  1. Thanks - will chat to Andrew in a few weeks about it
  2. Hello ACE, How is everyone this evening? It seems so long since I was last here! I was wondering if someone could let me know what types of Neolamprologus brichardi/pulcher are available in Sydney current -- are any named localities doing the rounds? Has there been any new importations of forms of these species? Cheers, YeW
  3. Turns out, if I read the post below the one I posted... there's a reasonable list *sigh* Anyone have anything not in that list?
  4. Hey Folks, I've not been around in a while . Aside from N. multifasciatus, N. ocellatus (and maybe N. brevis) are there any other shellies in Australia? I'm specifically wondering whether N. similis ever made it here? Hope everyone is well . YeW
  5. Article by David Midgley Species Information Scientific name: Dicrossus filamentosus Synoma: Crenicara filamentosa Common name: Checkerboard cichlid Country/Region of Origin: South American Specific localities/morphs: relatively few - almost exclusively from Columbian Orinoco region. Natural habitat: clear (although tanin rich), shallow, moving water ( Natural foods/prey: micropredator, primarly insect larvae. Water chemistry in the wild: pH: 5.3- 5.5, gH Predators: larger fish/birds etc. Brood size: ~100 - 200 Sexual dimorphism: pronounced, males have a lyre shaped tail, along with blue colou
  6. The fish I suggested are $4.95 each! Beat that Geo or Tropheus fans!
  7. Pelvicachromis spp. The most colourful, easy to keep cichlid: http://www.malawicichlidhomepage.com/other...is_pulcher.html
  8. It's a question most scientists wont give you a good answer to (me included): Look here for a bunch of definitions: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Species_conce...ions_of_species and here for more info: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Species_problem A variant is some intraspecies division (like subspecies, variety, morph etc). btw: Monophyly doesn't allow interbreeding. Monophyly just means that they share a common ancestor. The key issue here is time. Chimps and humans are part of a monophyletic linneage -- but they cant interbreed. That's because there's enough genetic difference between t
  9. Thanks for the nice comments . It's a nice plant!
  10. nice aquarium setup! Welcome to ACE!
  11. This species (Ceropegia ampliata) is flowering in my courtyard right now. It's a bit phallic so Cobalt Craig will appreciate it even if no one else does :D! This species traps flies within the flower, imprisoning them until the flower's stamens ripen. Once they do they release their pollen (which covers the trapped flies) and then the hairs prohibiting their egress wither and the flies are able to leave -- with the aim of them becoming trapped in another C. ampliata flower and thus achieving pollination. <a href=" title="Happy New Year! by petrichor, on Flickr"><img src="http:
  12. I'll second much of what Joel said. They are easy to spawn but the fry are more difficult to raise. Being egg scatterers it's also much more difficult than breeding fishes with brood care (like cichlids). Dave.
  13. Glenn has some experience with this condition in mbuna. Maybe PM BaZ for some advice or to get him to look into this thread.

    ab1443 - This post is a technical issue (so it belongs in the technical forum). I've moved it and left a pointer to from the general cichlid discussion (something I'm not supposed to do!) but in future it will be moved without notice . I'll probably get in trouble from the other admins, but as you are new to ACE I thought I'd take the chance . Welcome aboard! Cheers - Dave.
