fishlady--my tanks

Well, I've been playing musical fish with my tanks so I modified my stock list.

1) I took all the females out of my 180 gallon and added some new male fish and 3 Synodontis Petricola. The tank still needs more males. Looks pretty empty except at feeding time.

2) I sold all my adult angelfish but still have some of the juvies (too many). It was fun having a breeding pair but I was getting overrun.

3) Added a pair of rainbow darters (Etheostoma caeruleum) to the native American tank

4) Couldn't help myself from buying fish at the Circle City Aquarium Swap:
Aulonocara stuartgranti Maleri (Sunshine Peacock)
Otopharynx lithobates
Cynotilapia afra (Nkhata Bay)
Astatotilapia latifasciata

5) Sold my larger juvies and moved smaller fish into larger tanks

6) Sold my stapps to rm-slover

I'm interested... I'm interested.  If you're willing to part with the adults i'll make one heck of an offer.

At one time we had over 70 stapp fry. We advertised them on the GCCA classified and my husband would take bags to Chicago (he was teaching a class there) and meet buyers in parking lots along the way.

Now the stapps stay in the community tank and all the fry are eaten. I sometimes feel sorry for them since my big male phenochilus bugs the hell out of them. If they weren't so quick and mean I'm sure he'd eat them.

However, I did save 2 from the last batch which are also in the 55 grow out tank. I can't sex them yet so I don't know if its a pair but next time I'm in Chicago... if you are interested...
