Re: Hello from Australia

Welcome to the site and the wonderful world of zebras. i know what fish cost down under, you must have won the lottery. In terms of other fish with the zebras, it is not uncommon when having to simulate a dry season that it ends with the water temps over 90F (32.22C). I doubt the shrimp or whiptails...

Re: l46 How many pair can you have in the same akvarium?

I do not work with pairs, only with groups. With 12-13 adult breeders I had two males going at about 30 day intervals but with new eggs every 15 days from one or the other. On one occasion a third male in the group spawned. I had egg\s, new wigglers and almost free swimmers. This was never repeated....

Re: Keeping Fry alive

If you are feeding food the fry are able to eat, they should be eating it. I feed frozen BBS or Cyclops and my fry find this and do fine. Fry will also eat "big" food as long as it gets soft so they can take tiny bites. https://photos.smugmug.com/photos/i-nNtfJX9/0/f355fd38/M/i-nNtfJX9-M.jpg I have ...

Re: Keeping Fry alive

Did you see an sort of symptoms? I am aware of this sort of thing happening to a few folks over the years. Basically, it was due to the presence of something the adults are more able to fight off vs the fry. I am not 100% certain but I believe the disease but was oodinium aka velvet. I do remember t...

Re: Hi All

Welcome to the wonderful world of zebras and to the site. Zebras can work in some community type tanks, but not many. And for breeding anything a species tank is almost always the most effective way. But I did house a couple of wild caught adult males zebras years ago in a tank with a pair of discus...

Re: Panta Nouri Carnivore

As for fish not eating food from the land, there are fish that eat fruits and nuts that fall into the water, they do so regularly. What about piranah, don't they eat land animals that end up in the water? Or how about those catfish in France that take pigeons from the shore when they go to drink? ht...

Re: WTB 10x-15x L046 Fry or Adults Group NYC Metro Zip 10901 or shipped

I doubt you will find an adult group at the price per fish you listed. I have two groups. The second is a mix of my F1s and some others I bought as part of a larger deal a few years ago. They are pretty much adult size, there are 13 or so and I would not sell them for $2,600 (200 each). My basic gui...

Re: Hi from Atlanta

Don't be nervous. I keep several species of pricey Hypancistrus and they get moved, or have their tank torn down, several times a year. The tear down is how I get to see them and to redistriubute/sell them. They handle it just fine. The one caveat is to be careful not to ding them with the frame of ...

Re: New 180l Zebra set up

Looks nice. Consider adding some wood. I find my plecos love hiding in and under it. The more cover the fish have, the "happier" they will be.

Re: Hi from Atlanta

Welcome to the site and the world of zebras. You may or may not be correct in sexing. The best way to do so it to vent them. There is a difference in the sex ratios you will get from wild caught zebras vs tank raised. Because of how they are collected, there tend to be way more males than females wh...

Re: Sweden

I have always been bad at sexing plecos. I can only do it one of two ways with any reliability. The most reliable method is to vent them. That is to have them put out their tube so you can see its shape. males have a pointed tube while females have a more rounded blob-like tube. She has to pass eggs...
