell as slightly alkaline water. Some coral rubble in ur filter is usually the simplest way to achive this likewise not suitable for s.a cichlids.
  5. would appreciate some advice if anyone knows
  6. Id chuck some of your peacock fry in there mate once they get to in-edible size. Will def give them more confidence.
  7. Are there any mbuna that WON'T hybridize with labeotropheus fuelleborni? Pseudotropheus? (Saulosi) Metriaclima? (Lombardi) Cynotilapia? Labidochromis? (yellows)
  8. Good question "where are they now"!!! I sold mine onto [MENTION=7343]Fishunter99[/MENTION] They were just starting to breed with the odd mouthful or 2. And in all my wisdom that was the time i got bored with them
  9. look like young leccy blues to me. males wont get colour til a bit bigger usually 7/8cm.
  10. pretty sure [MENTION=57]DFishkeeper[/MENTION] line breeds for this trait.
  11. Its a pretty awesome list already mate. Not an easy task to track down all those species.
  12. Some beautiful fish in there mate. Wow. Looks fantastic.
  13. mate i like ur work but unless ur are buying WC with certificate or F1 from certified parents im not sure you will ever know. tank bred inbred linebred can/could be playing silly buggers with u here as to who has what colours where. just my 2 cents. nice fish either way whatever u call em

  15. theyll be fine for a couple weeks mate. 1 week easy. livies is a good idea.
  16. Den bred one like this, or just the start of it. Nice hey. Login • Flowerhorn fun!
  17. i have a few 3cm peacock fry in with mine. not too big that they eat all the food and not too small they go unnoticed. they seem to relax my fronnies a bit. or more fronnies i spose. BUT they still get skittish. and for no reason at all sometimes. one will look at another and they just seem to know what the other is thinking " lets freak out". haha. thats why texas holey rock is a no no. nice round smooth rocks only that dont catch eyes.
  18. i remember your last build - it was amazing. cant wait to see this one ur off to a god start - starphire and and epic piece of wood!
  19. only heaters i now use are the sera 300w. 5yr warranty and have a heat sheild. got them from techden too.
  20. nice looking fry johnno. they from blue and erics?
  21. Iv just setup a 6x2 that was a reef tank. besides having to scrape some coraline algae off the glass Iv had no dramas and cant see why there would be. Without looking up the data/specs of certain grade silicon i would say saltwater would have no effect. My guess is silicon will also have certain resistant to low/medium grade chemical degradation aswell. Selleys or dow corning websites may have some info on this.
  22. Sweet. Must have be great to sit and enjoy watching them last night. keen to see what you do with lighting mate. I'm running old school T8 on my burundi (dimly lit), Power Glo tube which show their colours up great. Tried alot of other spectrums but the powerglo is one of the very best for showing off fish natural colour IMO. But hard not to go with LED these days.
