  1. My lfs just ordered in 5cm EBJD for sale. I have read and seen pics of the bread, but never seen one in person, or know of anyone that has kept them. Would like to know peoples thoughts as I am tempted to buy one.
  2. Hi all, i put a wtb add up for some africans to keep tanks cycled and to growout a colony or two. I had a mystery doner give me some yellows and the males have black fins, i haven't seen many with this trait lately so I am going to breed them and bring back the black. The pics were taken not long after they arrived so they are a bit stressed and they have been fed colour enhancing food which has made them a little sooty. Any input or pics of your yellows is welcome. Cheers mick
  3. Just wondering if anyone has any adult electric blue acaras? Google images yields fish that still look like juvies, and I was just wondering what sort of colour and look they have when they are larger. Did a quick search on here but didn't see any, apologies in advance if this has been asked before. Also.. would one get along with 4 oscars 3 rivulatus 2 bocourti 1 brasiliensis 2 green severums, 1 massive banded leporinus and some plecos in an 8x2x2 with a 6x1.5x1.5 sump
  4. About 2 weeks after we got our electric yellows, we noticed one was holding ... so we got a small tank and learnt how to strip her. Long story short, we're pretty sure they're hybrid babies ... anyone have any idea what she's crossed with? They each have small white markings down their sides, they appear to have a different body shape to the mum but perhaps that's because they're still juvies. They're around 1 and a half months old and 1.5cm in size approx. Picture of mum (holding) below.

  10. So i got a batch of 1cm electric yellows, today i notice one of the bigger one has black dorsal and anal fin, just like a mature male yellow would have but not as solid. Is it safe to say that it could be a male?
  11. Hi All, It's been a while, I'd lost interest but a mate has got me keen into the africans again. Anyway, I used to breed yellows and all the yellows I saw (lfs, breeders, anywhere) were nice and bright. Is it just me, or are there some faded/light yellows out there, I remember them being almost fluro even with standard/cheap food?

  15. Hi All, I have recently got myself some Yellows, Hongi, Empress's etc.. Have noticed some of the Yellows and Empress with egg (i presume) under their mouths. Whats the best plan to save these little fellas? Wait till she spits them and try to catch, or move into a holding tank until she does?
  16. I have a female electric yellow holding. I moved her into a tank with a small shy ellioti about 3cm, a very small julidochromis transcriptus 2cm and a ****feldi about 4-5cm. I have a back wall completely stacked with lava rocks. She has given me offspring before as she was holding when I purchased her. so my Question: will she spit with these fish in the tank.
  17. My male is attacking the female is this normal in mating her fins are getting bad hes following her all around the tank they have been together for a few months now with no problems. Should i be worried. Sent from my GT-I9300 using Tapatalk
  18. I have a large male electric blue in with about 40 other cichlids. The reason I'm concerned is that he is showing similar signs to low oxygenated water (constantly gasping for water/air.) apart from gasping he is fine, eating, swimming normal etc, this has been the case for about a week. The weird part is that he is the only one doing it, all the other fish are perfectly fine and happy. This one has me a bit confused, hopefully someone else a bit wiser can help me out Thanks in advance for your help

  20. Hey so probably opening a can of worms here but.....I'm going to ask anyway! What's everyone's thoughts on white knights and albino electric blues are they one in the same or different species? If different species, what's peoples thoughts on albino electric blues? And what's the availability of these guys? Thanks Karen
  21. Hey guys, I noticed one of my yellows has a mouthful of eggs, I'm wondering how long it takes before I'll see the fry swimming around

  23. I've almost finishes cylying my tank and wanted to see if anyone is the brisbane area had some ebjd available , don't have to ready right away I don't mind waiting a week or two Cheers,
  24. Hi, around two months ago i bought a breeding colony of 12 electric yellows and also added 9 of my own full size yellows into the tank in the hope of mouthfuls, It's been about 2 months now with no luck, water parameters are fine and i do water changes weekly and feed several times a day. Also there are plenty of females in there. Just after any helpful tips to help kick start this process, Cheers
  25. Hi all Having troubles with electric yellows. Firstly I bought 4 large ones last weekend and placed them in their own tank. Over the course of a day or so, they turned black around face and were very sluggish. I tested water, which was fine, and dosed with a small bit of melafix. One died and the others improved a little. A few days ago I bought 3 more slightly smaller ones along with 2 blue dolphins and placed in same tank. These were looking very healthy and seemed to give the first batch a new lease on life. But now I have only 2 yellows left, all other fish in tank have died over last 48 hours. They go pale, struggle to swim, then die. Just did another water test and no change from a few days ago. I am out of ideas. Any suggestions welcome. Thanks
