  1. I thought I had a pair of Royal Whiptails, the male is the smaller of the 2 and has had definite bristles for months now (first pic). The larger one I thought was female seems to be developing very fine hairs on "her" snout (second pic). Do females get any bristles or none at all?
  2. Hi I have just bought 2 whiptails and just wondering how you tell the difference between males and females ? I have done some online research but info seems vague and confusing. Any feedback appreciated. Thanks

  5. Just took a couple of quick shots.Please excuse the dirty glass and flash as i am a lazy bugger.Both these boys are on eggs atm.The smaller male needs a bit more practice as you can tell by the infertile eggs.Ill try and get a shot of the female before she is about to lay looks like she is going to explode. Bigger male Smaller one Cheers Leigh
  6. Ok got some royal whiptail eggs in the tumbler and they are starting to hatch.Have been reading lots of info on the web and so far have bought a fry saver like brenguns from matthew at the fish cave.And i bought some spiralina powder and some agar agar to make some frozen food for the fry.I also have some rockes out in the sun in a bucket to try and get some algae going for them to graze on. Just a Q for brengun if you read this is how do you go about making the frozen spialina food as am not sure on the mix i should be using. And any other info i should know regarding raising would be great. Cheers Leigh

  9. hi there do whiptails eat plants
  10. I was disappointed to find the pair of royal whips I brought from the auction on Saturday were dead in my tank last night. They seemed ok on Sunday as they were munching on some wood, but not sure what happened after that. They were in a quarantine tank with my other purchases and they were the only ones that were dead. All others happily eating etc. Other fish included pair texas, pair angels, three baby plecs and pair long fin b/nose. Quarantine tank is 4'x18"x18" I am a little stumped as to what was the cause of the death, but both had bloody marks around their fins and a bit on their belly. NOt sure if this was pre or post death. I have seen similar on hoplo catfish that have died - normally from being harassed by a breeding male. I am interested to know if the other two pairs of royal whips that were sold on the night are still OK. If anyone out there has any ideas on why the royals went belly up, I would be happy to hear your thoughts. Might help me for future purchases.

  20. Would it be OK to put 3 9cm BN's (2m1f) in a 2ft tank with 1pr whiptail catfish for about a week while I set up a new tank? The male whiptail is sitting on eggs, the BN's not breeding yet. KJ
