Thanks for the ride Russ. Great pictures and a nice looking couple of fish. Is Butkas in the 300 gallon with the frontosa?


:moba :moba :moba :moba :mpimbwe :mpimbwe


Hey JRD, thanks man :D Butkas is in the 72 at the moment and his brother is in the 240 with the fronts. I don't want to combine them again until I have a few more (to reduce aggression).

I'm turning my lap top toward my fish tank and shaking my fist at my calvus. "you guys need to look like this!!!" :x

In all seriousness, Razzo when you feed them shrimp do you thaw it in water or rinse it in anyway? I tossed some into my tank a few times and noticed a light oil layer on the surface of my tank later. I saw it as a problem since I figure the oil will coat the top and not allow oxygen so I took my time skimming to get rid of it, looks okay now. I was thinking maybe put the shrimp in a thin net and rinse? Please sir, share your secret. :wink:


LOL :lol:

Couple things, first off is the quality of the group. My former importer is a friend (he has since retired) - he hand picked some choice specimens for me. Next is the species & collection point: Black Congo White Pearl is known for having the largest pearls of any calvus. Then there is the yellow forehead, that rarely comes in from the lake and my buddy picked my group for me and I ended up with 5 out of 6 wild group with it. I am routinely told by people that I am about the only person who consistently has the yellow forehead on my F1 fry. Again, that's because the adults have it and the male that did all the spawning has it "over the top." Pun intended :wink:

Of course, I didn't not participate in the creation of these beautiful fish (wild or F1) - all glory goes to my Heavenly Father.

As to feeding frozen foods: these fish mostly eat NLS pellets. Fry occasionally get a frozen treat. I thaw in a coffee cup filled with tap. Once thawed, I strain off most of the water and waste the rises in the water column into the sink.

Hope that helps :)
