Triggering Champsochromis Caeruleus into spawning

8 years 6 months ago #32680 by scubadiver
Stripped six fry from her, enough for a bap.

She probably swallowed some when I caught her.

Mike, I do try to stay away from grey and brown fish, but I really like the feather fins. The male furcifer ruziba that was in my show tank for a while looked awesome.

Since I tend to move my fish out pretty soon after getting them to breeding size, its not a long term commitment.

Tropheus was what I had originally targeted but veered left.

The fish you recommended looked pretty interesting and will definitely look for some fry to get a hold of.

I would try and talk you out of that. i never felt that featherfins, especially boops and furcifers made great "living room fish". When they color up they are stunning - they just dont color up that frequently. I got tired of the grey fish comments.

Once you tire of these guys, consider bucchochromis spectabilis, aristochromis christyi and the malawian gar. All great, top of the food order predators that arent too hard to keep with a big tank.

Congrats.

Very cool Jason!!! They are great holders, mine held to free swimmers, and stripping doesn't get any easier!!! When I bred mine, Sam Borstein told me I'd be shocked at the size of the fry. He was right. Wait until ya see how big they are!!

Negative Karma for rule enforcement is a badge of honor :)

Well it looked like I just needed patience

Not the best video but I just grabbed my iPad the closest thing to me and i did not want to disturb them to much.

Hopefully she will be a good holder, it will be interesting trying to strip her.

Some more thoughts -

80% changes are a bit excessive except for the most over crowded tanks. A little more consistency may help.

These are young fish. I think you may need more time with them.

Nothing increases production like eating fresh food - non pellets. Silversides, raise some convicts, frozen plankton, etc.
