  1. Hi all, thought I might start a discussion about the rise of deformed fish for sale. So far I have seen mollies, convicts and even parrots in jellybean form. What are peoples thoughts on these fish? Personally i think they should have been culls and not linebred. Do these deformities shorten life span or create other health issues? All input from both sides appreciated. Cheers mick
  2. I've set up a tank dedicated to these guys: http://shrimpkeepersforum.com/forum/topic/7111-new-library-article-paratya-australiensis/ They are super lively and entertaining, especially when they swim slowly through the gentle current. They are also amazing at cleaning algae/slime so far - much more so than my other natives. Anyone have experience breeding them and figuring out what determines the colour variations? I know they're not super popular but thought I'd still ask! Mine had lost their colour entirely when they arrived, but over time they seem to be settling into three appearances: - Greeny-gold tinted bodies (very light tint) with metallic stripes/speckle. - Bluish tint with minimal darker stripes/speckles. - Red-brown tint with darker red stripes/speckles. Still trying to get some decent photos but will post when I do! Since they're all in the same tank I'm wondering if the colours are hereditary rather than due to environmental factors, but it's too early to tell that. Mine are from captive bred stock (the livefish site) heaps came berried with seemingly large egg size, so with luck they'll have large larvae and decent survival rate. I already see a teeny shrimplet about 3mm that likes to eat the algae from the walls. So fingers crossed a fair few from the new generation make it to adulthood!
  3. Hey guys, found this thread over at PerthCichlid.com.au and thought it was worth posting here as comprehensive lists of fish we have available here are always helpful. Original thread: http://www.perthcichlid.com.au/forum/in ... ded&start= (Thanks to Alan and Tammy) ---------- Corydoras: adolfoi aeneus, albino, black, Peru green, high fin ambiacus arcuatus atropersonatus axelrodi agassizii barbatus * reclassified Scleromstax barbatus bicolor (Doubtful) bifasciatus (Doubtful) bondi brevirostrus burgessi caudimaculatus cervinus concolor davidsandsi duplicareus elegans ehrhardti gossei habrosus haraldschultzi hastatus imitator julii kanei leopardus leucomelas loretoensis loxozonus maculatus melanistius melanistius melanistius melinotaenia melini metae napoensis nattereri nijesseni oiapoquensis ornatus paleatus, albino, golden, high fin panda polystictus punctatus pygmaeus rabauti reticulatus robineae schwartzi serratus seussi similis simulatus sodalis sterbai, albino surinamensis (Doubtful) trilineatus undulatus venezuelanus virginiae weitzmani zygatus These guys are said to be more closely related to Corydoras melanotaenia then aeneus. Thanks to Ian Fullers Identifying Corydoradinae Catfish for clearing that up. sp. green stripe * sp. orange stripe * sp. red stripe * Following C numbers are also in the country: C38 (colour variant of serratus) C40 CW45 C90 Hope this helps some people out there looking to get into some of the less common Corydoras.

  6. Hello all, Due to rising concernes coupled with the rise in cross breeding these two varients of L numbers and there stock being miss labled. This forum will now take a stand on this matter and if any memebr is found miss labeling these cross breeds then they can find themselves having to refund the buyer and also having a suspension on there accounts. To give some a bit of back ground on these variants yes there is documentaion of these cross breeding in wild however if these fish are kept in the same breeding tanks these will interbreed and therefore the prodginy will not be true (if first/second or third gen FME). These have been cross breed for some years by un scroupulous breeders who use the cross breeding to obtain larger and more consistant batches of fry (to gain more money from the 333). What to do if you do have stock of these or are unsure of liniage, all sales of suspected L333 x L066 must be written up as this to save any confusion for the buyer and more importantly mis representation of stock being sold. As far as I am aware I have "heard" on the grape vine that this "new" cross will be given a AQualog reference number in either the next release or the following. I thank you all for your understanding of this forums stance on miss labled and also this type of breeding practices. Regards John
