  1. Hey was just wondering why you don't see a lot of geos for sale or people breeding them anymore what's the go where do I find them keen to get onto a few different variants any ideas?
  2. Hi all, i picked up some geos last night that I was told are brachybranchus but I'm not entirely convinced. I put them in with my brachys and this morning they are all swimming around happily but there us some small differences. They seem to be more yellow than the brachys with other subtle colour differences but the most notable is they don't have a black throat, i will let some pics do the talking. The first is two of the new ones and the second is one of my brachys in amongst a school of the new fish. From alot of googling this morning I'm thinking Rio branco but the colour still isn't quite right. Any help appreciated. Cheers mick
  3. Will this be ok? Looking to get two Bolivian Rams. I have: 3 x Orange Head Geos 15 x Black Phantom Tetras 6 x Sterbai Corys 7 x Pepp Bns 1 x L066 Pleco Tank is four foot... Also, are Bolivian rams bottom dwellers or will they hang around mid tank as well? (I don't want any more always on the bottom) Thanks

  5. This is for the avid geo enthusiasts/keepers I bought a breeding colony of 7 geophagus sp. Tapajos 3 weeks ago. All seven went in fine and settled with only a few split fins from the move. The next day I noticed one of the geos was really dark and was showing its stress lines. It sat hovering above a piece of driftwood constantly. except when it got chased away. and did the same for a couple of days. I then found it dead on the bottom of the tank when I woke up the next morning ( tanks in my room ) I've done two 50% water changes since as per norm. Last night I found one of what I believed to be a male resting on the sand. and thought it must have being there guarding an area to breed. And this morning I found it dead on the bottom of the tank. Other tank inhabitants are 6 small blue rams and 3 medium angels. Water parameters are: Temp 28.5 Ph. 6.8 nitrate under 20ppm ammonia 0ppm Hardness 40ppm Any help would be great as I haven't got a clue on this one.

  8. Hi Everyone This is probably a stupid question, but how do geos and discus get on. At the moment I have 4 discus in a 4x4x2 and I am finding it hard to resist the urge of having a couple of geos, my problem is that i dont have another free tank at the moment, so my question is will they live together?
  9. new camera new pics!!! taken with a canon 7d (acquired recently), with some sigma lense lol (dont know, brothers got it), photos are basically the first photos taken with the lense, so still alot to learn PS no images have been modified in any ways, still need a new light!!

  11. Hi all, I'm jumping back in to aquariums after a long break, I'm looking to put together a small eartheater setup and was wondering what everyone's preferences are when it comes to substrates? I know the finer the better for these guys but was hoping to avoid sand, the only plants I was looking at using was some java fern and maybe some val, can anyone recommend a substrate they've been happy with? Many thanks.
  12. I read somewhere before about geos (I have Orange Heads and Lecos) and the addition of Florish Excell...it was probally japes thread somewhere.... I cannot locate the thread now but it suggested that it wasnt /maybe such a good idea.... I have plants in there tank... At this stage i havent added anything to there tank.Anyways geo owners anyone have any thoughts/experience on this subject... Thanks chickadee...
  13. hey guys i have a 6x2x2 sumped setup that i want to put geos in and make a geo display tank just wonderin if i can put frontosas in there as well or will they fight cheers pete
  14. Well I didnt think it was gonna happen till I got them in their new tank but amazingly my geo altifron tocantins spawned last night. Was amazing to sit back and watch. As info for these guys is hard to come by its gonna be a learning curve for me.

  16. im getting a new 6x2x2 for my discus and was looking at adding a few geos , can anyone suggest which ones are suitable temperament wise
  17. Hi guys, About 6 months ago I purchased 4 Geophagus Surinemensis from a lfs. I put them in with a baby Oscar and a few barbs. The 4 Geos were doing fine until it came time for me to move house. The Oscar was given to a friend, and I put the 4 Geos and 2 barbs in a 50L translucent storage container that I had been using as a sump. I set it up with a filter and some of the aquarium plants so it was a fairly nice little home for them. They lived in the container for about 2 weeks. When I set up my 4x2x2 tank in the new house, I did a complete renovation of the tank, with a new latex background, new substrate, new heater and cannister filter. The 4 Geos were doing fine at first, but they started showing some very odd behaviour after about a week. They started becoming very cautious at feeding time and generally just became very shy and flighty. They started huddling in dark corners and under plants and rocks, but they weren't just huddling they were kind of nudging each other to try to kick the rest out of their hiding place. There is not a huge amount of hiding space in the tank as it is a display tank. This culminated recently in them hiding almost all the time in a sort of "panic" trying to all be the one to squeeze into the smallest space and getting any fish already in that small space out so they could take it's place. They are all showing strong vertical dark banding and their dorsal finnage is constantly erect, with spikes completely vertical. They seem to have developed a cronic disorder! Then last night I noticed the largest male upside down in the hiding place. I pulled him out and tried to right him, but he was pretty much just floating around upside down in the current. I removed and euthanised him. The others have since shown some periods of upside down and floating, but only for a few seconds, like they have been "stunned" but then come good again. They are all still alive (24 hours later) but they are still showing this constantly alarmed and frightened behaviour. previously I gave the tank a parasite treatment as recommnded by the lfs, as there was alot of flashing/scratching of the gill area going on when the tank was set up at the previous house, and it continued at the new house. I gave the first treatment 10 days ago, and the second treatment 3 days ago. Not sure if it may have anything to do with it. Ammonia, nitrite are at zero (filter was run continuously from old tank to new so no cycling occured), temp is set to 26 degrees. I did remove the activated charcoal from the filter and replace it with glass noodles on Saturday as well. thankyou for reading this long post, any ideas of what the problem might be?

  19. what is the timeframe from eggs being laid, fertilised and then picked up by parent?
  20. Hey all, ive tried google, but it never seems to give you the answer you are looking for. Im sure some poeple on here are quite skilled with the knowledge of geos that they have. I have 1 female and 3 male Geophagus tapajos orange heads, after tuesday next week i will have 5 females and 3 males. I was wanting to know: 1 . Is it better to have more males then females, or and equal ratio? 2. Do they pair off? 3. When females are holding, should i remove them from the tank, or remove the pair, or leave them as they are with the rest of the colony? 4. What are the best water conditions for them to breed, eg PH, temp etc? 5. Are fry easy to raise and feed, what food are best for them to be fed on? 6. What is the best diet for the geo's to be on? While i am at it, i have a few questions about my pair of green horse faces (Satanoperca Leucosticta) 1. Should they be kept with my orange heads, or in there own tank? Will they interupt breeding with the orange heads? 2. Best diet to be fed? 3. The two i have keep puffing up at each other, and jaw locking, is that normal? or does it mean they are both boys? I might post some picture up later with further questions. Thank you all.
