    QldMick reacted to Foskett96 in Wild Caught Hypselecara Temporalis - Rio Ucayali   
    I agree with the Salvini. One of my favourite species but I won’t keep them unless new blood comes in as many are either lacking of colour, as well as the fact pretty much all have mouth deformities. 
    Attached is photos of the Festae pair that I used to have. Can’t find a photo of the male from a better angel at the moment though. Second photo is of the female in a friends tank.


    I am the same as you. I am happy to invest more money in wild caught species compared to domestically spawned as many species have been inbred, and cross bred sometimes you don’t know what you are actually getting. 

    With the H. Temporalis so far I have noticed that the wild caught are much more aggressive then domestically raised especially with conspecies. They are very protective of the fry and still have the spawn with them. I am tempted to pull a small amount of them but don’t want to disturb them too much as it is only their first spawn. If so I’d only pull a very small percentage so they still have majority of the spawn with them to continue learning and to strengthen their pair bond

    If you want to try and keep a few alive put them in a large well established outdoor pond that gets at least a few hours of direct sunlight with Elodea, sand substrate and no other fish. The micro foods they require can not be replicated with things like bloodworm. A Well established pond may have enough food to enable a few of them to survive and grow. To try and raise them in a tank is very difficult - although can be done.

    my first malawis were, saulosi, blue males yellow females, and trewavasae blue males ob females. 
    i think saulosi are pretty good for beginners due to the different colored sexes, small size, colored fry and they were the most frequent breeders I've had.
