  17. hey guys ive been involved in the whole aquarium thing for about 5 months now and i am addicted, but i havent had the chance to breed or have frys yet so i dont know what to do. i bought a royal whiptail today and the fish shop reckons it is pregnant which i believe also. do these lay eggs or are they liveborns? What is required for them to lay eggs on? rocks?if so how many? and how do i go about getting the fry after they are born? every bit of help is very much appreciated, thnx kenny
  18. i have finally had a bit of success with my whiptail fry. I have one pair about 13cm long they have laid eggs a number of times but I have never had much success raising fry. On the last occasion I figured I would try something different. I grabbed a heap of weed from an o/s pond and put it a small tank with an air filter, then used water from the main tank to fill this, added the newly hatched fry and hoped for the best. well 3 weeks later and all is good, there is heaps of weed and bottom of the tank looks dirty but the whiptails appear to be doing great, they are swimming more than I have ever seen them in the past. I feed with BBS(frozen) and fingures crossed they will keep on keeping on. I have another batch of about 50 eggs that have just started to hatch so I will be doing the same with them. It's not the cleanest tank, but the water quality should be reasonable given the amount of weed...anyway we'll see how it goes, here are some pics.
  19. just a few pictures of some of my whips and some random pics as well Planted 4ft Farlowella Whips Male female LG6 Royals
  20. Hey guys, Picked up a pair of Whiptails for a display and I'm not sure exactly what kind they are. Not being very up on catties, here's a photo for the people out there who know what they're talking about. Closest I've found (well, Brengun found) is LG6 Loricariinae sp. http://www.planetcatfish.com/catelog/sp ... es_id=1772 Cheers, japes.
  21. I had given up on my 3 Rineloricaria eigenmanni ever breeding and I had 5 cories and a dozen neon tetras added to the tank. NOW they decide to lay eggs and the tetras and cories were eating them! You have never seen cories and tetras caught so fast in your life. They are now in a bigger mostly cory tank. Back to the whiptails. I read that they like leaf litter so I tossed in some leaves and water from the pond and the water went a lovely green. I am hoping this is infusora? Fry would eat that right? I have no idea if the eggs are fertile or not or even how long it takes for them to hatch. Can anyone help, please?
  22. Hey all. I've recently aquired a few of these guys, and am keen to know as much about them as possible. They're not a royal, nor are they a common whiptail, but something different again. All I've found so far is http://www.scotcat.com/articles/article87.htm and http://www.planetcatfish.com/catelog/sp ... es_id=1772 Any of your help guys would be great. Dave
