  10. Hi all I have a colony of venustus (1 m and 3 f) and the male is attacking the females after they are holding. He has already killed 2. I am thinking I should take the holding females out or the male out when the females are holding. Any advice appreciated. Thanks
  11. hey guys just thought i'd show you all my male venustus that has stared colouring up nicely.. he had a really nice blue shimmer through his whole body (although the video didn't pick it up to well). i bought 3 of them hoping to get at least 1 male, and 1 male is all i got haha. the other 2 i'm pretty sure are female. he's only about 12cm at the moment so still alot of growing and colouring to go. well this is the video, let me know what you all think . Edit: put on youtube now.

  14. Hey guys just a quickie, Venustus roughly what age/size do they breed at, i have 2 and i think i got lucky with the male and female pick, the male seems to be digging around making a laying area and they seem to what looks like be pairing up but i thought they would be too young to be doing this allready as i have only owned them for 1-2 months and bought them from the shop he would be roughly 4 inch's she would be allmost 3-4 he is getting his blue on his fins, thanks in advance Tom.
  15. I recently acquired a colony of 6 mature venustus, the largest of them is the male (about 15 cm) he has colored up and is clearly the alpha male and the other five are all typical female colors and patterns, I was told the 2 largest are male and the other 4 smaller fish are female, the 2nd largest is only slightly smaller than the male but is not colored up like a male...yet, will the smaller male not color up while there is a dominant male present? I have read on a few sites that the males will kill each other... If this is the case these 2 males seem to get on, although 1 does not have any male coloring and appears to be female colors...Has anyone got experience with these fish can tell me if maybe I have 5 females or not.
  16. I am having trouble sexing my venustus and its starting to annoy me I currently have a colony of venutus that range from approx 15 - 20cm and I am not sure how to sex them. All the websites say they get blue on their face if they are male, well all of them have blue on their face. Some have blue faces, yellow bodies, a yellow strip that follows their top fin down to the middle of their eyes and on their tail they have yellow at the top and black on the bottom. Others are pretty much entirely blue, some just have a blue face and yellow body. They are so big that I am worried about venting them, so I'm trying to work out just by their markings. I will try and get some pictures of them later tonight Thanks in advance Regards Ryan
  17. my female venustus seems to be going to around 6 days and spitting the eggs, not only that when she spits them only 20% seem fertile, the rest are a pale tan colour. any advice on fixing this issue???? i have put her in isolation when she starts holding so she isnt getting harrassed, a few more females around the 15cm mark would be great but not many people are willing to part. any help would be appreciated, cheers ryan
  18. i had a female with a mouthful that was getting harrassed so i put her in isolation in the tank. now she has let some go. my question is do i get the fry completely away from her or leave them all in together????
