    I mean't from the boards of course, sometimes life just seems to like to dish things out. Hope it gets better for you. Besides finals I've been ok as far as work over here.


    Thought you guys would like to see an update on the condition of the montys. The adult male, even with a slightly shortened sword, is gorgeous and has a lot of pep. Same for the young males. Its amusing to watch them try to evade the adult male and mate with the females at the same time...LOL

    Bobby: How close is this to your picta?

    http://www.ne.jp/asahi/medaka-ken/k.t/page03-18-03.htm

    Probably the best set of nothos photos I've seen...

    Some of the notables for me would be rachovii, patrizii, cyaneus and jubbi, and of course the chunga for color. I like photos that catch the colors, the gills flared, fins spread, and the fish trying to show its personal best...but then doesn't everybody?

    Also, how exactly do you wet your peat for fry?

    Thanks!

    Thanks! The camera I'm using is a Nikon Coolpix 775. It takes nice photos but the colors leave something to be desired. No expert on photography and hardly handle different cameras but considering the size it is and the cost it works quite well.

    My male montezumae is around 3.5 inches body length and the sword(was) at least that. Right now his sword is missing a inch off the end so is less impressive. He doesn't seem to notice. The young males with full swords have them a little over the length of the body.

    Blue gularis is maybe 3.5-4 but he is much stockier than the montezumae swords of course so appears much larger. They are said to get to 5 or even 6 inches though I would still think him large if this was his maximum size.

    I have a coolpix 5700 - I cant seem to get the hang of the micro mode... and i guess it does video but after owning it a year plus I have yet to figure that one out. Not enough time to read the manual [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile.gif[/img].

    Whats the optical zoom on yours?

    Those are huge killies! I think you told me that before... now that you told me again I still cant believe it! [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile.gif[/img]

    Hi Nflytrap,

    That male gularis is a very nice one. You need to get babies from him.

    I put my peat into a 10 x 10 x 6 inch plastic storage box or plastic 5-10 gallon tank and add 2-3 inches of 95% rain or ro water with 5% hard alkaline tap water. I gently break up any peat clumps. I add a nice handful of najas or java moss. When the fry hatch I add snails 3 days later. I start adding a pint of hard alkaline water twice a day after the 3rd day until I have the fry in my tap water chemistry. I add green water after hatching for most fry unless they are big along with the live bbs. I move the fry into a tank with a slow running box filter without the filter lid and full of gravel or Eheim efhi-substrat after 10-14 days. From there, it is water changes and feeding. If it's alot of fry I separate them into more tanks after a month. I add larger frozen food or chopped live food when they are big enough to tackle it. Once they are sexed out they need room as the males all cramped start to fight and the tank gets stressed and health declines. Sometimes I add a slow airstone to the original hatching container before I first move them into a tank if its alot of fry. The fry will let you know if that is needed by the time 14 days are up.

    That picta picture looks nothing like the reds. Their whole body is red brick and some have the heavy black bars. Really nice. They will soon get a 29 for mass production.

    I have around 30 pairs of symoensi ready to start breeding and lots of international egg requests. The 100 + Mambova are all sexed out and there are more blue ones than red this time. I bred an intermediate male.

    I have some nice arnoldi to breed. I decided to keep a few lacortei even. The calabarica are breeding again.

    My gularis are huge and need to be bred.

    The petenensis are everywhere. The velifera are starting to go with more babies. I need ponds this summer.

    I will get your care package off soon. I haven't forgotten.

    Bobby

    I tell you guys... it just doesnt get better. Ive got bronchitus again *sp* and another death.. possibly two - My friend who is in his 70's was taking his 99 year old mother to Indianpolis for her yearly checkup. She was still in great health, living alone and active in the church. Last year the doctor said she would probably make it another ten years! Well on the way to the hospital in Indy he ran a red light, a car slammed into them and she died. Thats horrible....

    So - Yesterday, Monday the visitation was planned. His wife who is in her 80's and was also in the car passed out. They then life lined her to Indy, because she had broken her neck in the car accident and no one realized it. So shes now in the ICU.

    If she dies, that is 5 in like 4 weeks... and my neighbors were in a wreck and are in an INDY ICU and a lawyer friend of mine was run over by a tractor this week!

    I hope I make it haha.

    Just wanted to releave some tension.. I hope you two are doing ok!!! and you and yours are well.

    Ttyl
